The virtual currency has been traded in a limited range this year, while trying to recover its highs by the end of 2021. Currently, bitcoin is over 50% below the maximum price of $ 68,990.90 per unit reached in November 2021.
The decline comes after the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost more than 1,000 points on Thursday and the Nasdaq fell 5%. These losses marked the worst one-day declines in 2020. The Dow and Nasdaq fell again on Friday.
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve raised its reference interest rate by half a percentage point last Wednesday in response to inflationary pressures. The stock market rose after Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said a higher rate hike of 0.75 percentage points was not being considered. But by Thursday, investors had wiped out those gains.
Wall Street stock market continued its negative trend on Monday.
