Daily Crypto Market Analysis - Growing and ForecastIn the last 24 hours, the long liquidations were 13.11M USDT and the short liquidations were 99.09M USDT, leaving 85.98M USDT worth of net short liquidations. The liquidation increased significantly to more than 100M, which was quite unusual nowadays. If the number wouldn’t drop by a large extent, the investors’ interest would increase continuously.
The Fear & Greed index climbed to 29, still below 30. The number has been around 25 most of the time in the last 4 months, but the number has been near 28 in the last 30 days, showing that the investors’ confidence is yet to be recovered. But on the other hand, the market has been relatively stable, instead of slipping further.
Bitcoin Ahr999 climbed to 0.33, below the bottom line 0.45 and the DCA line 1.2. The numbers reflected that the bear market would last for a long time. Judging from the information above, the prices were still at the bottom zone.
In the last trading day, the 3 major US stock indexes all rose. DJI was up by 0.40%. S&P 500 was the strongest, up by 0.75%. And the NASDAQ was up by 0.69%. The two mainstream cryptos, BTC and ETH, were up by 0.68% and 2.20%.
According to the monthly JOLTS published by the US Department of Labor on Wednesday, the job vacancy of last November was 10.458 million, still higher than the market expectation. Also, the ISM’s survey of the PMI revealed that the Employment Cost Index was the highest of the last eight months, which was a sign for a strong employment market. It’s possible that the Fed would apply austerity policy in the next few months.
In terms of politics and economy, the meeting minutes of last December published on Wednesday by the US Fed pointed that no one in the organization considered it suitable to lower the interest rate at the beginning of 2023. They also warned that the unreasonable relax of the financial circumstance would weaken the American central bank’s effort to stabilize the price. Also, more evidence was required to prove that the inflation had been going down continuously.
Neel Kashkari from the Fed announced on Wednesday that “the Fed would only consider lowering the interest rate when the inflation rate was down to 2%. Continuously rising interest rate would be appropriate for at least the next few sessions, until we were confident that the inflation would spike to the top. Currently, more and more evidence showed that might already happened.”
Yesterday, most mainstream cryptos rose, changing from -4.62% to 4.63%. The SOL was the weakest, down by 4.62%, because the price dropped after having increased in the last few days. The ADA went up by 4.63%. The BTC and ETH were up by 0.68% and 2.20% separately.
Judging from the 4-hour timeline, the BTC price rose several times to near 17000, though the price fell back in correction near 16850. But the MA7 is now higher than the MA99 and the MA25 will probably rise tomorrow. The result is that the three moving averages will be a sign of rising prices. Despite the fact that the long side has shown the willingness to dominate the market, but the rising tendency is unclear yet.
