Why Crypto Market Price Is Down Today
The crypto market continues to struggle due to the macroeconomic factors at play. Key officials of the US Federal Reserve, delivered important speeches yesterday. The officials reaffirmed the importance of curbing inflation rates in the economy, no matter what the cost. Charles Evans, the CEO and President of the Chicago Fed states that interest rates still need to go up considerably to curb inflation levels.
He believes that the target interest rates will have to climb to anywhere between 4.5% to 4.75% in the next year to curb inflation.
Similarly, James Bullard, the President of the St. Louis Fed, brushed aside the concerns of negative productivity in the economy. He states that inflation needs to be nipped in the bud.
Will Cardano (ADA) Bounce Back
The economic outlook is impacting the entire crypto market. However, few currencies have been as volatile as Cardano. It has fallen close to 8% in the last 7 days. As competition increases between the altcoins, $ADA investors will hope for a show of strength from Cardano.
