Just a few days from hitting $53,000 BTC was caught up on the receiving ends of another price crash below $46,000 as the US stock market continued suffering. The altcoins suffered as well with ETH Dropping below $1500 and BNB struggling at $220. After recovering from the weekly correction, BTC was riding at $53,000 but the coin dropped and failed to double-down on its gains so it eventually reversed the trajectory fast.
This led to breaking below the $50K price rage as reported a day ago with the bears don’t stop here and putting even more pressure in the past 24hours as BTC dropped to $46,000. The cryptocurrency regained some value to $47,000 and it is still almost 5% down since a day ago which could be related to the high correlation of Bitcoin with the US stock market that was losing some steam this week. The most prominent stock indexes, the S&P500, Dow, and NASDAQ all closed in the red after a highly volatile trading day. however, the data from CryptoQuant suggests that institutional investors continued adding BTC portions to their holdings as the price suffered.
