Bitcoin (BTC) bounced off $ 40,000 for the second time on September 22 as China eased global concerns about Evergrande.
China continues to inject money into the market
According to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView, BTC / USD is hovering above $ 42,000 after the bulls defended the psychologically important $ 40,000 on Wednesday.
While the overall mood among investors is positive, China and the delta variant of the coronavirus remain worrisome.
China’s second-largest real estate company, Evergrande, recently announced that it would not be able to pay its debts that exceed $ 300 billion. China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), injected another 120 billion yuan ($ 18.6 billion) into the banking system.
The PBoC move eased tense markets and created the perception that Evergrande’s potential bankruptcy would be a slow, state-controlled bankruptcy process rather than a chaotic event with far-reaching consequences.
Still, analysts believe that the Evergrande incident, which is regarded as the “Lehman Brothers” of China, will affect the market, at least in the short term.
“I think Evergrande, the FOMC meeting, the delta variant, and some other issues will continue to create volatility for the next few weeks or maybe months, and that volatility will be a buying opportunity,” said Vasu Menon, CEO of Investment Strategy at OCBC. Bank of Singapore told Bloomberg.
In Europe, Evergrande shares rose nearly 25 percent with the opening of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Most likely, Evergrande will not be an event in a matter of days.
The cause for concern is not Evergrande, but merchants who care about Evergrande. game theory.
