Bitcoin has seen a 3-month highest price since July, and experts consider it a market sentiment. While the gold market is bullish due to war patterns and Fed rate hikes, a similar price spurt is also seen in the Bitcoins cryptocurrencies.
Bitcoins at 3-month Highest Price
Bitcoin (BTC) is rising, drawing inspiration from traditional rate-sensitive assets such as gold. Based on market value, the leading cryptocurrency surged to $30,797 during Monday’s Asian trading hours, marking its highest point since July 15.
In contrast, gold has seen a 6.7% increase for the month, while BTC’s prices have risen by 14%. Gold started gaining value a week before Bitcoin, mainly due to –
- Increased tensions between Israel and Hamas
- Speculation about the Federal Reserve’s potential pause in rate hikes
Interest rates are a significant factor in the macroeconomic landscape right now, and interestingly, assets sensitive to rate changes, such as gold, are also experiencing a bullish trend. This situation bodes well for Bitcoin.
Moreover, war spending traditionally implies inflation, and the Federal Reserve hints at a pause in rate hikes while the U.S. economy remains strong. This is advantageous for both gold and BTC. The optimism surrounding a Bitcoin ETF and the Ripple lawsuit also contributes to a bullish sentiment for Bitcoin.
Factors Affecting Bitcoin’s Price
|Market Demand||When more people buy Bitcoin, its price tends to rise; when more people sell, its price can fall.|
|Adoption||The more businesses and individuals use Bitcoin for transactions and investments, the more its price can rise. Increased adoption can boost confidence in the cryptocurrency.|
|Market Sentiment||Public perception and sentiment about Bitcoin can have a significant impact. Positive news and developments often increase buying, while negative information can lead to selling.|
|Market Liquidity||The liquidity of Bitcoin markets can affect price stability. A highly liquid market is less prone to significant price fluctuations.|
|Macroeconomic Factors||Economic conditions, including inflation and monetary policy, can influence Bitcoin as a store of value or hedge against traditional financial assets.|
|Geopolitical Events||Events such as international conflicts, trade disputes, or government instability can drive demand for Bitcoin as a haven asset.|
|Halving Events||Bitcoin’s programmed supply halving events, which reduce the rate at which new Bitcoins are created, can impact supply and demand dynamics, potentially affecting the price.|
|Altcoin Market||The performance and popularity of other cryptocurrencies (altcoins) can indirectly impact BTC’s price. Investors may shift between assets based on relative performance.|
|Mining Difficulty||Changes in the difficulty of Bitcoin mining can affect the cost of mining and influence miners’ selling behavior.|
Analysts believe that the potential approval of an exchange-traded fund tracking the spot price of Bitcoin is one of the reasons behind the current rally. Investors are turning to the BTC network for its stability during economic and geopolitical uncertainty as they speculate on the future of Bitcoin pending the approval of a spot ETF.
The options market makers are positioned in a way that suggests the potential for a significant upward move in the short term, amplifying price volatility.
