On December 15 at 16:30 Moscow time in the United States will be released the report on the dynamics of consumer prices for November. Later, at 22:00 Moscow time, the Fed will summarize the results of the meeting and provide updated economic forecasts. Half an hour later, the press conference of the head of the Central Bank Jerome Powell will begin.
During his speech in the Senate on November 30, Powell refused to interpret the increase in inflationary pressures as “temporary.” He also pointed to the possibility of curtailing the buyout of assets “several months earlier than expected.”
The prospect of a faster Fed tightening policy has pushed traditional markets and bitcoin towards a moderate correction.
As a reminder, Glassnode analysts saw the predominance of conservative sentiment among traders based on the state of the crypto derivatives market.
