Bitcoin bullish following Federal announcement

Despite the bearish correction during the week, the cryptocurrency market is looking optimistic as the US Federal Reserve implies that there might be an interest rate increase next year if the economy continues to show a brighter future.

Following an announcement and forecast from the Federal Reserve, analysts suggest that Bitcoin will gain momentum again to continue the rally.

Moving from trading below the $57,000 USD level, Bitcoin jumped to above $58,000 USD. The momentum for the market continued to build following the Federal announcement as well as after it was announced that investment banking giant Morgan Stanley will offer investors access to Bitcoin-related products.
