Crypto Market Daily Highlights – DOGE Tracked the NASDAQ into the Red
- It was a mixed Tuesday for the crypto top ten, with DOGE and ADA seeing red to buck the top ten trend.
- A bearish NASDAQ dragged the crypto market into the red before a final-hour rebound as investors continued to respond to the latest round of US economic indicators.
- The crypto market cap rose by $3.3 billion to end the day at $811.4 billion.
A quiet day on the US economic calendar left investors to consider the latest round of US stats and possible influence on the Fed.
Friday’s Jobs Report and Monday’s ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI showed strength in the labor market and the US economy. With wage growth accelerating and inflation falling modestly, the weak ISM Manufacturing PMI may not be enough to prevent another bullish rate hike in just under eight days.
The NASDAQ Composite Index slid by 2.00%, with the S&P500 falling by 1.44%, reflecting increased investor uncertainty toward next week’s policy decision.
However, the NASDAQ mini provided support in the final hour (UTC). This morning, the NASDAQ mini was up 18.25 points. Avoiding a bearish start to the session was good enough to draw dip buyers back.
Today, the US economic calendar is on the lighter side, with nonfarm productivity and unit labor costs due. The lack of stats could see greater interest in today’s labor cost figures following last week’s jobs report.
This morning, the NASDAQ mini was up 22.25 points.
