Some crypto technical analysts had predicted that Bitcoin would reach the $30,000 mark once again. Crypto traders eagerly awaited the release of the United States Consumer Price Index CPI report on April 12. The report is expected to offer valuable insights into the Federal Reserve efforts to tackle inflation.

The Crypto Fear and Greed Index had been firmly entrenched in the Greed zone since last week with the latest update on April 11 showing a score of 68 out of a maximum of 100.

On March 21, the index also recorded a score of 68 marking its highest level since November 16, 2021, when it recorded a score of above 66, nearly a few days after Bitcoin recorded an all-time high of more than $69,000 on November 10, 2021.
