“Positive earnings reports in the US stock market clubbed with the hopes that the FED might ease on its relentless plan of aggressive interest rate hikes led to a rally in equity and crypto markets alike as Bitcoin and Ethereum surpass the important price resistance points,” the research team at CoinDCX told Gadgets 360.

Binance Coin, Ripple, Cardano,Solana, and Polygon reeled in gains alongside BTC and ETH.

Dogecoin and Shiba Inu also saw price hikes by 15.39 percent and 11.11 perceny respectively.

The global crypto market cap grew by 3.35 percent in the last 24 hours and touched the valuation of $1.03 trillion (8,51,354 crore).

Meanwhile, stablecoins such as Tether, USD Coin, and Binance USD did see small losses today.

“Roughly $1.15 billion (roughly Rs. 9,463 crore) worth of liquidations took place over the last 24 hours, with around 90 percent of that figure denoting short positions as markets showed bullish signs with the Dollar Strength Index (DXY) witnessing its lowest value in the past 4 weeks as it inches closer to the 109 level, a key level that could dictate the direction of the market in the coming weeks ahead of the next FOMC meeting,” the CoinDCX team added.
