However, experts believe that the crypto rally may not last for long. Michael van de Poppe, the CEO of Eight Global and crypto analyst, believes that the US dollar is set for a rally. As a result, the crypto market can see a slight correction.
US unemployment data will also be released on Friday. Michael Poppe believes that the data might be bad and have a bad effect on the market.
Despite today’s rally, the crypto market is still showing bearish sentiments. The Federal Reserve remains hawkish despite global recessionary fears. The United Nations has asked global economies to pivot from their aggressive stance. However, it remains unlikely that the American central bank will comply.
The Fed’s stance will become clearer as Atlanta Fed’s president Raphael Bostic will deliver a key speech on Wednesday. Chicago’s Charles Evans and Cleveland’s Loretta Mester will speak on Thursday.
Oil prices will create additional uncertainty in an already unfavorable macroeconomic environment. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries is mulling over the biggest supply cut since 2020 to raise prices. The OPEC+ will meet on Wednesday to formalize the decision.
What Will The Fed Decide
The crypto market is still strongly correlated with the broader general market. Therefore, macroeconomic conditions will still dictate the price movement.
