Bitcoin fell below $16,700 on Friday after FTX announced it filed for bankruptcy. The world’s largest crypto reversed above $18,100 Thursday following the CPI report, after nearly reclaiming the $21,000 level over the prior weekend. This week’s losses pushed Bitcoin to its lowest level since November 2020. It fell below technical support around $18,814, and has traded between that level and a ceiling around $23,460 for the past three months, according to ARK Invest’s monthly Bitcoin report.
Ethereum dropped to around $1,250 by Friday afternoon, stalling from its rebound above $1,300 on Thursday. The second-largest crypto sank as low as $1,100 during the week after almost hitting $1,650 this past weekend.

Digital asset investments are extremely volatile. While cryptocurrency’s fundamentals and technical indicators may differ, investors should focus on the same key objectives. First, stay protected by learning when it’s time to sell, cut losses or capture profits. Second, prepare to profit if the cryptocurrency starts to rebound.
Despite their original promise, cryptocurrencies haven’t acted as hedges against inflation. Instead, they’ve trended with the broader indexes. Read The Big Picture and Market Pulse to track daily market trends.
