Bitcoin fails to keep up with stocks

4 August 2022 Written by Alex Kuptsikevich  FxPro Senior Market Analyst Alex Kuptsikevich

Bitcoin has added 0.8% to $23100 in the past 24 hours, a worryingly weak result. Ethereum strengthened 1.3% to $1650. Other leading altcoins gained between 0.9% (Cardano) and 7.2% (BNB). Total crypto market capitalisation, according to CoinMarketCap, rose 1.8% to $1.08 trillion overnight. The Cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index lost 4 points to 30.

Bitcoin's drift towards the lower end of the uptrend channel has paused, but this is a weak result compared to the 2.6% rise in the Nasdaq, with which the cryptocurrency market is closely correlated. We are still left to guess where the most consistent trend and market noise show. The stock market was pushed yesterday by jumps in individual securities after quarterly earnings reports. In general, the macroeconomic situation is somewhat cautious.

The Fed officials were proving to the markets that they were hoping for a quick reversal of monetary policy from tightening to easing. They hinted at their willingness to raise the rate more than previously estimated. Cryptocurrencies are sensitive to financial conditions, as rising rates reduce the availability of money, and this is especially true for such financial assets.
