The Bitcoin price is struggling to recover after the Fed entered an aggressive tightening cycle

The price of Bitcoin plunged to an intraday low of $40,269 earlier today on the Bitstamp exchange.

The flagship cryptocurrency is down roughly 4% over the past 24 hours. It is now precariously close to retesting the $37,000 support level.

The U.S. dollar index (DYX) has rallied above 100 for the first time since May 2020 amid the U.S. Federal Reserve’s hiking cycle. The greenback’s ongoing rally highlights strong risk-off sentiment.
