U.S. stocks rebounded yesterday, bitcoin stalled
The US stock market has been through a roller coaster for a week and the benchmark index has caused incredible price volatility. The US stock market kicked off with a strong rebound this week, causing the Dow Jones Index to rise by more than 5 percentage points, the S & P 500 Index and the Nasdaq both rising more than 4 percentage points. This is the worst week the market has experienced since the financial crisis of 2008.
However, just yesterday, the vast majority of this rebounded earnings fell through due to another sharp sell-off, the most recent drop being within hours of the Federal Reserve's emergency rate cut of 50 basis points.
Today, the market is climbing again, with the Dow Jones Index up 2% and the S & P 500 Index up 1.6%.
Bitcoin is not currently keeping up with the momentum of the stock market. Bitcoin's current current price is $ 8,750, a decrease of less than 1%.
Gold investors: bitcoin has fallen sharply due to recent interest rate cuts
Peter Schiff, a well-known gold investor, once again attacked Bitcoin in a recent tweet, saying on Twitter: "Even if interest rates have been cut by 50 basis points and there has been violent turmoil in the traditional market, Bitcoin cannot stop It has to make people wonder when Bitcoin will stop falling. "He finally claimed that if Bitcoin is hopelessly picking up, then it is meaningless to store Bitcoin. The most effective way to stop losses is to sell Bitcoin as soon as possible. Off.
Interestingly, after the rate cut yesterday, Bitcoin did rise. However, after the bitcoin reached $ 8,900, it fell back, and this momentum disappeared.
As for whether the current stock market rally will also help to drive bitcoin's rise, it is unclear. It is also unclear whether Bitcoin can surpass the bottleneck of the current price level.
