Crypto feels power

2 October 2023 Written by Alex Kuptsikevich  FxPro Senior Market Analyst Alex Kuptsikevich

The crypto market capitalisation has risen over 2.7% in the last 24 hours to over $1.11 trillion, a level not seen since mid-August. Bitcoin managed to hold above its 50-day moving average over the weekend, which it surpassed in a strong move on the 28th of September. BTCUSD surged over $1000 with a 4% gain, hitting a 7-week high of $28.3K. Contrary to the upward momentum at the end of last week, the intraday rally may be too stretched for now. After a long march, the price touched the technically and emotionally important 200-day moving average (currently $28K). There is a risk that we could see a repeat of the August 29 reversal to the downside. But that's a risk, not the main scenario.

Bitcoin ended September up 4.1% at $27.1K, bucking the seasonal trend of the worst month of the year, which was hard to expect in an environment of a rising dollar and a falling S&P 500. Over the past 12 years, bitcoin has ended October higher on eight occasions. The average gain was 29.6%, and the average loss was 15.2%.

Solana rose 30%, rallying for the fifth day in a row and reaching its highest level since August 15th. On Sunday, it broke through the 50 and 200-day averages and continued to rise on Sunday and Monday. If Bitcoin has once again become an indicator of risk sentiment for global markets, has Solana become a leading indicator for Bitcoin?
