Following the Fed's decision to hold the interest rate steady, BTC experienced a 3.5% decrease immediately after the announcement. This overview presents the market situation for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple (XRP) as of Thursday, February 1.

Bitcoin (BTC)

At present, Bitcoin's trend remains ambiguous. The asset is caught between a support zone of $40,900–$41,800 and a resistance range of $42,900–$44,000. It is anticipated that breaking out of this range will determine its future trajectory.

Should buyers gain momentum and secure a position above the $44,000 mark, the next target would be the resistance zone between $45,000 and $46,200. Surpassing this would require tackling the asset's yearly high to maintain the uptrend.

If Bitcoin enters a deeper correction phase, it could drop back to the support zone of $38,600–$39,500. Should sellers break through this area, Bitcoin's decline could extend down to the $35,000 level.

Ripple (XRP)

The XRP chart shows a clear local downward trend. The key resistance zone for the asset lies between $0.512 and $0.526. Overcoming this range is essential for buyers to shift the trend upwards.

Activating this scenario could lead to a rebound in the asset’s price towards resistance levels at $0.538–$0.556 and then $0.575. A successful move above this last resistance, particularly on significant trade volumes and with BTC support, would be crucial.

If XRP continues to fall and settles below $0.48, it will face its first resistance within the support zone of $0.460–$0.474.
