Decoupling? Bitcoin Price Surges Above $6.7K as Stocks Again Bearish 2349

Share via

Since topping out at $6,500 on March 31, Bitcoin (BTC) price had spent the majority of Wednesday in a steady slump which saw the price drop from $6,494 to $6,147. The pullback mirrored the poor performance in traditional markets where the S&P 500 and Dow dropped by 4.41% and 4.44% respectively. 

The slump in traditional markets appeared to be a reaction to dismal news that the United States surpassed more than 200,000 Coronavirus cases. Earlier this week the White House also stated that it concurs with the estimate that up to 240,000 Americans could die from COVID-19 within the next 3 weeks. 

If true, this would likely extend the time social distancing and mass quarantine policies stay in effect, leading to additional damage to the economy. As advised by many market analysts, global markets are unlikely to show signs of bottoming until the Coronavirus pandemic is brought under control.
