Market highlights January 4: Cryptos bearish, Tesla up 13%, leads SPX500 to record high

Crypto market as a whole is bearish, particularly the top 20. The DJ30 (+0.68%) and SPX500 (+0.64%) hit fresh highs yesterday in the first trading session of 2022. The NASDAQ100 (+1.2%) also closed higher. Tesla was the standout performer on the SPX500, advancing 13.5% after smashing analysts’ sales expectations.

Most of the top 20 by market cap have lost value, with Polkadot and Algorand being exceptions in the top 12. Solana dropped more than 3%, Cardano and BNB were down more than 2.5% and XRP slid more than 2%. Bitcoin was trading above $46,000, down approximately 1.5% at time of writing.

The live NEAR Protocol price today is $17 with a 24-hour trading volume of $1.4 billion. NEAR Protocol, which ranks 15th, is up almost 20% in the last 24 hours.

Fantom, ranking at #19, was trading at $2.89 at the time of writing. It is up 19% in the last 24 hours. It is relentless as it corrects its previous pullback. It has been on a constant bull run since December 13, 2021, and analysts believe it will reclaim its ATH of $3 before the end of January.

Another winner is ATOM, the token of Cosmos. Its price today is just over $39 with a 24-hour trading volume of $2 billion. Its native token, ATOM, is up 10% in the last 24 hours.
