BITCOIN continues to find its footing above the $62,000 price floor, trading mostly sideways below $63,000 this morning. Ethereum is down 1% overnight, with most of the market also idling.

There are exceptions, though. Avalanche has dropped over 5% in 24 hours, while Uniswap is down 2.7%. Overall, the market seems fragmented, with cryptos moving in different directions.

The Fear and Greed Index is hovering in neutral, and the CoinDesk Large Cap Select Index has declined 1% overnight, reflecting the neutral sentiment ahead of Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech today, where investors will look for clues on future interest rate decisions.
