Bitcoin’s earnings this week are in even more contrast to traditional and macro markets. This „decoupling“ of stocks, which Cointelegraph reported earlier, shows no signs of abating.

As Cointelegraph analyst Scott Melker ironically summed up on Twitter

Remember the day the stock plummeted and Bitcoin went up? That was today. And yesterday. They’re not correlated now, and they weren’t correlated before. Thank you.

For the analyst Michaël van de Poppe, paying too much attention to the correlation of markets in times of crisis and then it is a dangerous game.

„When the shit hits the fan (which was in March), all correlations tend to go towards 1,“ he tweeted on Thursday:

Since then, gold, silver and Bitcoin have been resistant to any downward movement and have shown strength apart from the stock markets. It is better not to look at these correlations.

Meanwhile, Cointelegraph Markets‘ latest technical analysis shows several metrics that suggest once again that BTC is on its way to the key level of USD 10,000 again.
