Bitcoin Dips 5%: Is Bitcoin’s Bullish Future in Despair?

In a recent downturn in the Bitcoin market, the cryptocurrency saw a grave decline from its new all-time high to a one-week low of $66,629. Bitcoin’s sudden fall of more than 5% after hovering at the record high of $73,803.25 shows the inherent volatility of the crypto market.

Despite slight fluctuations, the largest cryptocurrency has been riding on a positive track over the past few weeks. The growing demand for the Spot Bitcoin ETF, demonstrated by the astounding trading volume and inflows, and the upcoming Bitcoin halving have highly contributed to the bullish trend in BTC.

However, the recent fall in Bitcoin’s price invokes questions regarding the uncertainty of the crypto market. BTC’s current plummet also hints at the lesser possibility of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates in June 2024.

Recent reports revealed the Fed’s decision to cut interest rates in June, considering the opinions of a majority of economists. Nonetheless, according to the CME FedWatch tool, the possibility of the rate cut has declined from the previous 74% to a rough 60% following BTC’s dip.

Bitcoin has an established history of getting volatile and ruthless after hitting (a) record high. And not only did it recently hit a new high, but it looks like the (Federal Reserve) won’t be as dovish as traders had hoped.

Bitcoin is currently trading at $68,197, with a 24-hour decline of 7.28%. Despite the daily decline, Bitcoin has marked a modest surge of 1.29% in the last 7 days and a notable 31.46% surge in the last 30 days. Market analyst Tony Sycamore asserted that Bitcoin was “undercut by the rise in US yields and the US dollar that followed the hot producer-price inflation data.”
