Top banks worldwide also predicted an increase of 75 basis-point, such as Bank of America, Barclays, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, etc.
In case the Fed raises interest rates in line with market expectations of 0.75%, the DXY index will increase, but it is expected that the price of Bitcoin (BTC) will not crash because the whole market is prepared for this rate increase. Fed and interest rates are at an "acceptable" level according to the inflation reduction plan proposed by the Fed. Besides the prediction that BTC will not crash, there will be a significant recovery when the market is ready for a Fed rate hike.
