Cryptocurrency prices fell in the last 24 hours, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). The global crypto market capitalisation fell by 0.86 per cent to $923.8 billion, and the total crypto market volume decreased by 5.2 per cent to $66.3 billion in the last 24 hours, as of 4:05 pm IST, according to Coinmarketcap.com.
Crypto company CoinDCX said that “As the FED reconvenes on September 21, 2022, for the next FOMC meeting, markets are anticipating a 75bps-100bps to tame the most pressing national issue, i.e., raging inflation before the November midterm elections.”
“With the end of year federal rates fund target predicted to exceed 4%, the consensus is that a 75 bps rate hike would be neutral for markets. A 100 bps hike, which is the second-most likely scenario, would wreak havoc on equities and by extension cryptos owing to their high correlation and increased hawkish sentiment during times of uncertainty,” the CoinDCX Research Team said.
“Strategic prolonged quantitative tightening from the Fed to tame inflation has led to the DXY (US Dollar Index) gaining strength as investors flock to safe haven assets, such as the dollar, as evidenced by the inversion of the yield curve; usually a leading indicator of a recession,” it added.
