The tech-focused Nasdaq, S&P 500, which has a strong technology component, and Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) all finished down at least 1.5% amid ongoing fears that the struggle to end high inflation is leading inevitably to a harsh recession – a so-called hard, economic landing

Our take

Considering this correlation between the performance of the broader equity markets and cryptos, it’s feasible to expect further downside in the face of macroeconomic pressures. For instance, if the S&P 500 drops down to the next major region between 3200-3400 points, we can safely assume that crypto assets such Bitcoin could retest the $12,000-$13,000 price region.

It’s also important to note that many Bitcoin whales are holding the asset between the $10,000 to $17,000 range. These whales could sell if the price were to drop to around $17,000, tanking the asset even further. In the short term, however, Bitcoin bulls could inspire some confidence if they manage to reclaim the $20,000 price area.

Ethereum and ETH-oriented products are seeing their second consecutive week of inflows, according to a fresh weekly fund flow report from CoinShares. Thus, during the past week, there was an inflow of $5.6 million into these assets.

ETH is changing hands a little above $1,300, up approximately 1.5% from the previous day. The second largest crypto spent much of the past two weeks trading comfortably above this level despite being more volatile than Bitcoin. In the last 24 hours, Its trading volume rose by 34.4 per cent to $8.3 billion.

The asset has been hovering below the 2022 Point of Control (POC) at $1,326, which is the highest traded volume level for this year. This barrier is a support level, but a breakdown could flip it into a hurdle.

Our take

With the start of a new month and a new quarter, investors can expect a manipulative move that first pushes Ethereum's price lower, luring impatient bears, followed by a quick surge in bullish momentum that pushes ETH higher, trapping the short-sellers.

So market participants should expect a move that retests the immediate support level at $1,200 or the subsequent level at $1,050. Ideally, this level would be perfect for long-term investors to accumulate ETH, which could create a trend reversal, pushing Ethereum price back to $1,730.

ALTCOINS

Ripple was among the best performers in the past few weeks, mostly fueled by positive developments in its legal case against the US SEC. Today, though, the situation is different, and XRP has declined by more than 7.5% to $0.44.

Cardano is one of the losers in the crypto market in the last 24 hours. ADA has fallen close to 3% in the last 24 hours and is still showing bearish tendencies.

Solana, Dogecoin, Polkadot, Shiba Inu, MATIC, Tron, and Avalanche are also in the red now, albeit with less harmful percentages. Binance Coin is the only top 10 cryptocurrency slightly in the green.
