The $1,070 support request followed the new Industry Recovery Fund announced by Binance. After the release of UK inflation data. which came back higher than expected. Most altcoins in the market have also followed suit as traders remain in a wait-and-see mode. Bitcoin is currently trading at $16,740 after opening the day at $16,886. BTC has been fluctuating between $16,761 and $17,002 in the past 24 hours as the recent dispute between Russia and Ukraine pushed prices down.
