Commenting on the downward trend, Oleg Smagin, Head of Strategy at Delio, said, “The main reason [for] an ongoing correction is [a] rising dollar that has dampened both bitcoin and altcoins. The prices on the stock market, forex and the market of commodities have all been affected as traders expect the monetary support to be reduced.”
