"In the past week, the global crypto market experienced a roller coaster ride. Bitcoin, which broke above the $25,000 mark for the first time in two months, failed to hold the gains. As Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of crypto investment firm Mudrex explains to Gadgets 360, the recent rise could be attributed to the global energy crisis, which pushed prices up in Europe, the US, and other countries, as well as the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting and the upcoming Ethereum merger.
The second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, has struggled to hold above US$2,000 for a long time. In the past seven days, BTC and ETH have fallen 13 percent and 18 percent, respectively. It is important to note that despite the decline, both cryptocurrencies stay above their crucial support levels at $20,000 and $1,500.
If bulls can push BTC above its current level today, we could soon see a bounce back to $22,000. The price of ETH is, however, above the $1,600 mark, signaling that buyers aren't willing to give up. The price may correct between $1,650 and 1,700 in the next few days," Patel concluded.
