What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “In response to a 0.05% increase in U.S. wholesale inflation in April, Bitcoin has dropped below $62,000. Investors and traders are looking ahead to today’s Consumer Price Index report. The cryptocurrency now has support at $60,800 and resistance at $62,700. Market participants are paying close attention to this week’s economic data and its implications for interest rates.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “Trading around $61.8k, BTC (1.1%) was unable to sustain the gains from the day before and faced downward pressure in the last 24 hours. The overall crypto market is also down by 1.4%, with many attributing April’s higher-than-expected wholesale inflation data to this market performance. The market dip also triggered $144 million in liquidations in the last 24 hours, inclusive of $114 million in long liquidations. We can expect further volatility in the market, in anticipation of the U.S. CPI (Consumer Price Index) data. The CPI data that will be released today is expected to increase by 3.4% Y-o-Y in April, as compared to 3.5% in March.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin is trading at $61,500 with a 24-hour trading volume of $28.28 billion, down 2.25% over the last day. With a market cap of $1.21 trillion and a circulating supply of 19,698,325 BTC, the cryptocurrency has seen renewed interest in US spot bitcoin ETFs. After two days of outflows, there was a net inflow of $66 million on May 13, led by FBTC Fidelity with $38.6 million and Bitwise Bitcoin ETF BITB with $20.3 million. This influx suggests increased investor confidence in Bitcoin ETFs. Technically, Bitcoin price is slightly bullish around $61,450, with potential support at $60,185 and 50-day EMA resistance at $61,975.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap witnessed a minor dip and is currently at $2.26 trillion. Bitcoin and Ethereum witnessed marginal decline after US PPI inflation numbers were higher than expected. US Fed Chief Jerome Powell expressed that the possibility of inflation cooling down in 2024 is bleak as the prices rose quicker than expected in the first quarter. The markets are expected to remain choppy in the coming weeks as inflation data will keep the investors on their toes. However, Raoul Pal, a well-known financial sector figure, predicts a significant expansion of the cryptocurrency market, forecasting its market capitalization could reach $100 trillion.” 

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “In the last 24 hours, the crypto market experienced a decline, with BTC and ETH both dropping by more than 2%. Technically, BTC and ETH continue to exhibit choppy price action, remaining within a range and experiencing liquidations on both sides. Funding rates are neutral, and the overall price action is mixed, though both cryptocurrencies are currently at key support levels. Today’s US CPI numbers will be crucial to watch as they are expected to significantly impact the market.”
