Cryptocurrency Price Action
Bitcoin held above $16,600 Friday afternoon, relatively unchanged from Monday but down 5% over the last seven days. The world’s largest cryptocurrency traded above $21,000 two weekends ago — just prior to the unraveling of leading crypto exchange FTX. The two-week meltdown pushed Bitcoin to two-year lows. And it’s traded from $16,200 to $17,000 through the past week.
Ethereum is trading just over $1,200 after peaking at $1,277 for the week on Tuesday. The No. 2 crypto traded near $1,650 prior to the FTX collapse.

Digital asset investments are extremely volatile. While cryptocurrency’s fundamentals and technical indicators may differ, investors should focus on the same key objectives. First, stay protected by learning when it’s time to sell, cut losses or capture profits. Second, prepare to profit if the cryptocurrency starts to rebound.
Despite their original promise, cryptocurrencies haven’t acted as hedges against inflation. Instead, they’ve trended with the broader indexes. Read The Big Picture and Market Pulse to track daily market trends.
