What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin has gained about 4 percent in the past 24 hours. BTC has bounced off its local support level at $15,651 and the price has fixed above the resistance level at $15,932. Currently, one needs to pay attention to the $16,000 mark. If bulls can hold the gained initiative today, BTC will likely trade at $16,500 soon.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The BTC/USD pair opened at $15,766 on November 22, reaching a high of $16,281 and a low of $15,616. Bitcoin has immediate technical support near $15,850. A close of the candle above this level will indicate a possible bullish reversal.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “The global crypto market saw slight upward movement over the past day with a 2.5 percent increase. This comes after Bitcoin and Ethereum reached their lowest level in two years on Tuesday. The cryptocurrency market is still seeing changes due to the collapse of FTX. If the trends today continue, we could see key cryptocurrencies regain some lost ground and break their resistance level.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap is back above the $800 billion mark with crypto heavyweights like Bitcoin and Ether leading the effort. Bitcoin and Ether witnessed a mini rally surging by 4.41 percent and 5.49 percent, respectively. The surge is linked to the overall recovery in the financial markets across the globe. The crypto leaders are discussing the FTX fallout openly and discussing the corrective measures on public platforms which are restoring investor confidence.”
