- Bitcoin’s price finally made a worthwhile move after surging to $11,840 on Bitstamp following days of stagnation.
- The price has since retraced a bit to trade at its current level of around $11,780. Nevertheless, this is a move in the right direction as concerns started crippling up that we might be in for a fill of the CME gap down at $11,100.
- Bitcoin is trading approximately only $700 away from the $12,500 area – the 2020 highest level that was reached on August 17. The next major resistance for BTC now lies at $12,000 – $12,100.
- The move came soon after the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, spoke on a panel hosted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
- During the event, he said that the US is “committed to carefully and thoughtfully evaluating the potential costs and benefits of a CBDC (Centra Bank Digital Currency) for the US economy and payments system.”
- He also said that it’s better to be right than be first on CBDCs.
- Interestingly enough, BTC’s move appears to be uncorrelated to the US stock market. At the time of this writing, the S&P 500 is down about 0.4%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is down about 0.3%.
