Major cryptocurrencies faced a downfall as the U.S. 10-year yield surged to its highest level in over 16 years.
Interest rates continued to rise as the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield surged by an additional 11 basis points to reach 4.69%. This increase was driven by unexpectedly robust manufacturing data, which highlighted the strength of the U.S. economy. The ISM figures recorded a reading of 49, surpassing the forecasted 47.7 and indicating the possibility of more rate hikes in the future.

Crypto analyst Michael Van de Poppe predicts that Bitcoin will rebound to $28,400, indicating that now is the opportune moment to buy the dip. “I’m assuming that we’ll see some retests on lower boundaries at $27,000-27,500 before we’ll continue, but breaking $30,000 opens the gates to $40,000 really fast.”
