What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin showed little signs of recovery after the confidence returned over the macroeconomic outlook and FTX partially started to open withdrawals to users. The price of BTC has gained by 6 percent, currently trading above the $17,000 level. If BTC falls below the current level, the next major support would be in the $16,500 range. On the other hand, Ethereum and XRP have recorded one of the most notable price pullbacks in the past 24 hours. If ETH can establish the price above the $1,350 level, we may expect some relief.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “While the “main” CPI fell to its lowest level since January, traders focused on the “core” reading and its potential implications for monetary policy amid signs of easing inflationary pressures. Figures for the core CPI, which excludes food and energy, were reported on Thursday and showed a 0.3 percent increase from the previous month. This was significantly slower than the 0.6 percent rate recorded in September and the 0.5 percent growth.”

weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “After two days of drastic changes, the global crypto market cap saw some positive changes with a 5 percent increase in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin was trading at $17,000 and Ethereum at $1,200. Interestingly, despite the market seeing new lows, Polygon saw an approximately 20 percent increase over the past day. In such times of uncertainty, investors must maintain patience, go through their long-term goals and avoid panic selling.”
