Bitcoin - Correlation with the stock market represents a hurdle

Bitcoin - Correlation with the stock market represents a hurdle

Bitcoin / U.S. dollar BITSTAMP:BTCUSD

With the market, Bitcoin saw a sharp reversal yesterday and retraced back into the proximity of the 20 000 USD pricetag. In our opinion, this price action, once again, represents merely a short-lived bounce predestined to falter later. However, we can not ignore the odds of this price action continuing a little bit further.

Therefore, for more clues about the continuation, we will watch the price's ability to break above the sloping and short-term resistance. These developments will bolster the bullish case in the short term. However, in the face of another rate hike, worsening economic data, and progressing recession, we have difficulty believing that this recent move represents any significant change in the primary trend.

In fact, we believe that the current bounce in cryptocurrencies provides a great opportunity for repositioning on the short side. Therefore, we have no reason to change our bearish stance and stay committed to our price targets of 17 500 USD and 15 000 USD.
