All seasoned with the start of the so-called tapering, or a reduction in the purchase volume of public debt securities by the central bank, which if it continues at this rate should end next July. With the conditional which is a must, because Powell himself confirmed that the FED will remain at the window to monitor the progress of the economy.

What did Powell say and why did he reflect on the world of cryptocurrencies?

BTC in conjunction with the announcement of FED had a very strong compression, then quickly recovered in one of the hourly candles most memorable in its history, but then return to a certain weakness in conjunction with the opening of the European markets.
