What Crypto Exchanges Say About the Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live: “Bitcoin experienced a drop below the $43,000 threshold following the US Federal Reserve's decision to hold interest rates on hold, driven by investors' expectations of a possible rate cut in March. Despite a brief surge, Bitcoin failed to maintain the momentum. Despite the bears' attempts to push the price down, the bulls defended the territory above $42,000. Ethereum is trading in line with Bitcoin, and there is a chance that it will range between $2,100 and $2,400 in the near future.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted: “Bitcoin is heading for a third consecutive red day, trading near the $42,000 mark even as the US Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged, exactly in line with market expectations. However, after yesterday's comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell, several big analysts such as Goldman Sachs are now predicting that the Fed will begin cutting rates from May of this year instead of March, which could be one of the main reasons why the bears have taken some control on shorter time frames. . However, on broader time frames, the BTC structure remains bullish and the current trendline supports remain at $39.3K.”

Rajagopal Menon, vice president of WazirX, said: “The Federal Reserve's decision to hold interest rates on hold thwarted expectations of cuts, affecting the valuation of Bitcoin, which could now encounter resistance at $40,000. The next hurdle for Bitcoin lies at $40,000 before a possible easing of selling pressure. An increase in demand, driven by reduced supply through access to BTC ETFs, could be the next catalyst. Currently, Bitcoin has recorded a drop of 2.25% in the last 24 hours, settling at $41,998.72, with a gain of 4.79% over the past week. Ethereum is trading at $2,257.09, reflecting a 3.59% drop over 24 hours but a 1.06% increase over the week. Bitcoin technical indicators present a mixed outlook. The moving averages signal a "buy", while the Ichimoku baseline remains neutral. The RSI at 49 suggests a neutral stance, with the %K Stochastic at 75 and the ADX at 16 reflecting neutrality. The MACD at -173 indicates a “buy”, while the Stochastic RSI and William Percentage suggest a neutral outlook.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said: “Bitcoin’s recent drop below $43,000 came following a hawkish stance from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, suggesting that a rate cut is unlikely. types in March. This stance prompted a market reassessment, reducing the likelihood of an imminent rate cut. However, the broader economic environment favors Bitcoin in 2024 with expectations of a possible rate cut from the Fed, which traditionally boosts cryptocurrencies. Amid short-term fluctuations, investor confidence persists, supported by several optimistic factors. The emergence of spot bitcoin ETFs, along with massive demand for new offerings from BlackRock and Fidelity, is easing selling pressures. Furthermore, expectations surrounding the Bitcoin halving in April and possible supportive political and fiscal dynamics from the United States add to the bullish outlook. “Despite near-term uncertainty, Bitcoin’s price trajectory is primed for a potential rally to $50,000, countering the prospect of a drop to $30,000 in the foreseeable future.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, noted: "The cryptocurrency market saw a fresh decline due to unchanged interest rates by the Federal Reserve. The bullish momentum marked by declining Grayscale sales and the Increased BTC ETF offerings eventually led to a downtrend caused by unchanged interest levels representing 2023 highs. The Altcoin market also suffered a slowdown that could change unless Ethereum surpasses $ 2500 amid other positive macroeconomic factors.”

The CoinDCX research team told ABP Live: “Over the past 24 hours, the cryptocurrency market experienced a shift from positive to slightly bearish conditions, triggered by the Federal Reserve's decision to keep interest rates unchanged. BTC, positioned within its range, is currently in the middle, with BTC's increasing dominance causing declines in most altcoins. ETH reflects a parallel situation, trading within its established range. Additionally, market sentiment is influenced by the regular movement of funds through ETFs, which contributes to the overall market dynamics.”
