Crypto prices surged in today’s session, as markets continued to react to the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate hike. The Fed opted to raise rates by 75 базисни точки (bps) for a second consecutive meeting. Bitcoin briefly rose above the $23K mark earlier in the day, with ethereum rallying to a fresh six-week high over the $1,600 марка.
The move by the bank to boost the federal funds rate by 0.75% pushed bitcoin to an intraday high of $23,358.34 earlier in today’s session.
As of writing, this is the highest level BTC/USD has hit since last Friday, юни 22, when prices were held close to a resistance level of $24,000.
Гледайки графиката, earlier gains have somewhat eased, with some bulls opting to abandon their positions, as opposed to attempting to extend the uptrend, leading to bitcoin now trading at $22,949.05.
This may have occurred due to the fact that the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) collided with a ceiling of its own, в 57.
Should traders hope to push the token back above $23,000, this ceiling will need to be broken.
In addition to bitcoin, ethereum (ETH) was also in the green on Thursday, as prices moved past a key resistance level.
ETH/USD briefly broke out of its resistance point at $1,645 in today’s session, hitting a high of $1,666.88 in the process.
This was the highest price for ethereum since June 10, when prices were trading at a high above $1,800.
въпреки това, like bitcoin, earlier bullish momentum has given way as today’s session has progressed, with the token now trading at $1,619.57.
Гледайки графиката, it now appears as if the earlier rally above the ceiling of $1,645 might be a false breakout.
In addition to this, the RSI is now tracking at 62.58, which is relatively near the next resistance point of 66, which might have prompted bulls to exit, thus avoiding the imminent obstacle.
