In November, Bitcoin (BTC) slumped to two-year lows. Meanwhile, after the collapse of crypto exchange FTX, the rest of the market experienced strong selling pressure. It was confirmed in late November that crypto lender BlockFi had declared bankruptcy following the FTX bankruptcy. In December, investors will be watching to see if the crypto ecosystem will yield more victims. However, investors will also follow the macro data.
November was bad for Bitcoin (BTC) and altcoins
The uncertainty surrounding the FTX crash and its potential consequences pushed BTC prices to a two-year low of $15,500 on November 22. Crypto company BlockFi filed for bankruptcy on November 28. However, despite this, crypto prices stabilized in the closing days of November. The speech of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that there would be a slowdown in the rate of increase in interest rates was also effective in this. Markets rated Powell as a dove. Thus, there was an influx of risk assets and prices started to recover.
cryptocoin.comAs you follow, Bitcoin closed November at the level of $ 17,000. The leading altcoin Ethereum (ETH), on the other hand, stabilized after falling below the $1,100 threshold. Accordingly, it ended November at $1,300. Over the past year, the crypto winter has wiped out nearly $2 trillion of market capitalization from the broader cryptocurrency market since its peak in November 2021. Since the start of the year, BTC and ETH have dropped about 65% respectively.
The market will follow this data
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell also noted that although it may seem like a pigeon, they still have a long way to go in terms of inflation. This situation seems to have escaped the attention of morale-seeking markets. Therefore, the data calendar is very important for the Fed’s next move. Most likely, data that signals that inflation will continue to decline will support the market. However, data showing that the rather stubborn inflation is still here will spoil the market. Therefore, the market will especially follow the US manufacturing data and the PPI data on Friday.
