Crypto Market News: Ahead of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for April 2023 by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, US stock futures dropped slightly. This data is crucial for the markets as it could act as a catalyst to the US Federal Reserve‘s shift in stance on target rate hike, amid expectations that the upcoming Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting in June 2023 would see a pause in rate hikes. Also, the inflation data would shed light on whether the ongoing rate hikes are proving to be appropriate or not.

Overall, it could be a bullish case for Bitcoin price owing to the direct correlation with the tech stocks. Also, the CME FedWatch tool shows that the US Federal Reserve cuts interest rate, based on the rate futures.
