Bitcoin has fallen down to $20,400 with less than 3 hours to go till the fed’s latest interest rate decision. The expected rate hike is 75bps given the perceived strength of the economy. Both a 50bps hike or a 100bps hike appears unlikely at this point.
Meanwhile, the S&P 500 saw selling pressure at 3930 on Tuesday and has broken down to 3843, whereas DXY is mustering up momentum to break through 111.7. Today’s decision will bring a lot of volatility into markets and set a clearer direction for the rest of the month.
Top altcoin gainers and losers
Bitcoin Technical Analysis
Bitcoin price has made a double top at \(21,000. If the interest rate decision is taken negatively we could lose \)20,000 and move to \(18,900. Currently, multiple indicators on H4 and H1 time frames signal oversold conditions, hinting at an initial upside move that could be met by a swift rejection at \)20,600 taking us below $20,000.
Ethereum Technical Analysis
Ethereum saw a 4% move and went up to \(1,600 as mentioned previously before being knocked back down to \)1,540 for support. Currently forming a range within the demand zone at \(1,550, [price of ETH](https://coin360.com/coin/ethereum-eth) looks to be doing okay on H4 and H1 time frames, much like Bitcoin, but the daily time frame and liquidation map suggest \)1,350 could be seen in the coming days.
