Bitcoin Price Surges Above $28,000 After Strong US Jobs Data

Recommended Posts

BTC price has soared above $28,000, reaching its highest level since Aug, after the US reported better-than-expected jobs data for September. The positive economic outlook could boost the demand for BTC as a hedge against inflation and currency devaluation.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the US added 336,000 jobs in September, beating the consensus estimate of 318,000. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.8%, the lowest since March 2020.

The strong jobs data could increase the chances of the Federal Reserve tapering its bond-buying program and raising interest rates sooner than expected. However, the inflation data for September, which will be released on October 12, could also influence the Fed's decision.

How will the inflation data affect BTC price?

Inflation is one of the key drivers of BTC price, as many investors see BTC as a store of value and a hedge against rising prices. The higher the inflation, the more attractive BTC becomes as an alternative asset.

However, high inflation could also prompt the Fed to tighten its monetary policy, which could put downward pressure on BTC price. The Fed has said that it will tolerate inflation above its 2% target for some time, but it will not let it run out of control.

Therefore, the September inflation data could have a significant impact on BTC price movement in the coming days. If the inflation data is lower than expected, it could ease the pressure on the Fed to act quickly and support BTC price. If the inflation data is higher than expected, it could increase the urgency for the Fed to act and weigh on BTC price.

What are the key levels to watch for BTC price?

According to order flow analysis from MobChart, BTC price could face resistance at $28,500, $29,000, and $29,500 levels, where there are large sell orders waiting. On Binance Exchange alone, there are 145 and 157 BTC for sale at $28,500 and $29,000 levels respectively.

On the other hand, BTC price could find support at $27,200 and $27,000 levels, where there are large buy orders waiting. These levels also coincide with liquidity areas or price imbalances that have been retested by BTC price in the past few days.

Therefore, BTC price could trade in a range between $27,000 and $29,000 in the near term, depending on the outcome of the inflation data and the market sentiment. A break above or below this range could signal a new direction for BTC price.

    • Going by what i see on the weekly TF, BTC is heading to $46-48k major price zone level. If it breaks and holds above this zone, then $51-52k is the next minor zone, since its a minor zone, BTC might rally at this zone before deciding to go all the way up or coming back down. Though, I am still mindful of the bearish flag pattern, so there is tendency that BTC could start dumping from any of this zones yah. Lets see how it plays out yah.
    • Interesting update. I also withdrew my funds from Binance and deposited it on Bitget and Bybit exchange just to be safe. Though, personally, I believe Binance will bounce back from this set back. It is no news that both CZ and Binance has contributed immense to the growth of the crypto space and continues to do so.. More so, their case is a different from FTX as you clearly stated. I am optimistic Binance is going no where, not any time soon yah.
    • Gold price hits new peak, and silver price makes headway, but Brent crude oil falls again Precious metals are on the up once more following Jerome Powell’s speech on Friday, but the fallout from the OPEC meeting continues to weigh on oil prices. Source:Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 04 December 2023 13:08 Gold surges to new peak Gold prices shot to a new record high overnight, continuing the surge from Friday’s session. Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech on Friday left markets continuing to expect that no more Fed rate hikes are on their way. This sent gold flying and pushed the dollar lower. The move puts the price firmly above the highs seen in 2022 and 2023, but the price does look overextended in the short-term. Some consolidation around current levels, or even a short-term drop back towards $2050 might not be entirely surprising. Source: ProRealTime Brent falls further OPEC’s decision to go for voluntary cuts to production last week failed to support oil prices, and now the next move appears to be a test of the November low. The past month has seen the price try and fail to hold above the 200-day SMA, and now the November low around $77.30 comes into view. Below this would see the price head back in the direction of the late Spring/early Summer lows around $72. Buyers will need a close back above $80 to suggest another attempt to challenge the 200-day SMA could develop. Source: ProRealTime Silver hits six-month plus high Silver’s move on Friday was not quite as exuberant as gold’s, but it still managed to hit its highest level in over six months. The rally of the past three weeks has barely halted. From a higher low in early November, when the price lagged behind its more expensive cousin, silver then surged through the 50- and 200-day SMAs. It has now cleared the August and July highs, and now the May peak around $26.20 comes into view. A move back below $25 would be needed to signal that some short-term consolidation had begun.
