It is a mixed Friday session for the crypto top ten, with 90 minutes. DOGE bucks the top ten trend with a modest loss, while ADA and XRP lead the way. Despite the bullish session, BTC visited sub-$19,000 for the second time in six sessions. However, BTC is falling short of $20,000 for the fourteenth consecutive day.

It was a quiet day on the economic calendar, leaving FOMC member chatter and updates from the Annual Freedman’s Bank Forum in focus.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen eased concerns over embedded inflation, reportedly saying,

“I don’t believe it’s becoming embedded in the US economy. The way inflation would become embedded is if you saw expectations of inflation over the medium term rising to levels that are inconsistent with 2% inflation, and then those higher inflation expectations being built into wages and prices.”

FOMC members added further support, with reports of the Fed planning to discuss a smaller rate hike in December, raising hopes of an end to the aggressive policy moves to bring inflation to target.

On Friday, FOMC member Mary Daly reportedly said it is time to consider slowing the pace of rate hikes, which should avoid sending the economy into a Fed-fueled recession. In response to the Fed chatter and Yellen’s comments, the NASDAQ 100 rallied by 2.31%, delivering crypto support.
