However, despite the change in investor sentiment, many mid-cap altcoins, which we are describing as coins with market capitalizations between $100 million and $500 million, have lagged behind the larger market over the last week. If a new bull run is truly in the works, this might result in a significant rotation of capital from the top-20 coins into underperforming, mid-cap altcoins.
This thesis is supported by Luke Martin, a well-regarded technical crypto market analyst, who recently publicly stated that he is rotating his exposure of major altcoins, including ADA and TRX, into coins like ICON (ICX).
I think mid caps can catch up and outpace majors this week. Moved into two new plays with $ICX and another I can't say because I don't want it to pump ?

Moving forward, investors should watch both the price action of coins like XRP and TRX, as well as the volumes of mid-cap altcoins, to determine which coins are likely to run next.
