Market highlights December 17: Cryptos decline, tech giants tumble on Fed’s 2022 plan

The majority of cryptos registered losses over the past 24 hours, with many of the top 10 in the red this morning. All three major US indices ended the day in the red yesterday after the Fed announced its intention to raise rates at least three times in 2022. The tech-heavy NASDAQ100 sank nearly 2.5% following the news, as Apple (-3.9%), Tesla (-5%), NVIDIA (-6.8%), Amazon (-2.56%) and Microsoft (-2.9%) all slumped.

 Bitcoin was down 2.5% at time of writing, priced around $47,500. The largest losses of the top 10 were registered by Polkadot, which lost 8%, followed by Cardano, which fell more than 6%. Dogecoin and Shiba Inu both lost around 5%.
