Crypto Markets Hold Stable Course Alongside S&P 500

Wednesday, January 19, 2022 11:15 a.m.

A flat week in the crypto markets continues as Bitcoin continues to consolidate in a tight $41-43,000 range. The price of the major cryptocurrency fell slightly again today, falling 1% in the past 24 hours and 3% in the past week.

Currently, the S&P 500 still appears to be dictating the direction of Bitcoin and the overall crypto market, as evidenced by correlations reaching new highs. Bitcoin’s 90-day correlation with the S&P 500 is currently at its highest level since October 2020. Yesterday, the S&P 500 lost 1.8%.

The Fear and Greed Index which measures consumer sentiment generally continues to suggest that investors are fearful. The index has risen slightly from the low of 10 hit on January 8, but has failed to sustain momentum to a degree that suggests confidence has returned to the market.

Where Bitcoin is going, other major altcoins seem to follow. Ethereum has underperformed Bitcoin over the past seven days, but the correlation is currently high.
