Price Point

Bitcoin (BTC) has gained ground since dropping to $18,100 Thursday after the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data was released. The cryptocurrency was recently trading at around $19,600, up just over 5% on the day.

Ether (ETH) gained 6% on the day, while Quant Networkrs token surged 20%. The question is whether bitcoin and the rest of the crypto market can sustain Fridayrs rebound.

As investors awaited earnings reports from major banks Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase, U.S. equity futures wavered. Stocks turned sharply higher Thursday, after major indexes spent most of the morning deep in negative territory.
