For Angel Di Matteo @shadowargel

The new announcements of FED

On this occasion, the drop seen in the price of Bitcoin coincides with the new announcements made yesterday by the president of the US Federal Reserve (FED), Jerome Powell, who anticipated that from next March there will be changes in the current economic conditions to deal with the inflation that affects the US currency.

Among the changes announced by Powell, he especially highlighted the increase in bank interest rates starting next March. For many analysts, it was this aspect that maintained optimal conditions to guarantee liquidity within the cryptocurrency market, since investors had a greater amount of capital to allocate to other sectors.

Although Powell did not indicate how much the increase would be, he did anticipate that the percentage could vary in the future depending on what was agreed in the quarterly meetings that the team will hold. FED, and that this measure would also be accompanied by other actions such as reducing purchases of bonds and assets, something that it has been doing since last year.

After Powell’s announcement, both the stock markets and the crypto sector in general fell sharply, reflecting fear and uncertainty about a possible negative outlook at least in the short term.

Major altcoins are also down this January 27

As expected, not only Bitcoin was affected after the announcements of the FED yesterday, so a good part of the main altcoins also score lower for the morning of this January 27.
