Following the meeting of the Federal Committee on the Free Market, the chairman of the Fed, Jerome Powellhas taken a more dovish stance on future rate hikes, according to CNBC.

“As monetary policy tightens further, it may be wise to slow growth as we assess how our aggregate adjustments impact the economy and inflation.”

Powell drew attention to the possibility of a recession in the US economy and said that although growth was negative in the first quarter, it should be slightly positive in the second.

Edward Moyaa senior market analyst at OANDA, noted that Powell does not rule out another 75 basis point rate hike at the next Fed meeting, but that the rate of increase is expected to slow at some point.

“There will be no clear green light to buy risky assets until we have evidence that inflation is falling. Inflationary risks will remain elevated as energy shortages are likely, supply chain problems will not ease given the deteriorating global outlook, and the pandemic outlook remains worrisome,” the expert commented.

Regarding cryptocurrencies, Moya stated: “The FOMC decision raised optimism that the monetary tightening has ended, which caused a good rise in risk assets, which helped lift cryptocurrencies.”

“Given the dominance of technology stocks, it is not surprising that the cryptocurrency has stabilized. Digital token trading could move here as a surge in returns appears to be materializing.”

Cryptocurrencies continue to follow risky assets like stocks. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq rose 2.6% and 4.1% respectively on Wednesday after the rate hike was announced.

Nick HillHead of Business Consulting at a UK-based digital asset brokerage firm. GlobalBlockexplained that the fact that Bitcoin follows risky assets such as tech stocks is not a systematic case, adding that it is difficult to predict when this correlation will end.

“It will be difficult to predict when this reversal [la baisse des prix du BTC] will happen, maybe in late 2022, early 2023 or earlier? A complex combination of economic factors will make market timing of any reversal or even decoupling of broader risk asset performance a difficult decision for investors! »

Michael van de Poppe tweeted three perfect ingredients for a “summer relief rally”.

A crypto trader sees Ethereum at $2,400 and Bitcoin between $28,000-$30,000.

Meanwhile, data from Glassnode indicates that the price of BTC has exceeded the strike price — a reference to the value of all tokens at the price they were bought for, divided by the number of coins in circulation.
