Why crypto market is falling
“An on-going sell-off was seen over the weekend, as BTC traded near the $27,000 level. The crypto Fear and Greed Index still showed a sentiment of ‘extreme fear’; this indicated that most investors were still extremely bearish,” Darshan Bathija, CEO and Co-Founder of crypto exchange Vauld said.
“The recent inflation numbers (consumer price index) seen in the US has had a negative effect on most markets. Most investors will be keenly looking at the U.S. Federal Open Market Committee meeting slated for June 14 and 15th. An interest hike by the Fed is already priced in; however most investors worry that unless inflation numbers start dropping soon, the Fed will likely have to tighten reigns at a faster pace than anticipated,” he added.
