Market Update (Nov. 30, 2022)
Bitcoin was able to reach $17,162 in the last 24 hours but fell shortly after, and is currently flirting with the support at $16,800. Fed chair Powell is expected to deliver a speech later today and market participants will be looking for hints about future policy changes.
Meanwhile, the S&P 500 was able to hold its key support level of 3,953 yesterday and is currently moving sideways. DXY, on the other hand, is still on track with its double-bottom pattern and likely waiting on economic news to make its next move.
Market participants will do well to note how a hearing on FTX and the FOMC meeting are both scheduled for Dec. 13 and Dec. 14, respectively, and will most likely result in market volatility.

BTC, along with ETH and most higher market cap alts remain extremely stable and show no signs of either an upside or downside move for now. We’re likely going to have some chop before our next confirmation, however, we’re ready to catch it perfectly once it happens.
Overnight Bitcoin broke above the resistance after a day of compression. The move came after news that Brazil has voted to recognize Bitcoin as a form of Payment, although this does not mean it is legal tender.
We can see that this has seen the price break out from the downtrend resistance that had been in place since 14th November. I would like to see what happens on a retest of $16.5k-$16.4k, which is a strong demand zone as well as being the old resistance trendline.
Today we have Jerome Powell Speaking in Washington (this evening,) where he will give remarks on the economy and Labour market. This is not an event where figures are released, but people will listen to his comments for any clues of what his plans are in the coming months. Therefore this can cause volatility.
Of course, we have the monthly close tonight too, what a great month it has been.
Ethereum finally reached $1,280 — a target we’ve highlighted a few times in our daily updates. Currently, it is also consolidating alongside Bitcoin and a final push toward $1,300 is still on the table. However, we could see increased distribution during a rally, potentially bringing the price down to range lows of around $1,000.
