  • The stock market hits a new high as S&P 500 reaches its 20th ATH.
  • Bitcoin drops from $73,000 to $63,000 amid bearish technical signals.
  • SEC approval of spot ETFs has increased demand for Bitcoin among investors.

The stock market is on a roll as Bitcoin navigates choppy waters. Unlike the top cryptocurrency (BTC), major indexes are showing impressive gains. For instance, the S&P 500 climbed by 13.80 points, reaching its 20th all-time closing high this year.

Stock Market going up, #Bitcoin going down.

The last time this happened, it took $BTC 15 days to reverse with an 80% pump.

Bitcoin’s Wild Ride

Bitcoin, the flagship cryptocurrency, has lately been on a rollercoaster ride. After soaring to an all-time high of $73,000, the price has recently dipped to the $63,000 level.

While this setback has caught the attention of bears, other players see this as an opportunity. MicroStrategy, for instance, plans to add to its debt pile to acquire more Bitcoin, betting on its long-term potential.

The approval of spot ETFs by the Securities and Exchange Commission has injected fresh demand into Bitcoin. Meanwhile, long-term investors have reaped substantial gains, but short-term players continue to hold, buoyed by recent momentum.

Bearish Signals for Bitcoin

Technical analysis reveals sustained selling pressure and a lack of strong buyer momentum. Oscillators and short-term moving averages hint at a continued downtrend in the near term.

That said, traders should exercise caution, especially those with a long-term investment horizon. This phase could be a market correction, and Bitcoin’s price may continue descending.

Investors must stay vigilant, considering both the euphoria and the underlying dynamics. Whether Bitcoin’s dip is a blip or a harbinger remains to be seen, but the stock market’s growth persists, driven by optimism and resilience.
