By Raffaele Redi

Bitcoin rose as the US dollar index retracing to 101.69 from its 20-year high

Lead cryptos are rebounding on Friday 27 May 2022, as investors seem to have digested the latest Fed minutes meeting, released on Wednesday evening, pointing to further rate rises in the upcoming months that could reduce liquidity in the market.

The lead crypto, bitcoin (BTC) also benefitted from a dollar index retracing to 101.69 from its 20-year high.

Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst at Oanda, said: “The choppy range trading of the past few session continued overnight as the US dollar swung on day-to-day moves in risk sentiment. A powerful session by Wall Street, along with almost unchanged closes in US bond markets, saw improved risk sentiment send the greenback lower overnight.”
