Bitcoin Makes Surprise Climb As Fed Discloses 0.75 Point Rate Bump

Bitcoin

Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto market have been in a festive mood in response to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike, sending  both Bitcoin and Ethereum climbing in prices.

The Fed’s announcement has sent Bitcoin’s price up by 5%. As of this writing, Bitcoin is trading at $22,837, up 7 percent in the last 24 hours. More so, Ethereum’s price also spiked by 11.6%; hitting $1,550, data from Coingecko show, Thursday.

In fact, the entire crypto market is on a positive outlook with the total crypto market cap at $1 trillion.

Bitcoin was down the past week with its price plunging below $21,000. But, with Fed’s latest 0.75% rate bump, the BTC price has skyrocketed once again.

Fed Battling Inflation With Interest Rate Hikes

The Federal Reserve attempts to buffer inflation with a 0.75% rate increase. The central bank’s move on the rate hike is said to be in the country’s best interest especially since the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently broke it to the public that the Consumer Price Index or inflation rate is at 9.1% in June, a 40-year high.

The Fed’s continuing rate hikes have sent the negative message that the country could be in danger of a recession.

It triggered a domino effect. Following the Fed’s rate hike, the U.S. interest rates have also spiked at a range of 2.25% and 2.5% which is at extreme levels since the COVID-19 pandemic started. The U.S. central bank has recently revealed this development at the Federal Open Market Committee held Wednesday.

Survey: 96% Of Americans Worried About Inflation

The Fed has been trying to put a rein on the high prices with an increase in interest rates for the longest time. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics disclosed that the biggest factors adding up to the inflation rate are shelter, gasoline, and food price hikes.

Reportedly, a CNBC poll revealed that around 96% of Americans have been particularly worried or concerned lately regarding the gas, shelter, and food price increase.

To beat inflation, the Fed has the option to constrict the supply of money. So, it resorts to bumping the interest rates which in effect, makes loans expensive. The 0.75% rate hike was expected although it was earlier ruminated that the central bank may go for a 1% rate hike when inflation mellowed in June.

The recurring high prices and interest rate hikes have fueled fear in citizens as the danger of a recession continues to escalate. It has heightened levels of uncertainty in global markets especially because a recession would most likely happen following two straight quarterly GDP drops.

The GDP as presented by the Bureau of Economic Analysis has shown that the economy has dwindled by 1.6% as shown in the first financial quarter and economists are concerned that a decline is possible too for the second quarter.

GDP Q2 numbers will be announced tomorrow. And the White House has already prepared the public for this important announcement with an interview transcript and blog post by Janet Yellen, the Treasury Secretary who has set the records straight that two consecutive quarters is not indicative of a recession.

More so, U.S. President Biden made an assurance of sorts that the country is not going to face a recession.

Market Sentiment Shoots Up As Bitcoin Eyes $25,000

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Bitcoin

The crypto market sentiment had taken a beating when the price of bitcoin fell to a new cycle low of $17,600. With this, investor sentiment had plummeted to new yearly lows. But slowly, the market sentiment had recovered and made its way out of the extreme fear territory. That is until now when the market sentiment has recorded an enormous push upward off the back of another market rally.

Sentiment Turning Green

The crypto market sentiment has been on an uptrend since the recovery started back in July. When the price of bitcoin first hit $24,000 for the first time since the market trend, the market sentiment had quickly moved out of the extreme fear territory.

Despite the recovery in the market, the market sentiment was still mainly in the red, and the score on the Fear & Greed Index remained low. However, the Wednesday market recovery saw one of the largest jumps for the year 2022. After trending around 31 on the index for most of Wednesday, the score had seen a sharp upward reversal to 41.

This level puts the market sentiment the closest to greed that it has ever been since the crash. It is also a sharp contrast to the score for last week, as well as the overall score for the month of July, which put the market at a 16, deep in extreme fear.

The reversal also shows that investors are beginning to return to the market. Accumulation trends are usually started and strengthened during times such as this, contributing to the uptick in cryptocurrency prices all across the space.

Bitcoin Wants $25,000

Bitcoin’s recovery has been leading it towards one of the most coveted positions in the current market. The $25,000 mark is an important technical level because it was a position which high support that has now turned to a significant resistance point. As such, beating this level is important for bitcoin bulls going forward. 

The recent run-up had actually seen bitcoin come dangerously close to reaching $25,000, but the resistance just below it was enough to beat back the bulls. This saw a retracement of about $200 from this point as the bulls continued to regroup.

Bitcoin is still looking incredibly strong on the 4-hour chart, suggesting that there would be another test of $25,000. The accumulation trend going on has been enough to provide good support and bounce-off point for the digital asset, so this retest will likely see bitcoin break $25,000. Although holding the position is another story.

Bitcoin is now trending at $24,500 at the time of this writing. Currently, its price is up 6.29% in the last 24 hours and has remained green for the last two daily closes. A green close for Thursday will signal a top-off point of $28,000.

Ethereum Merge Scheduled For September 15/16, ETH’s Price Skyrockets

Ethereum Price

Ethereum is moving higher over today’s trading session and seems to be targeting previous levels about the $2,000 mark. The cryptocurrency soars as “The Merge” becomes imminent and backs the bullish sentiment across the market.

At the time of writing, ETH’s price trades at $1,900 with a 3% profit in the last 24 hours and a 17% profit over the past week. Ethereum is the best performing asset in the crypto top 10 by market cap recording bigger gains than Solana (14%), Polkadot (16%), and Bitcoin (7%).

The bullish momentum for Ethereum seems poised to extend. In a recent ETH core developers calls, “The Merge” mainnet release was tentatively scheduled for September 15 to 16 at epoch 144896.

This announcement comes at the heels of a successful implementation of “The Merge” on another main Ethereum testnet, Goerli. Called the final “dress rehearsal” for this major upcoming event that will combine Ethereum’s execution layer with its consensus layer.

In other words, Ethereum will finally complete its transition from a Proof-of-Work consensus to a Proof-of-Stake. This process will provide the blockchain will better performance, much lower transaction fees, scalability, and less energy consumption.

The potential for “The Merge” to attract new users and capital into the Ethereum ecosystem is one of the reasons why it’s perceived as bullish by the market. Data from Material Indicators (MI) indicates that almost every investor class has been buying into ETH’s price current price action.

This buying pressure is trending upwards and appears to be picking up momentum, over the past 12 hours as news about the tentative date for the mainnet release broke.

Further data from Material Indicators records important ask liquidity above ETH’s price current levels. There are over $40 million in selling orders stack from $1,920 to $2,000. These orders will operate as critical resistance.

What “The Merge” Could Spell For The Price Of Ethereum

If Ethereum is able to break above those levels, the orderbook record almost no resistance to the upside. Thus, ETH’s price could reclaim previously lost territory and extend its climb.

However, MI records low buying pressure for ETH’s price on higher timeframes from large investors. Over the past two months, retail investors appear to be jumping into Ethereum’s price action.

Additional data provided by Jarvis Labs coincides that retail investors having been accumulating ETH. Larger investors need to begin accumulating to provide ETH’s price with an extended trend.

Jarvis Labs believes that this sustainable bullish price action might only be triggered if Bitcoin picks up momentum and follows the bullish trend. The price of the number one cryptocurrency has also been supported mainly by retail, but the research “would like to see a Q4 2020 repeat”.

At that time, retail was buying BTC and ETH and in Q4, whales took over and prices were able to reach new highs.
