Bitcoin is back in the trend this week with stocks and other risky assets. For example, on Wednesday, Bitcoin traded at $ 43,500, up 4.6% in 24 hours. Ether, the second-largest token, was with the vast crypto market. Following Tuesday’s findings, the S&P 500 index rose 0.28%.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) warns in a blog post that the sentiments of equity and crypto are increasingly linked to the risk of “corruption in the financial markets.” Bitcoin’s relationship with the S&P 500 was only 0.01 between 2017 and 2019, the IMF said, indicating that equity and crypto prices were moving independently. (Assets in general lock 1 have value, no price correlation, 0) That changed in 2020-21, showing the central banks’ proximity to the liquidators by flooding the markets and jumping to 0.36. together.
In 2020 and 2021, Bitcoin traded up 0.34 times the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, 17 times higher than in previous years. Crypto is now more closely linked to stocks than gold, investment grade bonds and major currencies, which means that its diversity has largely disappeared.
The message from the IMF is that Bitcoin and the rest of the world will not be able to prevent injustice. Crypto variability is shifting to equity markets, and vice versa, saying, “Emotions in one market are easily transferred to another.” The IMF sees this as a threat to financial stability, especially in crypto markets.
