What Is Driving Bitcoin Price Today?
Market uncertainty continues to remain the biggest obstacle for Bitcoin. The hawkish stance of central banks is still dictating price movements. There is no indication that the Federal Reserve will pivot from its stance of quantitative tightening. Instead, Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester stated yesterday that the biggest policy risk will be the Fed pivoting too quickly.
Despite the sluggish movement, BTC continues to garner support from notable people. Paul Tudor Jones, the billionaire trader, stated that Bitcoin will be at a much higher value in some time. Will Clemente, the co-founder of Reflexivity Research and major influencer, stated that Bitcoin is a debasement hedge and will grow in value as market instability rises.
Key Events To Watch
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the Consumer Price Index for September tomorrow. It will be the most important event in deciding Bitcoin’s immediate future.
