U.S. stock futures experienced a slight dip on Sunday evening following Moodys Investors Services decision to revise the countrys credit rating outlook from stable to negative. The futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased by 54 points, equivalent to a 0.1% drop. Similarly, the futures linked to the S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 also witnessed a decline of 0.2%.

Moodys justification for the downgrade highlighted the substantial fiscal deficits and the prevailing partisan gridlock in Washington as contributing factors. It is important to note that the ratings agency reiterated Americas credit rating at AAA, which is the highest possible level.

On the economic data front, investors will closely monitor key indicators including Octobers monthly federal budget, the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yorks October consumer expectations survey, and remarks by Fed Governor Lisa Cook on Monday morning. This anticipation builds up to the release of the monthly consumer price index data on Tuesday.

Analyst Notes: Michael Van de Poppe has observed significant growth in Bitcoins price, with a rally from $15,000 to $37,500 over the past year.

"What were looking at here is the phase where we will see altcoins accelerate. The first ones have been shining massively, with Chainlink, Solana and Injective Protocol" Van de Poppe wrote on X.

He adds, "Overall, given the positive cocktail of the ETFs and the halving, the fundamental growth of the entire sector and the acceptation of this entire market, I think were facing a bull cycle comparable to 2017."

#Bitcoin is entering the first Bull Phase and #Altcoins are entering their first Bull Phase too.

Bitcoin has been enjoying its accumulation period, so did altcoins. During that period, altcoins are suffering heavily, while Bitcoin is grinding upwards.

Now it’s time to shine. Michal van de Poppe (@CryptoMichNL) November 11, 2023

A closely followed crypto analyst has identified a bullish signal in Bitcoin (BTC) that has historically preceded a significant price surge.Loading… Loading… Loading…

Cheds says that when Bitcoin exhibited a similar signal in October 2020, it experienced an exponential increase in value, resulting in gains of over 5 times its initial price.Here is the observation:

"Observation: BTC weekly RSI entering power zone (70+, also known as overbought).

Overbought = bullish.

The last time this happened the price ran from $12,000 to $64,000.

Though the price context is different, it is worth observing."

Santiment, an on-chain data analytics firm, has just released a report stating that Solana has surpassed $54 for the first time since May 2022. This positive development is further supported by the increasing discussion rates around $SOL, suggesting that mainstream investors acknowledge its decoupling from other assets. While funding rates remain high, they have not reached a level of concern just yet.
