After Jerome Powell, the Chair of the Federal Reserve, shared new comments on policy and inflation expectations, there was a short period of increased volatility in the pair’s performance.

Although Jerome Powell did not provide clear signals to risk assets in his statements, he did indicate a possibility for future changes if necessary. The Kobeissi Letter, a financial commentary resource, cautioned that there is a significant amount of uncertainty that lies ahead.

Despite the event, Bitcoin quickly moved on and returned to a price range that was already familiar, similar to the range observed during the previous weekend.

Popular trader Skew analyzed the situation on exchanges and predicted that a new wave of volatility would occur in the near future. In a Twitter post, Skew highlighted the increasing differences between the perpetual futures market and the spot market, which he had previously discussed.

“The market has been experiencing a narrow and illiquid trading range since the speeches by the Federal Reserve speakers on Friday. It is anticipated that early next week, the market will reach an equilibrium point where both the spot and perpetual futures markets will be compelled to establish a clear trend”.

Another post highlighted that there were initial indications suggesting a potential disruption to the current status quo.

Crypto Tony, another trader, predicted that the existing trading range would remain unchanged until the beginning of the new macro trading week.

Crypto Tony mentioned that if the price of the asset closes either above or below the levels indicated on the accompanying 4-hour chart, it would provide a reason to reassess the market conditions.

IncomeSharks, a well-known analytics account, cautioned that a more significant price correction was anticipated. However, they predicted that this correction would not occur until another week has passed.

Stockmoney Lizards, a trading resource, shared a similar viewpoint, forecasting an upcoming breakdown in the market. They referred to the “head and shoulders” pattern, which has been widely discussed in trading circles over the past few weeks.

Summarizing the situation, Stockmoney Lizards indicated that a correction was currently in progress and suggested a target range of around $24,500 for the market price.
