Perhaps a silver lining has appeared for crypto investors – including those trading with eToro. Bitcoin and other major crypto tokens rebounded sharply on Thursday. They were marching in line with the equity markets, after the rate hike outcome of the US Federal Reserve.

The Fed on Wednesday raised interest rates by 75 basis points or three-quarters of a percentage point. It is the biggest rate hike in 28 years, part of an ongoing effort to bring down soaring inflation.

cryptocurrency bounces back

Barring the dollar-pegged USD Coin, the majority of the crypto tokens were trading with solid gains on Thursday. Solana zoomed about 18 per cent, whereas Tron rallied 15 per cent. Avalanche and Polkadot gained 10% and 12%, respectively.

The global cryptocurrency market cap moved up to the $961 billion mark, rising about 3% in the last 24 hours. However, the total cryptocurrency trading volume rallied about 26 per cent to $127.41 billion.

Coinbase Lunch In India

When it launched in India with much fanfare two months ago, US crypto exchange Coinbase said it planned to triple its workforce in the country. Instead, it has now laid off about 8 percent of its employees in India, or about one in 12.

It isn’t surprising when you consider Coinbase’s share price is down an eye-popping 80% since the start of the year. This eventually makes Bitcoin’s 54% drop look like a minor blip.

Some Technical Analysis

In hopes of dampening inflation, the US Federal Reserve hiked benchmark interest rate, igniting fears of broader global ramifications, said CoinDCX Research Team.

Noting some recovery from the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin eased from an 18-month low as altcoins rallied and the crypto market stabilized after a tumultuous week, it added. “Despite the bearish market, the slight recovery is evidence of continued optimism of the long-term value of digital assets.”

Tech View by Giottus Crypto Platform

After dipping to an intra-day low of $1,025 yesterday, Ethereum is trading at $1,240, up 3.5%. However, it is down by 31% in the last seven days. Though it has lost almost 75% of its November 2021 all-time high, it is starting to show some signs of respite.

ETH successfully tested the long-term trendline support several times in the past month. It slid below the trendline support of $1,600, after several failed attempts to break past the short-term resistance around the $1,900 mark.

In order to gather further momentum, ETH needs to test psychological resistance at the $1,350 mark and reclaim .236 fib retracement at $1,600. ETH’s support level is forming at $1,009. Any movement below it may cause the coin to slide further into the three-digit territory.
