As it stands, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at $18,439, down 8.07% on the day and 17.08% from the previous week, with a total market capitalization of $354 billion.

Cryptocurrency trading analyst Ali Martinez was quick to post a hypothesis on Twitter as of September 15th. Now, Ethereum has fallen below $1,300, especially Martinez marked That ETH could end up in a downward spiral as low as $1,000:

“You don’t want ETH to go below $1,460 because that could lead to a selloff of up to $1,000.”

By comparison, Michael van de Poppe pointed Ethereum lost its upward trajectory on September 19. He said:

“Waiting for a response from $1200-1300. I am not sure if we will bounce back to $1425 because the Fed on Wednesday is the most important for setting the trend.”

The general view is that there will be a 100 basis point increase, followed by more increases in the coming months, as discussions about this policy begin to intensify.

It remains to be seen if the markets will continue lower based on the results as the FOMC meeting on Wednesday 21st approaches.
