The crypto market pulled back as investors await July’s CPI number.
Market participants scaled down their activity before July’s inflation numbers coming out today.
The overall crypto market saw prices change by -3.86% in the last 24 hours, which is normal given the recent rally.
Trading volume over the last 24 hours was 26% lower than the recent 7-day average, meaning investors and traders are waiting on the sidelines for now.

Bitcoin is the biggest coin by market cap and its price changed by -3.77% over the last 24 hours.
Bitcoin failed to reach $25,000 once again. However, Bitcoin bulls managed to hold $23,000, which is a major price level. Depending on the inflation numbers, we could see either another run to $25,000 or a drop to $21,000.
The second most valuable crypto, Ethereum, saw its price change by -5.64%. Ethereum’s market cap is 36.49% of Bitcoin’s total value.
Ether trades around $1,700, which is a major price level. $2,000 is the next target for the bulls and $1,500 for the bears.
