What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin and Ethereum started the week trading lower on Monday as markets await U.S inflation data which is due on Thursday. BTC and ETH fell by 2 percent and 3 percent in the past 24 hours. The sellers are trying to strengthen their positions by pulling the price below the uptrend line. If they manage to do it, we might see BTC drop to $18,125 and then to $17,622 support levels. Ethereum is down by over 65 percent year-to-date. If ETH dips below the current level, the selling could intensify, dropping to the support line. The next resistance of ETH would be at the $1,350 level. However, if bears take over a pullback, we might also see ETH trade lower at the $1,200 level.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The cryptocurrency market was slightly bearish during the early European session, with global cryptocurrency market capitalisation falling from $944 billion to $936 billion. Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, is still trading near $19,349.19, down 0.88 percent so far. Similarly, Ethereum is trading sideways with a price range of $1,325 to $1,298. However, some altcoins are trading heavily bullish, such as TerraClassicUSD, which is up more than 35 percent in the last 24 hours. At the same time, the Huobi token is up 20 percent and is trading at $4.97. Maker is also in the spotlight as it made more than 17 percent weekly gain.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “Tuesday was in the reds for cryptocurrencies as the market cap fell by 3 percent during Asia trading hours to reach closer to $910 billion. Ethereum lost its position and is currently trading below $1,300 after a 4 percent loss in 24 hours. Meme coins also displayed a similar bearish sentiment. This comes as the market awaits the minutes from the US Federal Reserve’s September meeting which could indicate another increase in interest rates along with the consumer price data.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market fell by 2.71 percent and is currently hovering around the $919-billion mark. The world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, fell by 1.97 percent and exchanged hands at $19,061 whereas Ether was trading at the $1,279 level after it shed 3.29 percent from its value in the last 24 hours. The market will continue to remain choppy as crucial inflation data is expected this week and there is a high possibility that the Fed will continue its hawkish stance with tight monetary policy to control high prices in the world’s biggest economy.”
