Why Is Crypto Price Down Today
The crypto market is currently dependent on macroeconomic conditions for its price movement. The Fed’s hawkish stance is hampering the growth of any crypto asset. The Federal Reserve appears unanimous on its restrictive monetary policy. Yesterday’s Producer Price Index will definitely bolster that stance.
The PPI data released yesterday showed worse-than-expected inflation. The PPI came out to be at 8.5% YoY rather than the expected 8.4%. The Fed admitted that the inflation is taking much longer to soften than usual.
The market was saved by the fact that the core PPI, which excluded food and energy prices, came out at 7.2%, less than the forecasted 7.3%.
