Crypto stabilises at cosy height

Bitcoin is currently trading around $23.0K. Spikes to $23.7K and down to $22.5K leave their mark on the chart but do not move the balance of the market.

Interestingly, this oscillation occurs with a rising equity market in the background and a moderately weaker dollar, although this environment often fuels demand for risk.

This buyer passivity may be a consequence of fatigue after the 44% rally since the beginning of the year, but it may also reflect an internal pull to sell on the upside. This applies to the crypto market, whose capitalization has stabilized at just over $1 million.

It is worth being prepared that there may be no major moves until the Fed’s decision next Wednesday.
