- The NASDAQ Index provided broader crypto market support, with hopes of softer US inflation driving demand for riskier assets.
- Despite the bullish session, the upswing was modest, with the crypto market cap rising by $1.55 billion to $807.23 billion.
It was a mixed Monday session for the crypto top ten. BNB and DOGE led the way down, while MATIC found strong support. Despite a bullish session, BTC fell to sub-$17,000 for the first time in four sessions before wrapping up the day at $17,229.
BNB struggled throughout the session, with news of US authorities planning to charge Binance with financial crimes weighing.
There were no US economic indicators to provide direction. The lack of stats left the crypto market in the hands of the NASDAQ Index and sentiment toward today’s US CPI report.
Hopes of softer US inflation to support a December Fed pivot delivered a bullish NASDAQ Index session. The NASDAQ Index rose by 1.26%, with the S&P500 gaining 1.43% to provide crypto market support.
Today, the US CPI report will be in the spotlight, with softer inflation likely to deliver a bullish NASDAQ Index and crypto session. However, news updates on the investigations into Binance and updates from the SEC v Ripple case will also influence.
