Why Is Crypto Price Crashing Today
The crypto market faces the major brunt of global economic uncertainties. Treasury yields skyrocketed as the Federal Reserve continues to remain hawkish. The stock market also plummeted over the uncertainty surrounding China. The S&P 500 has fallen by 0.8% while the NASDAQ 100 has fallen by 0.5%. The crypto market is strongly correlated with the stock market and especially the tech-oriented NASDAQ.
The pound remains unstable as the UK macroeconomic crisis continues. UK PM Liz Truss resigned and the conservative party is still finding its new leader. Sharp volatility is expected around that news.
Key Events To Watch
The crypto investors will wait for the Fed interest rate decision on the 2nd of November before investing in the market. It will have a significant effect on the market.
