Bitcoin, Ethereum and most other cryptocurrencies were relatively stable on Tuesday morning, ahead of Jerome Powel’s much-awaited speech. Bitcoin avoided crushing below the $40,000 level and traded between $41,500 and $42,500 for most of the day, while ETH showed very little volatility, trading mostly between $3,000 and $3,100. The cryptocurrency market in general was very slow on Tuesday morning, bracing itself for the Fed chair’s renomination testimony on Tuesday evening.
Most major cryptocurrencies were on a downtrend since the beginning of the year, but BTC and ETH are currently trading sideways following Powel’s testimony. The Fed Chair’s comments did not come as a surprise to investors and the Central Bank’s hawkish stance has been largely priced in. BTC is currently trading at the $42,700 level with resistance at the $43,000 and the $47,500 level and support at 40,000. Ethereum is currently trading at 3,200 with support at 2,900 and resistance near the 3,220 and the 3,884 level.
