Bear Market Bottom? Weekly Newsletter #008

Key economic indicators to move crypto in the upcoming week.

Welcome,

Crypto got a modest relief boost as prices stabilized and investors grew more confident. Even though last week was quiet, it may be the calm before the storm, as several key events in the upcoming days can shake the market.

According to the Economic Calendar, this week includes an update on US inflation figures (Wed), US weekly jobless claims and wholesale inflation figures (Thurs), Chinese GDP figures (Fri), and US retail sales figures (Fri).

We will pay close attention to these indicators because they have a history of influencing crypto prices. Now, let us move on to the updates from last seven days.

Market update

Bitcoin (BTC) rebounded slightly last week and is currently trading at $20,445. Ethereum (ETH) on the other hand consolidates around $1,144.

Despite the uplift in performance in the market, Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), and Dogecoin (DOGE) show an average loss of -5.92%.

The total market cap of crypto is back at over $900B, with BTC dominating at 43.35% share.

Final word

The small recovery last week came as a relief to investors after months of struggle and downward action. Analysts are still split into two camps on whether this will be the bottom of the 2022 bear market.

With each fallen piece, the pace of the Crypto Domino Effect slows down, but the upcoming update of key economic indicators may spike the market’s volatility again. The next five days are decisive in forecasting which direction crypto will move during July.
