Price analysis 8/10: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, SOL, DOGE, DOT, MATIC, AVAX


The August 10 Consumer Price Index (CPI) report shows inflation rose 8.5% in July year-on-year and while that figure is lower than economists’ expectations of 8.7%, it is still high. Although inflation remains well above the Federal Reserve’s 2% target, a slight slowdown is expected as a rate hike by the Federal Reserve has started to work. This has reduced the odds of a growth of 75 basis points in the September meeting to 37.5% from 68% in the September meeting, according to data from the CME Group.

Risk assets, including the cryptocurrency market, reacted positively to the CPI print. Compared to Bitcoin (BTC), the altcoin is enjoying a strong rally. This has pulled bitcoin dominance near its yearly lows while Ether (ETH) climbed near its yearly highs.
