Moving in tandem with US stocks

As reported by U.Today, Lee claimed that Bitcoin was ambidextrous, suggesting that it can do just fine in both risk-on and risk-off environments. 

Considering that the S&P 500 rallied to a new all-time high on Monday, it might signal that investors' appetites for risk have grown significantly as of recently.  

Earlier, Lee voiced a theory that there is a clear correlation between the US stock market and Bitcoin, but this theory is not popular within the crypto community.

Making Bitcoin investors happier

The prophetic bull also mentioned that the ‘Bitcoin Misery Index’ (BMI), which gauges market sentiment on a scale from 0 to 100, bottomed on Oct. 24 at 35, which was higher than Fundstrat expected. The massive crypto rally that took place after Chinese President Xi Jinping's pro-Blockchain comments certainly made holders happier.  

As reported by U.Today, the BMI index reached its highest level since 2016 (89) after the Bitcoin price jumped by 20 percent on Apr. 2 and commenced the new bull market.
