What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin is currently trading around $65,000. BTC is consolidating its gains with some participants booking profits and may take some time before attempting another rise. The first major resistance levels are at $66,000 and $67,000. If the bulls remain active today, the price could increase over the weekend. The support lies at $65,150.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Head, CoinSwitch Ventures, said, “In the last 24 hours, the crypto market traded sideways and consolidated in a tight range. This happened despite the U.S. Senate voting against the SEC accounting rule. However, President Joe Biden has suggested vetoing the resolution. Trading around $65.4k and $2.9k, BTC and ETH are down by 0.8% and 1.9% respectively. While the broader market is in the red, a clear outlier amidst the leading cryptos is LINK (+13.6%). The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) in the U.S., along with Chainlink and major US banks, completed a successful pilot to accelerate the tokenisation of funds. This collaboration is a step further towards the adoption of blockchain technology in the traditional asset management sector.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “In the last 24 hours, Bitcoin (BTC) surged to $66,750 but is now trading at $65,408, down 0.82%. This rise saw an increase in liquidations. Bitcoin’s recent bullish breakout suggests potential for continued gains. Despite a possible pullback, the outlook remains positive, with new record highs anticipated. Ethereum recently surpassed its 20-day EMA but is struggling due to Bitcoin’s volatility. Social sentiment for ETH is positive but just above neutral. The Elder-Ray Index indicates a buyer’s market. ETH trades within a descending triangle, signalling potential bearish trends. A significant drop might occur at $2,864. Breaking the upper trend line could target $3,100. Next week’s SEC decision on ETH ETFs is crucial.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The CPI data released recently showed the inflation showing signs of cooling down. The financial markets are buoyant with the buzz around the possibility of a rate cut by the US fed if inflation continues to slow down. The crypto market reacted immediately as BTC touched the $66,000 mark while ETH is hovering around the $3,000 mark. As per the media reports, India’s market regulator SEBI also suggested crypto trade oversight which brings us a step closer to regulated crypto trading in one of the major digital asset markets in the world.” 

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “The overall crypto market is stable now, with BTC showing good momentum post-CPI. However, the ETH/BTC pair continues to drop, causing ETH to lag behind BTC, while alts are trading mixed. Technically, BTC faces a short-term hurdle at $66,670. Clearing this level could lead to a continued upside move. The major support is at $60,850, and BTC should maintain its position above this level. ETH, although bullish, is weaker compared to BTC. Key support for ETH is at $2,875, and resistance is at $3,040.”
