Bitcoin and Ethereum turning green again: Why is the crypto market pumping?

It is always the same, when the price is down nobody wants to buy and when it goes up nobody likes to sell. Even more importantly, investors are looking for a reason why the crypto market is recovering all of a sudden. The price for Bitcoin went up by 7% and for Ethereum by 15% overnight. After being tortured by brutal sell-offs for the better part of this year, we are finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

Why are Bitcoin and Ethereum leading the charge, and what reasons do have to believe in a recovery?

Reports are coming in

First and foremost, the crypto market is not recovering on its own. Nasdaq and the S&P 500 were recovering for three consecutive days. The reason for this success is being the earnings reports for the third quarter of this year.

Again, everything that evolves around trading is about meeting expectations or failing to meet them. The market expected that the numbers were worse for most companies. In some cases, they really are, and stocks from Microsoft and Alphabet are not doing well today just to name two examples. What is more important is the overall outlook and, in those terms, many companies did better than expected.

What follows is that price is going up again. Since crypto has become heavily correlated with stocks at the beginning of this year, Bitcoin and Ether are both recovering, too.

Are we out of the woods yet?

This remains to be seen. The very reasons why this year was such a disaster for stocks and crypto are still in effect. There is war in Ukraine, and the US and Russia are exchanging nuclear threats with each other. China and the US are still in a trade war, and Taiwan could be potentially the next theater of war if tensions are getting higher.

Inflation is raging, oil prices are sky-high, and the Fed has only one tool to solve these problems. It is exactly that tool that is hurting the market the most. With all that being said, there are plenty of obstacles in our way until we enter bullish territory again.

The most important thing is to stay optimistic. Bitcoin is at $20.000 during one of the most difficult times we have witnessed for decades. A war in Europe, a trade war between global superpowers, and economical shifts. Still, BTC is worth five figures and the crypto market is maturing. While we cannot provide any insights into the future, we leave it up to your fantasy of what’s going to happen in terms of price movement once the market expects that some or even all of these problems are solved.

Mar 21, 2023

Will the American Central Bank on Thursday raise interest rates with another 0.25%? In a banking sector that's under severe stress, even higher interest rates could squeeze banks and even undermine trust in the entire financial system. At the same time, inflation hasn't come down to the target of 2%, which demands more interest rate hikes - at least in the opinion of the Fed.
