Bitcoin has a spring in its step after a strong crypto weekend

July 1, 2024

MARKETS are showing some pep at the start of the week, with most cryptos in the positive this morning. Bitcoin is above $63,000, up 2.8% overnight, while Ethereum is up similarly over 24 hours. Maker and Solana continue to be among the big movers, both rising by more than 5%.

Analysts haven't pinpointed a single reason for the upswing in sentiment, noting that last month's downturn was likely a normal bull market correction.

This week is set to be significant for economic and inflation-related announcements. Tomorrow, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will give an overview of current monetary policy, which can significantly impact financial markets and investor sentiment. Minutes from the June meeting between US policymakers will be shared the following day. Will Powell make reference to rate cuts later this year? And will markets respond?
