“The disinflationary process, the process of getting inflation down, has begun and it’s begun in the goods sector, which is about a quarter of our economy,” said Powell. “But it has a long way to go. These are the very early stages,” Powell said.
Powell made similar comments on inflation last Wednesday when he announced the Fed was raising interest rates by 25 basis points.
Analyst Notes: “Bitcoin went on a Fed Chair Powell rollercoaster ride and was able to hold onto recent lows. Bitcoin could see further bullish momentum if we see signs that the labor market is cooling and as long we don’t have a much hotter-than-expected inflation report next week. Bitcoin has massive support at $20,500 and resistance at $25,000,” said Edward Moya, senior analyst at OANDA, in a note seen by Benzinga.
Crypto analyst Michaël van de Poppe said apparently, the bull appears to have returned. He suggested purchasing dips, and taking pleasure in altcoins and the markets.
For crypto analyst Kaleo, $30,000 is still a magnet for the apex crypto. “Every little bit of chop in this range is just noise.”
