Taking a breather

After fully recovering from the gargantuan price drop in March, BTC has so far struggled to gain footing above the $9,000 level as Vegatta memes get out of control.

With Bitcoin plunging more than four percent to $8,528, this week is already off to an underwhelming start. That said, BTC was due for a respite after such a strong advance. 

Back in April 2019, BTC ended its streak of seven green weekly candles with a long-legged Doji. The candle, which usually signals indecision, was followed by a massive percent bull run.

Stock futures fall

Bitcoin’s four percent drop coincided with U.S. stock futures opening sharply lower. E-mini Dow futures have so far retreated 0.88 percent or 207 basis points.

Notably, Bitcoin surged above $9,000 May 1 despite a red day on Wall Street, but it appears that Bitcoin is yet to decouple from the equity market.
