US inflation pressure lowers Bitcoin price
According to the data, Bitcoin (BTC) fell below $28,000 and hit $27,400 during the day. The USD/BTC pair fell on June 10 in line with the equity markets. US stocks ended the week with a marked decline. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite lost 2.9 percent and 3.5 percent, respectively. Contrary to expectations, this decline came after high inflation data from the USA, where the worst was seen. AmkNews.com As we also reported, annual inflation with 8.6 percent reached its highest level since December 1981.
Reacting market commentators were firmly on the bearish side when it came to future BTC price action. Popular Twitter account Crypto Tony told his followers, “When we hit $22,000 – $24,000 in Bitcoin, they will drop even more. When the time comes, don’t be too greedy.”
Are we now in the same situation as in March 2020?
Meanwhile, Filbfilb, co-founder of trade package Decentrader, compared the current environment to the March 2020 COVID-19 crash. He argued that this year’s slow decline is more painful than what was seen in March 2020, which briefly plunged Bitcoin to $3,600. MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor gave a more hopeful comment after the data press. “Inflation has not peaked and neither has Bitcoin risen,” he said. The popular Twitter account PlanC used the following statements:
In the current macro environment, it doesn’t matter how many charts converge to show that we’ve reached historically oversold levels. As long as Bitcoin remains associated with risky assets, I don’t see any major trend reversal any time soon.
Meanwhile, if BTC ends the week at current levels or below $29,450; BTC/USD is in danger of hitting its lowest weekly close since December 2020.
Doubts over rate hike rise
Looking to the future, the decisions to be taken regarding rate hikes in response to inflation are set to be the main focus of the coming week. Federal Open Markets Committee (FOMC) minutes for the Fed’s June 14-15 meeting will provide clues as to how aggressive policymakers plan to be when it comes to curbing price increases. “I think at some point the market will realize that inflation isn’t going down anytime soon and rates will still be relatively low,” Twitter account Daan Crypto Trades said. He added that gold could provide an early indicator of this “new old” trend by rising from the current trading channel.
Gold could be the leading factor in such a shift. I’m watching this closely. Currently, we are still in the process of living with bad factors.
