Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) was once again trading below $24,000 in today’s session, as the token continued to react to increased levels of market turbulence.

Wednesday saw the world’s largest cryptocurrency fall to an intraday low of $22,771.52, which comes less than a day after trading above $23,900.

Today’s low saw BTC/USD drop to its lowest point in the past five days, and this came ahead of the release of the latest U.S. inflation report.

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Following the report, which showed that inflation in the United States fell to 8.5% annualized in July, versus the expected 8.7%, BTC moved higher.

As of writing, BTC/USD is trading at $23,593.37, which is almost $1,000 higher than the day’s earlier low.

This move came as the relative strength index (RSI) bounded from its floor at the 53.90 level, and is currently tracking at 56.10.

Ethereum

After starting the day lower, ethereum (ETH) was also buoyed by the better-than-expected consumer price index (CPI) report.

ETH/USD began the day trading at a bottom of $1,665.09. However, as we neared the release of the data, prices climbed by over $100.

As of writing, ethereum is trading at a day’s high of $1,761.56 and rising, as bulls reentered the market following recent consolidation.
