Ahead of Thursday’s crucial U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation data, Bitcoin (BTC) is nearing the $60,000 threshold, bolstered by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s cautious approach to curbing inflation.

In his testimony before the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday, Powell stressed the need for a balanced approach to monetary policy, resisting calls for immediate interest rate cuts. He reiterated the importance of achieving a stable 2% inflation target, underscoring the need for more convincing data before making any adjustments.

Powell emphasized the risks of inflation, stating that policymakers must avoid easing up too soon or too much, as well as too little too late. He noted that reducing policy restraint too late or too little could unduly weaken economic activity and employment, citing significant cooling in the labor market and the Fed’s awareness of downside risks.
