Interest rate decision of the US Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve is the most important institution in the financial industry. It is also the only organization that has the mandate to print US dollars and raise interest rates in the US.

Therefore, its actions are closely followed by investors around the world. When the Fed adopts an easy money policy, investors flock to riskier assets like stocks and cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, if it opts for a tighter monetary policy, people flee these assets as they display a risk-averse sentiment.

That explains why Bitcoin Cash and other cryptocurrencies skyrocketed during the pandemic and why they crashed in 2022.

Therefore, the next major catalyst for the Bitcoin Cash price was the Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision. Analysts expected the bank to continue its tightening policy to fight rising inflation and raise the key interest rate by 0.75% for the third month in a row.

This forecast has been confirmed: On Wednesday night, the Fed decided to raise the key U.S. interest rate again, bringing it to 3%. The bank also pledged to continue its policy of quantitative tightening, while continuing to reduce its balance sheet.

The main catalyst for the BCH price will be the accompanying Fed statement and its hints on what it will do later this year.

Bitcoin Cash Price Forecast

The price chart shows that the BCH price has recovered in the last few days. It has managed to move slightly above the important resistance at $111.12. It was the lowest level in July and in September. The price remains slightly below the lines of the moving averages of the last 25 and 50 days. The MACD has also moved below the neutral point.

Therefore, there is a likelihood that Bitcoin Cash will continue to fall as sellers try to get below the important support level at $100.
