Edul Patel, the CEO and Co-Founder of Mudrex, told ABP Live, “Most cryptocurrencies rose in the past 24 hours, reacting favourably to the US central bank raising the interest rates. Bitcoin has been trading sideways between its support level at $19,000 and resistance at $25,000 since the start of the month. Because of the low volume, BTC trading is unable to break any of these levels. But, if BTC can break through the $23,000 level, it might run towards its resistance level. On the other hand, even though the second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, fell below the $1,600 mark, it soon recovered, indicating the buying strength on Wednesday.”

Commenting on the crypto market scenario, Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and Co-Founder of Unocoin told ABP Live, “The downward streak of falling crypto prices got broken once the news about Feds increasing the interest rate by 0.75 percent got out on Wednesday evening. Instantly the prices of crypto saw an increase by up to 8 percent and more or less the increase continued to sustain for the rest of the day. The same gained support by equity markets increasing by the same percentage as well. Supporting and native blockchain tokens saw even more recovery of up to 12 percent and 16 percent, respectively.”

FiEx Founder and CEO Tushar Gandotra told ABP Live, “Market sentiment for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has been improving, with institutional investors optimistic about a market recovery as inflows into crypto markets climb, with roughly $16 million going into Bitcoin alone over the previous week. The triangle formation is being retested by the trend for Bitcoin on a daily time frame at the breakout levels. B

TC’s immediate support level is anticipated to be $19,000, while the next significant resistance level is anticipated to be $32,300. In recent days, Ethereum (ETH) has lost ground to Bitcoin as the global cryptocurrency markets saw a small correction. As another slump is anticipated following a bounce-off from the pattern resistance level, the daily chart for ETH-BTC is still moving through a falling triangle pattern with lower highs. At 0.049, the next significant support for ETH-BTC is anticipated.”
