What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “In the past 24 hours, Bitcoin remained consolidated after the release of the third quarter GDP data from the US. The price of BTC has been fluctuating within the range of $16,500 to $17,000. For the market to experience an upward trend, it is essential for BTC to maintain its key level above the current level. However, if the price falls below $16,500, it is possible that bearish sentiment may return to the market.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The BTC/USD pair have experienced a small dip recently, it has since recovered to the $16,700 mark. This just shows the resilience of Bitcoin and its ability to bounce back from any setbacks and Bitcoin is now above $16,800 which may indicate a bearish trend if the closing prices fall below this level. On the other hand, the immediate support level is at $16,250 or $16,100, and if this level is broken in a bearish manner, it can potentially lead to a decline in the price.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “The global crypto market saw a 13 percent gain in trading volume over the past 24 hours. The market cap, though in the green, managed to stay largely stable with key cryptocurrencies holding ground. Dogecoin and Cardano managed to gain by 5 percent and 3 percent, respectively, over the last day. With higher volumes, investors have resumed making transactions which are strengthening the market.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The evolving Covid situation in certain geographies is already showing its impact on the traditional stock markets but the crypto market is still insulated from the new covid variant threat. The overall crypto market continues to remain calm with insignificant price movement. Investors will be in wait-and-watch mode as they brace for the next potential Covid-induced slowdown in the economy.”
