FOMC meeting: Hopes for “relief.”
Data from TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro followed BTC/USD as the pair traded above $22,500 at the time it was written. It had also reached local highs of $23,300 that day.
After nearing $20,000.800, the pair saw a strong rebound. Traditional markets also recovered after panic over inflation in the United States.
Material Indicators, an on-chain analytics resource for Bitcoin, noted that the market has reclaimed the 200 day simple moving average (200SMA) which was an important feature in Bitcoin bear markets and acted as support during previous price cycles.
However, it was “too soon to tell” whether the 200 SMA would still provide an attractive area, according to a tweet. The Federal Reserve will provide inflation cues starting June 15.

The market currently projects a 96% chance that the Fed will announce a 75bps increase on Wednesday. Although the market was pricing in a 50bps increase, last week’s hot inflation data changed this sentiment. “This week, a 75bps increase was given 4% chance,” popular Twitter account @tedtalksmacro said in one of a series tweets.
He said that a 50-point increase in stocks and crypto would signify that both stocks “should rally really hard,” while volatility was to be simulated by a “sell the gossip, buy the news” event.
Filbfilb, Decentrader cofounder, said that “maybe they provide some relief.”

The MVRVZ score is an indicator of how far spot price is from realized price. It was negative as BTC/USD fell below $23,400.
MVRV-Z has historically captured the lowest generation prices of Bitcoin. Therefore, buying in its green area has resulted in substantial returns.
Cointelegraph published an earlier week report on the significance and value of Bitcoin’s realized prices.
