Bitcoin is chained to $20K, and that’s good
September 02, 2022 @ 11:25 +03:00
Bitcoin remains firmly anchored to the psychologically significant $20K round level, changing by only fractions of a per cent for almost a week. Ethereum continues to draw green candles, but this is more than nominal growth, also within fractions of a per cent, while the price is still hovering around $1580. Of the top altcoins, Polygon stands out, adding 5% in a day and 8.3% in seven days. The others are down over the last seven days.
Total crypto market capitalisation, according to CoinMarketCap, added 0.9% overnight to $984bn.
Despite recent stock indices’ notable drop, BTC has been hovering near the circular $20,000 level for almost a week. The last time there was such a prolonged lull was in June 2020, when it stretched out for almost a month. Current trends indicate that bitcoin is a leading indicator for the stocks rather than following them. If this connection persists, the resilience of the most crowded with institutions, BTC and ETH, indicates that risk appetite continues, which gives an encouraging signal for the stock market.
