The Labor Department announced on Friday (7/04) that the jobless rate dropped to 3.5 percent in March, down from 3.6 percent in February. Meanwhile, the most recent Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) data revealed a significant slowdown in the US labor market. The number of job opportunities fell to 9.9 million in February, down from 10.6 million on the last day of January, for the first time in nearly two years.

The current behavior of Bitcoin's price movement has been limited to a narrower range, with its value hovering around the upper mid-level. This range-bound trading suggests a degree of stability, but also indicates a lack of significant momentum in either direction. Despite this, sellers have been unable to push the price below the mid-level, which is a positive sign for buyers.

Additionally, the fact that ETH is performing better than BTC suggests that investors may be showing greater interest in Ethereum.
