Bitcoin Rebounds Above $50K After CPI Report Disappointment

The recent US Consumer Price Index (CPI) report came in higher than expected, with a 3.1% increase instead of the anticipated 2.9%.

This unexpected inflation figure triggered a market sell-off, causing both crypto and equities to bleed. Bitcoin, which had breached the $50K mark, fell back below $49K in response to the disappointing CPI report.

However, Bitcoin quickly rebounded today, crossing back above $50K and even reaching a new high at $51,667. This swift recovery follows the panic-induced drop triggered by yesterday’s CPI announcement. 

Despite the market turbulence, traders who strategically position their portfolios with a mix of altcoins are still finding opportunities for profit. 

Altcoins React Following Bitcoin Bullish Movements

Altcoins like $VET (+9%), $TAO (+8%), and $STX (+7%) have emerged as notable leaders over the past 24 hours, reflecting a degree of decoupling among different projects in the crypto space. 

Investors can track social volume on various platforms to gauge which projects are garnering the most attention from the crowd.

Moreover, the total crypto market cap has surged past the $2 trillion mark, underscoring the resilience and growing significance of the digital asset market.

In other developments, recent data reveals that 8 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) collectively added 12,073 $BTC ($590M) to their portfolios, while Grayscale saw a decrease of 1,147 $BTC ($56M).

Notably, iShares (Blackrock) added 7,497 $BTC ($366.5M), and Fidelity added 3,039 $BTC ($148.5M) to their holdings.

These updates indicate a continued interest and investment in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies by institutional players, further solidifying the asset class’s mainstream acceptance and long-term potential.
