Bitcoin and ETH gained ground on the first day of the Federal Reserve’s FOMC meeting. The meeting will conclude on Wednesday when a second consecutive rate hike of 75 basis points is expected to be announced. This will likely drag down the prices of a lot of things including cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin is currently trading flat on the day at approximately $23,160 as of 4:30 ET and still holding above the crucial 200-week SMA. Current prices also are above the 50-day SMA after dipping below this indicator earlier in the trading session.


While the spotlight this weekend was on the capo of the Cryptonio crime family Ethereum known on the streets as little Tony evil, the godfather himself Sammy the bull Satoshi is making a comeback to remind everyone who is in charge.

Over the past few months, the cryptocurrency sector has been plagued with headlines of huge corporations going insolvent and losing their investor's funds. Such as Three Arrows Capital, a Singapore-based hedge fund that held a huge presence in the crypto space going insolvent while still in substantial debt.

Although BTC has found temporary support at approximately $20,000 the odds are stacked against the world’s oldest cryptocurrency finding a true bottom at this price point.
