Why Are Cryptocurrencies Moving?
The broader cryptocurrency market, including Ethereum and Baby Dogecoin, has traded lower on continued weakness following comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell suggesting a rate hike of 50 basis points is possible for May. The Fed has indicated it may move quicker on rate hikes to curb inflation.
Fed policy outlook, rising Treasury yields and quarterly earnings reports have dragged markets lower in April. Tuesday’s session saw a 3-year high of 2.940% for the 10-year note.
On an International Monetary Fund panel, Powell said reducing inflation is “absolutely essential” and raising rates by half a percentage point in May is “on the table.”
This survey was conducted by Benzinga in April 2022 and included the responses of a diverse population of adults 18 or older.
Opting into the survey was completely voluntary, with no incentives offered to potential respondents. The study reflects results from over 1,000 adults.
