Why it matters: Bitcoin and Ethereum fell sharply as investor sentiment remained subdued ahead of a key US Federal Reserve policy meeting and earnings data from major tech giants.

Cryptocurrencies mirrored the tech-heavy Nasdaq, which fell 0.4% on Monday. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures fell 0.4% and 0.5% respectively at press time after Walmart Inc. WMT lowered its guidelines and said increased inflation was impacting consumer spending.

This week’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting could potentially end with a 100 basis point rate hike, according to some economists.

The CME FedWatch tool estimated the probability of a 75bp rate hike at 77.5%, while the 100bp rate was 22.5% at the time of writing.

The specter of interest rate hikes and an impending recession have also not spared the dollar, which has recently been inversely correlated with cryptocurrencies. The dollar index, a measure of the dollar’s strength against a basket of currencies, was down 0.08% at 106.40 as of going to press.

Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA, noted the stack of macroeconomic fundamentals working against Bitcoin in a note seen by Benzinga.

“Cryptocurrencies are weaker overall as investors await a FOMC decision that will likely end with a 75 basis point rate hike and a reaffirmation of their commitment to fight inflation.”

Delphi Digital said there are two key timeframes for investors going forward. If Bitcoin moves above the current $20,000 to $24,000 price range, “high time frame resistance” will come into play around $28,000 to $30,000, it said.

“If I [Bitcoin] below the current range, we’re probably looking at the $10K-$12K price range, with some possible fronts in the $14K-$16K region,” Delphi Digital said in a note.

Cryptocurrency trader Michaël van de Poppe said “people are really expecting the worst” from Wednesday — the last day of the FOMC meeting — “but maybe the worst is already heavily priced in.”

An indicator that identifies a turning point in an asset’s price trend was used by Ali Martinez on the Ethereum daily chart. The analyst said TD Sequential is providing a “sell signal.”

“A spike in profit taking that lasts [ETH] below $1,550 could trigger a correction to $1,300.”
