BTC rose by nearly 4% after dropping to as low as $18,300 post-CPI’s release. If BTC can move above the current level, we might see it rise to US$20,00 soon. On the other hand, ETH has also covered its losses by gaining almost 3% in the past 24 hours. If ETH can close above the US$1,400, we might see an upward trend," said Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder, Mudrex- A Global Crypto Investment Platform.

A key gauge of US consumer prices advanced to a 40-year high in September, underscoring persistent, elevated inflation that’s squeezing households and pushing the Federal Reserve toward another aggressive rate hike.

The core consumer price index, which excludes food and energy, increased 6.6% from a year ago, the highest level since 1982, according to data released by the US Labor Department showed Thursday. From a month earlier, the core CPI climbed 0.6% for a second month.
