Crypto Market Daily Highlights – BTC and BNB Buck the Top Ten Trend


Key Insights:

  • It was a mixed Thursday for the crypto top ten. Bitcoin (BTC) and binance coin (BNB) bucked the top ten trend with modest gains.
  • The US CPI report delivered a choppy afternoon session, with the broader crypto market tumbling deep into the red before a late recovery.
  • The crypto market cap rose by $2.0 billion to $887.1 billion.

It was a mixed Thursday session for the crypto top ten. BTC and BNB bucked the top ten trend, while SOL and XRP led the way down. Notably, BTC fell short of $20,000 for a sixth consecutive session while falling to an October low of $18,161.

US economic indicators delivered market volatility on Thursday. The US CPI report sent the crypto market deep into negative territory. However, a NASDAQ rally provided much-needed support throughout the US session.

The US annual inflation rate softened from 8.3% to 8.2% in September, raising bets of 75-basis point rate hikes in November and December.

In response to the CPI report, the probability of a 75-basis point rate hike in November increased from 84.5% to 96.3%. Significantly, the chances of a 75-basis point Fed rate hike in December jumped from 28.6% to 71.5%.

Market reaction to the CPI number and the FedWatch Tool’s interest rate predictions suggest that investors are willing to accept front loading until the end of the year. On Thursday, the NASDAQ 100 rallied by 2.23%, while the NASDAQ Mini was down 24 points this morning.

Economic indicators will continue to draw interest throughout today’s session. Trade data from China and US retail sales and consumer sentiment numbers will influence.
