What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin has been consolidating, fluctuating within the range of $26,900 and $27,000 within the last 24 hours. Following the release of positive job data in May, with the US adding 339,000 jobs surpassing expectations, BTC managed to surpass the $27,000 mark during the weekend. Should buyers maintain BTC above its current level, a potential upward movement towards the $27,350 and subsequently the $27,500 range may occur. Conversely, failure to overcome the resistance could result in a continued downward trajectory. Looking ahead, investors are now focused on the upcoming release of the FOMC meeting minutes scheduled for June 14, following the significant data events from the previous week.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures, said, “Crypto markets have continued to be tightly range-bound as overall market capitalization remained just below $1.2 trillion over the weekend, without any change in the last 24 hours. The crypto fear and greed index has climbed a point since yesterday and currently remains in the neutral zone with 53 points. Investors are currently displaying a lack of initiation for trend control. It is because of this that we can expect the market to perform sideways till a prominent narrative picks up.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, offered his take, “Crypto security sees new enthusiasm from the industry as new projects emerge around digital asset protection and new features such as artificial intelligence, interoperability, etc become more prominent in these ventures. Terra’s v2.1.0 upgrade proposal that could align Terra Classic with other blockchains in the Terra network has given a significant rise in price for the token. This has been mainly due to increased buying pressure. Bitcoin’s moving averages point to a sell sentiment.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder, Unocoin said, “Bitcoin is currently trading in a sideways band with support at $27,000 and resistance expected at $27,600. Traders are keeping a close eye on a potential breakout from this range with a target of $28,000 if the resistance level is breached. Meanwhile, Ethereum is currently at $1,882.24, showing a slight decrease of -0.54 percent in the last 24 hours. It is currently -2 percent away from its 7-day high of $1,920.57 and 2.05 percent away from its 7-day low of $1,844.51. Ethereum has a circulating supply of 120.23 million ETH.”
