Bitcoin Reclaims $47,000 as Risk Sentiment Shifts to Kabul Attacks, Ether and Cardano Stall

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA) Talikng Points:

  • Bitcoin (BTC/USD) tests trendline support after breaking below $48,000
  • Ether (ETH/USD) rebounds from $3,000
  • Cardano (ADA/USD) holds firm above key Fibonacci resistance at $2.50
  • Explosions in Kabul Afghanistan weigh on risk sentiment; major risk events may provide an additional catalyst for both volatility and price action

Bitcoin (BTC/USD), Ether (ETH/USD) and Cardano (ADA/USD) have suffered losses after an impressive rally earlier this week. The move that saw Bitcoin (BTC/USD) retest $50,000, a level last seen in May, also allowed Cardano (ADA/USD) to reach an all-time high of $2.97 and pushed the total market cap of the crypto sphere back above $2 Trillion.

With risk sentiment now focused on both the Kabul attacks and the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole, crypto prices remain on high alert despite a slight recovery from Thursday’s slide.
