Because it is important: Bitcoin, Ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies crashed over the weekend after a higher-than-expected inflation report on Friday.
The May Consumer Price Index increased 1% from a month earlier on a seasonally adjusted basis versus a consensus estimate of 0.7%. It rose 8.6% before adjustment in the last 12 months, above an estimated 8.2%, the steepest increase since December 1981.
On Friday, Edward Moyasenior market analyst at OANDA, had predicted the bloodbath as appetite for risky assets evaporated.
“A weekend crash of Bitcoin could see prices drop towards the $25,500 area, with $22,500 being the most extreme scenario. Weekend crypto crashes are sometimes followed by a quick recovery, but the current environment and soft interest may make recovery slow.”
Bitcoin’s Relative Strength Index stood at 33.29, while Ethereum’s was at 26.38 at press time, according to Trading View data. An RSI below 30 indicates “oversold” conditions.
cryptocurrency trader Michael van de Poppe noted that the RSI for BTC and ETH is significantly lower than it was in December 2018, but still most want to sell short.
