Why is this important: Bitcoin and Ethereum traded slightly in the green on Wednesday evening as the two-day stock market rally came to an end. At the time of writing, US stock futures were also slightly higher.
The ISM Services PMI, an index that measures the direction of economic trends in services sectors, fell to 56.7 in September from 56.9 in August, but beat market estimates.
“The economy is too strong for the Fed to pivot. The good start to October is over after a report on private payrolls and services sector data reminded investors how bad parts of the economy remain strong,” said Edouard Moyasenior market analyst at OANDA.
On Bitcoin, Moya said, “The good start to October is over and markets were quickly reminded that the Fed’s pivot calls were premature again. Traders were quickly reminded that the economy is not falling off a cliff and that the Fed may need to stay aggressive with its rate hike cycle next year.
“Bitcoin fundamentals are still supporting healthy consolidation here and that should stay the case until we see a double dose of robust hiring on Friday and much higher than expected inflation next week.”
