The release of January’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) data showed inflation at 6.4% year-on-year (YoY). This came in worse than the estimated 6.2% figure.

Bitcoin initially sunk 1.4% on the news and was trading just short of $21,640.

However, approximately an hour after the announcement, bulls took control, spiking the price as high as $22,330.
