Crypto Review

Crypto is awaiting a signal to choose its direction

Market picture

The crypto market capitalisation has seen little change over the past 24 hours, stabilising around $1.165 trillion. The Fear and Greed Index is also little changed at 54 since the middle of last week. The market has been waiting for new signals, equally ready to return to growth or continue to fall.

The most fluctuation in Bitcoin over the last week and a half has been around $29.2K. And this is interesting because during this time, the dollar has gone into a growth mode, and there has been significant profit-taking in the equity market. It’s unlikely that investors’ caution in Bitcoin is due to expectations of the US jobs report.

A drop below $28.8K could quickly take the market to $28K or even $27K. A rise above $29.5K would open a quick path to $30K and on to $31K.
