Altcoins have failed to keep pace with the market leader. The price of Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Chainlink (LINK) and Cardano (ADA) are down anywhere between 0.1% to 1.0%, as of press time.

Investors in the traditional markets are still holding on to hope that a stimulus deal will be reached in the United States before the country’s presidential election next month. Cryptocurrency investors will likely be keeping a close eye on any major developments on Wall Street.
