Meanwhile, the US dollar bouncing back amidst recession fears could have forced BTC/USD down. Remember, the USD Index (DXY) dribbles at 107.05 following a bounce off a 2-week low yesterday.

The DXY seemed to gain after the recession fears emerged from Europe and massive UK and Canada inflation data. Also, China’s COVID issues and Sino-American tensions underpinned the USD’s safe-haven demand.

Meanwhile, updates around equities and the market’s risk profile might help gauge BTC/USD near-term moves as deteriorating sentiments may accompany Tesla updates to send the BTC pair lower.

BTC/USD bulls stare at an immediate defeat at the 50-day Exponential Moving Average near $23,400. The rejection came after the bellwether crypto remained elevated, translating to relief for market participants who have dealt with lows over the past few months.

Bullish Estimates Could Have Been Premature

Today’s sudden pullback might also mean a lesson to cryptocurrency investors who already called in the bear market end. While Bitcoin’s pullback remains mild, several alts saw deeper cuts as the latest price surges opened profit-booking opportunities for investors.
