What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “The past 24 hours remained volatile in the crypto market. Most cryptocurrencies underwent correction following the US economic data. Bitcoin declined to $22,800 after reaching the $23,000 level following Tesla’s earning report. BTC’s support now lies at $22,900, while the resistance is at $23,000. Similarly, Ethereum reached above $1,600 in the early hours of Thursday but has since dropped to around $1,500. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum were unable to maintain their upward momentum. The support for ETH now lies at $1,450 and resistance at $1,667 and $1,775.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin is currently worth $23,072 with a 24-hour trading volume of $40 billion. It is facing resistance at $23,250 and could rise to $23,900 or $25,150, but if the support level at $22,325 is broken, a drop to $21,500 or $20,450 is possible.”
Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “The release of US GDP numbers, which came in at 2.9 percent as opposed to the expected 2.6 percent, resulted in a slight upward movement in the cryptocurrency market. However, this rally was short-lived as the market was already showing signs of strength, and a retracement near the weekend was anticipated. The release of Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) data today, along with many other data releases this week, is expected to create a highly volatile market environment leading up to the next scheduled Federal Reserve interest rate hike next week.”
