BREAKING! US Inflation Data Release Impacts Bitcoin (BTC) and the Dollar!

Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, experienced a decline following the announcement of US Non-Farm Employment data last Friday, with its price dropping to the $66,000 level.

Prior to today’s critical FED interest rate decision and the anticipated US inflation data, BTC had briefly surged above $67,000.

Here are the official inflation figures:

Consumer Price Index Monthly: Announced 0.0% – Expected 0.1% – Previous 0.3%

Consumer Price Index Annual: Announced 3.3% – Expected 3.4% – Previous 3.4%

Core Consumer Price Index Monthly: Announced 0.2% – Expected 0.3% – Previous 0.3%

Core Consumer Price Index Annual: Announced 3.4% – Expected 3.5% – Previous 3.6%

The consumer price index is a vital metric used to gauge fluctuations in consumer purchasing patterns and US inflation.

A higher-than-anticipated value signals a positive/bull market for the USD, while a lower-than-expected value implies a negative/bear market for the USD.
