Market Watch April 6: Bitcoin dips following US Federal Reserve’s statements

Bitcoin dipped to the $45,000 mark after failing to breach the $47,700 level to get across $48,000. It lost 3.04% of its price in the last 24-hours and is trading at $45,247, as per CoinMarketCap. Analysts say the move higher from the week-to-date low tested the 76.4% retracement of the recent narrower declining range from $47,469.40 to $45,129.93. The popular crypto recently traded at a 2022 high around the $48,240 area before ceding some gains. Traders have been closely watching the levels – $48,574, $49,774 and $50,362.

Arcane Research, an analytical firm, highlighted that Bitcoin broke above $45,000 last week. It said funding rates have normalized around the neutral territory, pointing out the balanced demand for long and short positions.

Ether managed to stay in the $3,300 range. As BTC price fell, Ether also slipped. It lost 5.10% in the last 24-hours and is trading at $3,345. The altcoins charted minor declines, with the majority showing red. Terra LUNA managed to stay up by 0.08%. Solana (SOL) has lost as much as 7.17% in the last 24-hours, Avalanche lost 6.94%, and Polkadot 6.45%. Cardano is down by 5.94% and is changing hands at $1.14, while XRP has lost 2.24%.

The market has been up and bright since the past week, seeing slight ups and downs. Bitcoin sticks to its volatile feature which pulls and pushes Ether. It’s just a matter of time before the BTC price sees gains again.
