money.P-media – Bitcoin Rises in Three Days, Analyst Warns Beware of Inflation Risks to Crypto Industry. The price of bitcoin rose for the third day in a row, erasing losses earlier this week. However, analysts cautioned to remain wary of bitcoin’s surge.
To quote Coindesk, bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is up 1.5 percent over the past 24 hours and was recently trading at around USD 21,000 or around IDR 314.98 million (assuming an exchange rate of IDR 14,999 per US dollar).
Analysts are still wary of bitcoin’s surge in a risk-averse market with inflation hitting a 40-year high on Wednesday, July 13, 2022. Then troubled crypto lender Celsius Network filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday this week.
Oanda Senior Analyst Craig Erlam said bitcoin’s recent resilience does not mean a further recovery. “The short-term outlook remains a concern given the broader risk environment and reports of bankruptcy in the industry,” Erlam said, quoted from Coindesk, Sunday (17/7/2022).
He added that if there was the latter it could become a bigger persoalan if bitcoin ended up dropping lower.
On the other hand, the US dollar index is also relatively close to its highest level against a basket of foreign currencies and the highest level has not been seen since 2022, Glassnote wrote.
This increase was driven by strengthening demand for US dollar-denominated fixed income securities as the Federal Reserve raised interest rates or the depreciation of foreign currencies such as the euro which recently fell to its lowest level in 20 years.
The US dollar index has a dominant negative correlation with the price of bitcoin so further increases in the index could lead to a price decline for the cryptocurrency.
Most altcoins are in the green with QNT leading gains by up 13 percent over the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, ether (ETH) gained 4.6 percent.
