Bitcoin (BTC) Pumps on FED News and CPI Data


  1. BTC price pump due to FED news and upcoming CPI data.
  2. Bulls in BTC push price to $17,912.52 in the last 24-hours.
  3. BTC meets resistance at $17,916.59 and support at $16,966.59.

Bitcoin prices are holding steady above $17,000 ahead of the release of the latest report on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the United States on Tuesday and the interest rate decision by the Federal Reserve in the United States on Wednesday. A decrease in implied volatility for bitcoin has also been observed in recent weeks.

The Consumer Price Index for October came in at 7.7%, which was lower than the 8% that was expected on November 10. This was unable to influence crypto prices due to the FTX liquidity issues. On November 11, FTX and more than 130 related companies, including Alameda Research, submitted their Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions.

The data for the US Consumer Price Index for the month of November will be released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States. It is anticipated that the rate of inflation will decrease for the fifth consecutive month to 7.3% in November, which is a decrease from the rate of 7.7% seen in October. It will be the lowest level since the month of December 2021. It is anticipated that the Core CPI will fall slightly to 6.1% in November, down from 6.3% in October.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will hold a meeting on December 13–14, following which, on December 14, the Fed will announce its decision regarding whether or not to raise interest rates. In addition, FOMC is going to publish its economic forecasts for the following months. The Chair of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, has previously alluded to the possibility of a reduction in the pace of rate hikes in December and the months that will follow.

It has been determined by the CME FedWatch Tool that there is a 72.3% chance of a rate increase of 50 basis points. Wall Street is also anticipating that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in November by a total of fifty basis points (bps).

In the meantime, the Consumer Price Index will have an effect on the decision of the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates, and an increase of 75 basis points (bps) could also be on the table. JPMorgan anticipates that the CPI will read between 7.2 and 7.4%, but a CPI reading that is lower than 6.9% YoY could signal the bottom of the bear market.
