Why Is The Crypto Market Up Today?
Today’s positive crypto market performance is primarily due to the favorable cues from major US indices in the overnight trading on Wall Street. The U.S. stocks closed higher yesterday, where the tech-dominated Nasdaq Composite Index finished 1.13% higher, the S&P 500 Index gained 0.75%, ending its 5-day losing streak, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.55%.
The gains were supported by an increase in jobless claims on Thursday, a relaxing indicator for the economy backing the view the Fed may reduce the speed and size of interest rate hikes.
Economists opine that low unemployment can indicate that people are spending more, resulting in an increase in prices. With unemployment rising, it is likely that prices will go up— suggesting that inflation will be cooling down.
How Interest Rates Impact The Mood of Crypto Investors?
The digital assets track what the U.S. stock market does. This suggests that when the U.S. central bank raised interest rates to tackle inflation, investors were seen getting rid of risky assets like equities and Bitcoin.
