What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin remained consolidated in the past 24 hours following the latest Federal Open Market Committee’s minutes. Despite the rise in BTC’s price, buyers failed to hold the gained initiative. BTC is currently trading below the $16,500 level; if it falls below the current level, the next support would be at the $16,200 zone. On the other hand, Ethereum has not entered the bullish zone and remained below its vital level at $1,300. This indicates that the buyers are not ready yet for the upward move.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin is currently gaining strength towards the $16,600 level. Candles that close above this level signal a bullish reversal. A bullish engulfing cut and close above the $16,350 barrier shows that the bullish trend may continue.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “The global crypto currency market entered the weekend with a slight dip of 1.5 percent over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin managed to hold on to the $16,000 level. Meanwhile, Ethereum was trading below the $1,200 level. Both the key cryptocurrencies saw an approximately 2.5 percent decline in the past day. However, over the past day, a positive movement was seen in some cryptocurrencies like XRP and Tron. If liquidation falls, we could see some positive movement in the market.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The recent developments in the crypto market will strengthen the crypto ecosystem as regulators will now fast-track the process of creating a positive regulatory framework around digital assets. The crypto market remained calm during the day as the US thanksgiving holiday begins. Bitcoin is holding strong over $16,500 while Ethereum is sitting on a higher support level of $1,100. Relaxation of monetary policies by central banks will prove to be beneficial for the crypto market in the coming months.”
