What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin rose above the $66,000 level in the past 24 hours following softer-than-expected US inflation data. This has increased investor sentiment expecting potential rate cuts. The surge indicates that bulls have absorbed the supply. If bulls can sustain above the current level, the next resistance is set at the $67,100 and the support lies at the $65,800. On the other hand, Ethereum has also surged above the $3,000 level. Overall, there is a positive sentiment in the market with a rise in global market cap by 6% over the past day.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “BTC had a massive green day yesterday, registering the highest one-day gains after almost two months. This spike was primarily due to the trigger from the US CPI data as the inflation numbers though came as expected, but were lower last time and fueled expectations in the eyes of the participants that an early Fed Rate Cut might be more probable now than before. One of the biggest gainers in the top 100 remained Fantom’s FTM as the layer 1 blockchain’s sonic upgrade came closer to their claims to improve their transaction speeds by a factor of 10. The network will remain an EVM compatible chain, competing with the likes of AVAX now.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “Bitcoin (BTC) surged 7.54% in 24 hours, hitting over $65,000 as favourable US inflation data buoyed investor sentiment. Peaking at $66,442.31, BTC marked an 8.3% climb, its highest since April 24. The rally reflects renewed confidence in the crypto amid macroeconomic indicators. Altcoins are on an upward trend following Bitcoin’s surge. Optimism prevails as ETF inflow data promises market clarity soon. TRX trades at $0.125, nearing the $0.127 resistance. A breach could drive it to $0.13, then $0.144. Conversely, a dip below $0.121 may lead to $0.116. Whales amassed over $160 million TRX last month, boosting reserves to year-high levels. $142 million TRX awaits gains in the $0.123-$0.127 range, potentially alleviating selling pressure as investors eye higher profits.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The latest CPI data showed that inflation in April showed signs of cooling down. The news had an immediate impact on financial markets including digital assets with Bitcoin surging to the $66,000 mark. The current rally has opened the doors for a larger crypto rally with the possibility of BTC touching the $84,000 mark, as per Swissblock. Bitcoin broke the downward trend and broke the immediate resistance level of $65,000, signalling a larger rally in the coming weeks across digital assets.” 

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin rose 7.50% to $66,350 after the release of US inflation data. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.3% in April, suggesting cooling inflation and increasing expectations of a possible Federal Reserve interest rate cut in September. This dovish outlook has weakened the dollar and strengthened bitcoin as investors seek alternative assets. Technically, Bitcoin has broken out of the symmetrical triangle at $63,300, showing bullish momentum. However, the overbought RSI and candlestick patterns like the Doji around $66,200 indicate possible market indecisiveness. Key levels to watch are support at $65,150 and $63,300, with resistance at $67,300 and $68,545. A break below $65,150 could trigger a bearish correction.”

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “In the last 24 hours, the crypto market saw a huge upside move as U.S. CPI came in lower than expected. BTC reached $66,000 and ETH $3,000, with alts jumping by 10-20%. Bitcoin dominance also continued to rise, indicating that BTC is leading the market share. Technically, this is a relief after many days of choppy price action and sideways movement. BTC now needs to hold this level and continue upwards towards the range high at $73,000.”
