Fed Rate Relief: Why Bitcoin (BTC) Breakout Will Begin Early 2023?


That Bitcoin (BTC) has been correlating with traditional markets has been one of the striking aspects of the current cycle. The ongoing crypto bear market cycle has been strange in many ways. One such trend is the way in which there is a drop in short positions when approaching a potential Bitcoin bottom. In this context, the U.S. Federal Reserve is determined to control inflation by continuing to rise interest rates. However, estimated figures show that a Bitcoin breakout could happen if Fed interest rate easing begins.

Historically, a prolonged price downtrend resulted in BTC reaching its bottom. But, in the current environment, the top cryptocurrency has on several spells remained in the same low range. This stagnation led to a drop in BTC whale accumulation. In fact, recent data shows that the BTC whales are holding the lowest supply in the last three years. In contrast, the number of addresses holding 0.1 to 10 $BTC saw a significant rise over the same period.

Bitcoin Breakout Imminent With Fed Actions?

After a spell of correlation with the major traditional market assets, BTC retraced a bit last month. Bitcoin has outperformed all the needed assets except the dollar strength index (DXY). Subsequent Fed rate hikes have impacted the need for assets as well as Bitcoin in recent months. According to macro experts, there could be an easing of the Fed rate hike in early 2023. Jurrien Timmer, the director of the global macro at Fidelity, predicted that easing would go on for around two years initiating in early 2023.

“When will the Fed back off? The forward curve now suggests a terminal rate of 4.93% by early 2023, followed by 130 bps of easing over the subsequent two years.”

The Dormant State

This could be a potential indication of how BTC regains its independence from external factors. Experts have in recent times predicted that the end of the Bitcoin bear market could be around the corner. Rayne Steinberg, CEO of crypto investment firm Arca, said the market is closer to the end of the slump. For close to two months now, BTC has struggled to retrace to the $23,000 level. As of writing, BTC's price stands at $19,070, down 0.81% in the last 24 hours, according to price tracking platform CoinMarketCap.
