Crypto Rebounds from Pullback, Boosted by Fed’s Comments

Bitcoin Mining Stocks

Cryptocurrencies swiftly rebounded from their recent pullback as the Federal Reserve’s comments restored risk appetite in global markets, attracting buyers back to the crypto space. Within 24 hours, the total market capitalization surged by 7.7% to $2.55 trillion. While Bitcoin showed a similar growth pattern, Ethereum and Solana saw even stronger gains, adding around 10%.

Bitcoin maintained levels above 61.8% of its rally, staying around $60.3K, indicating resilience in the face of recent volatility. If the current positive sentiment persists, the next major target for Bitcoin could be a return to its previous highs above $73K.

Ethereum’s price reversed upwards after briefly touching the 50-day moving average, confirming that the recent correction was a temporary setback rather than a trend reversal. Solana, which experienced a more significant dip of over 22% between March 18th and 20th, falling from $210 to $162, has also recovered, currently trading around $190.

Technical indicators for all three cryptocurrencies suggest a bullish trend, with a strong recovery following the recent pullback. The market sentiment was buoyed by weakness in the Fed and other central banks, prompting active buying.
