This period, in addition to being the 7th consecutive week to record losses for the first time in history, achieved another bearish milestone: it reached a minimum price that it had not touched since 2020: USD 25,500.

It is worth mentioning that it barely touched that figure briefly on Thursday, which means that the buying force caused the price to increase again. For the past three days it has been hovering between $29,200 and $31,400, signaling slight stability in such a range.

Cryptocurrency trader Scott Melker said today that if we operate under the assumption that the global markets are determining the movements of bitcoin at the moment, then we have to keep an eye on the economic announcements from the United States and Europe, as well as from other parts of the world.

“People all over the world are panic selling their assets into dollars. Whether it’s inflating or not, the dollar is the safe haven asset for most people,” she said. With this, he explains why the supply of bitcoin and stocks have been greater than the demand in this period, causing its price to fallwhile the US currency has appreciated.

“It is likely that we will need to see a stock market bottom before we can get to the bottom of bitcoin or at least be close,” said the specialist. In this sense, he alleged that, in March 2020, the stock market reached its minimum about ten days after BTC began to rise. Next, he recalled that the cryptocurrency grew 17 times, while the shares doubled.

Therefore, understand that at some point BTC could make a higher move higher than tech stocks when the downtrend breaks. “What happens after this period is what matters, and is likely to melt faces. It’s just a question of how long this bear market persists,” he concluded.
