“Bitcoin to revisit $30,000”
Bloomberg’s chief expert on commodities believes that the 2 percent decline shown by Bitcoin today in the morning (8 a.m. EST) indicates that the upcoming week for risk assets is going to be rough.
The chart shared by McGlone shows that Bitcoin and Nasdaq 100 futures are moving in the same tragectory and are both going down at the moment. He seems to be hinting that Bitcoin is again correlating with the stock market.
