Is the market selling over yet? While Bitcoin alongside the rest of crypto market has stayed stable, the S&P 500 suffered a 10% correction which translates to be the worst month since 2018 when the stock market crashed terribly. The question asked is whether the almost decade-long finance bull market is at risk.

Perhaps, there’s no immediate trigger directly related to sell-off yet, but possibly the trade war between the US and China as well as the increase in Fed rates might have been behind the market turmoil. The current rout in global stocks might be a way the markets are telling the Federal Reserves that they are on the wrong course.

Some folks have their belief that the stock market crash has a lot to do with the upcoming US midterm elections.

Plus for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets in general?

The last time the global stocks crashed, investors had a shift to protect their money by investing in precious metals like gold and silver. But, that was back in 2008 when cryptocurrencies had not busted into the scene.

Almost a decade later, merely we may have a similar scenario in the stock market, and it seems like the crash has no impact on the cryptocurrencies, and hence, no signs of an inverse correlation. It implies that, just like gold and other precious metals, Bitcoin and the crypto market value, in general, depends solely on the supply and demand that’s within the market and is not affected by the global economic performance.

Therefore, it means that most individuals may seek to buy crypto coins-and since Bitcoin is dominating the market, it will significantly benefit. It is, therefore, expected that Bitcoin would do well during this kind of instances. One thing the shifting investors should be aware of is that the price of Bitcoin “always” keeps on fluctuating not like a mere 12% drop (it has become less-volatile in recent times though).

But predicting the price of Bitcoin in the future or the entire crypto market is not easy. And if someone is claiming to know the BTC price in the next ten years, is a liar. Sorry, but it’s the truth. But one thing is for sure, cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology are the future, and it’s predicted that there might be an increase in the crypto market to $20 trillion in the next ten years.

If the stocks fall, we may be in for a good run in the crypto market as there could be a spike in investors turning to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Currently, there is no denying that big profits can be made from buying and selling of Bitcoin, but we can’t deny the fact that losses can also be in the waiting.

As it looks, indeed, as the stock market is falling, only the crypto market seems to be the best option to follow and buying Bitcoin at a time like now would sound to be a wise investment decision.

Bitcoin grows beyond $4000

Bitcoin (BTC) is starting to make waves again, and while they are still small, investors around the world are welcoming the positive development. The number one cryptocurrency has just breached the $4,000 mark, and while this is still five times lower price than it was in early January 2018, it is over $800 higher than in early December 2018.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is at $4,048.60, after the coin experienced a 5.53% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, its market cap sits just above $70.5 billion, while the coin’s daily trading volume is at $5.7 billion.

Bitcoin has had a rough 2018, just like the rest of the crypto market. In fact, the coin is so influential that it usually dictates the market behavior, whether positive or negative. Right now, the rest of the market follows the positive trend, with all of the top 10 cryptocurrencies currently trading in the green, while only a few among the top 100 coins are experiencing minor losses.

The largest gainers among the top 10 cryptos by market cap are Litecoin (LTC) with a 7.64% growth, and Stellar (XLM), which is growing by 7.27%.

Bitcoin’s behavior in the new year has mostly been positive, which is a trend that originally started on December 17th, 2018. After a month and a half of constant losses, which have brought…

What Will Happen First: BTC 2k or 5k?

2018 has ended, and while there was no enormous surge that investors were hoping for, it still ended with a bit of hope for those wishing to see Bitcoin BTC rise.

Only two weeks before the end of 2018, BTC was in a desperate position, with the value of its coin being at $3,200, threating to drop even lower. However, a sudden surge occurred on December 17th, which returned $1,000 to its value. And, since it lost approximately $400 since then, the final days of 2018 have still seen BTC well-above its lowest point of that year.

Now, 2019 has arrived, with traders and investors wondering what will happen next? Is BTC going to drop to $2,000? Will it rise back to $5,000? Will the bear market expand to this year as well, or is the market ready for a proper bull run this time?

The answer, once again, remains uncertain. The problems with scalability may be reduced significantly soon, but high volatility remains an issue. Even the slightest shift can have enormous consequences for the entire market, and any news can impact the BTC price, no matter how big or small, or if positive or negative. To stop its further drop, BTC had to find a balance. However, this balance is more fragile than ever, and the price is expected to move very soon.

What to expect…
