What are crypto exchanges saying about the current market scenario?

“Bitcoin has fallen below $62,000 in response to a 0.05% increase in US wholesale inflation in April,” Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live. Investors and traders are awaiting today's Consumer Price Index report. The cryptocurrency now has support at $60,800 and resistance at $62,700. Market participants are paying close attention to this week's economic data and its impact on interest rates.

CoinSwitch Markets Desk notes, “Trading around $61.8k, BTC (1.1%) was unable to maintain gains from a day earlier and faced downward pressure over the past 24 hours. The overall crypto market also declined by 1.4%, with many attributing this market performance to higher-than-expected April wholesale inflation data. The market decline led to $144 million in liquidations in the last 24 hours, including long-term liquidations of $114 million. In anticipation of US CPI (Consumer Price Index) data, we can expect further volatility in the market. CPI data to be released today is expected to show growth of 3.4% year-on-year in April, compared to 3.5% in March.'

Satvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin is trading at $61,500 with a 24-hour trading volume of $28.28 billion, down 2.25% from the previous day. With a market cap of $1.21 trillion and a circulating supply of 19,698,325 BTC, the cryptocurrency has seen renewed interest in the US Spot Bitcoin ETF. After two days of outflows, net inflows of $66 million occurred on May 13, led by FBTC Fidelity with $38.6 million and Bitwise Bitcoin ETF BITB with $20.3 million. This inflow indicates increased investor confidence in Bitcoin ETFs. Technically, Bitcoin price is slightly bullish around $61,450, with potential support at $60,185 and 50-day EMA resistance at $61,975.

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The total crypto market cap saw a slight decline and currently stands at $2.26 trillion. Bitcoin and Ethereum saw slight losses after US PPI inflation numbers came in higher than expected. US Fed chief Jerome Powell expressed that inflation is less likely to ease in 2024 as prices rose faster than expected in the first quarter. Markets are expected to remain volatile in the coming weeks as inflation data will keep investors worried. However, Raoul Pal, a well-known figure in the financial sector, predicts a significant expansion of the cryptocurrency market, estimating that its market capitalization could reach $100 trillion.

“Over the past 24 hours, the crypto market experienced a downtrend, with both BTC and ETH falling by more than 2%,” the CoinDCX research team told ABP Live. Technically, BTC and ETH continue to exhibit volatile price action, staying within a range and experiencing liquidations on both sides. Funding rates are neutral, and the overall price action is mixed, although both cryptocurrencies are currently at key support levels. It will be important to keep an eye on today's US CPI numbers as they are expected to have a significant impact on the market.
