Crypto markets see biggest weekly drawdown since April

June 24, 2024

CRYPTO markets continue to retrace as deepening uncertainty takes hold.

The price of Bitcoin is down another 2.9% overnight, with the market leader trading below $63,000 this morning. Ethereum is in the red by 3.6%, while other younger cryptocurrencies have experienced even larger sell-offs.

The Fear and Greed Index has dipped into neutral, and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has retraced to around 40, with 30 generally indicating an oversold market.

Analysts attribute the decline to uncertainty around the Federal Reserve's potential rate cuts and ongoing outflows from crypto ETFs, which are denting investor confidence.
