Markets rethink Fed rate cuts as Bitcoin circles $44K on US jobs data

After the Dec. 8 Wall Street open, Bitcoin (BTC) reached $44,000, as the US employment data reduced expectations of interest rate cuts.

Bitcoin stays strong as labor market data creates unease in the U.S. dollar

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data tracked the latest BTC price movements as risk assets responded to the most recent U.S. inflation signals.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ official report showed that nonfarm payrolls exceeded expectations at 199,000 compared to the 190,000 predicted, while the unemployment rate was lower than anticipated at 3.7%, versus 3.9%.

This suggested that the complete impact of Federal Reserve monetary tightening had yet to be seen, and although other data had already revealed falling inflation, the labor figures were still met with caution.

CME Group’s FedWatch Tool data indicated that the likelihood of anything other than keeping the rate unchanged at the Fed’s upcoming meeting was practically nil.

The U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) saw significant volatility around the data, briefly hitting its highest levels since Nov. 20 before dropping back to 103.8 at the time of writing.

Another trader and analyst Daan Crypto Trades, then again, noticed significant territories of liquidity directly around the spot cost.

Continuing consideration zeroed in on altcoins versus Bitcoin, with Ether (ETH) and Solana’s SOL (SOL) taking the lead overnight with revived expectation of a type of “alt season” coming back.

“Bitcoin is still consolidating around $43K, while Ethereum is taking more momentum,” Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of MN Trading, told Twitter Web 3.0 subscribers.
