#Bitcoin was in for a surprise plunge this Monday as investors assessed the situation in a worrisome oil market.

The #BTC price fell by 4.30 percent to circa $6,748 per token shortly after the US oil futures price slipped into negative territory for the first time.

The two assets remain non-correlated, but Bitcoin’s growing correspondence to the stock market amid the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic might have led to the Bitcoin price decline.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 2.4 percent to 23650.44 on Monday, taking cues from the oil market.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite, too, plunged by 1.8 percent and 1 percent, respectively, showing that investors continued to seek safety away from risk-on assets.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGE FOR BITCOIN BULLS

Bitcoin’s intraday fall did not stop its prices from holding its prevailing uptrend.

The cryptocurrency plunged right into what appears like its interim support before attempting a minor pullback heading into the Asian session Tuesday.

As shown in the Coinbase 1D chart above, bitcoin tested the upward sloping support trendline of the saffroned Ascending Channel.

The cryptocurrency bounced back weakly by 1.01 percent to hit an intraday high near $6,925, expressing its likelihood to consolidate further in the current resistance range defined by $6,800-lows and $7,500-highs.

Meanwhile, the price located converging support in the blue 50-daily moving average wave.

Bulls attempted to maintain bitcoin’s interim upside bias near these support levels, confirming that they still have a technical advantage against a dwindling macroeconomic outlook.

“People say bitcoin is wild,” commented Frank Chapporra, a former Nasdaq reporter. “Throughout this [coronavirus] crisis, we’ve seen spine-tingling equity volatility, Treasury yields hit record lows, oil prices fall below zero, unprecedented Fed printing and bond purchasing. Right now, bitcoin might be more stable than anything else.”

Low Adoption Puts Bitcoin Price ‘Expectations’ at Risk – Peter Brandt

As prices stick around $7,000, Brandt appeared to get cold feet over the still marginal role that Bitcoin has in the corporate realm.

Bitcoin (BTC) may not be “living up to expectations,” one of its best-known supporters from the finance world has warned as prices stagnate.

In a Twitter discussion on April 20, Peter Brandt pointed to low corporate interaction as an indicator that Bitcoin was not having the revolutionary impact its supporters hoped for.

“I understand the bullish narrative for $BTC relative to the: Fables of the Feds and their Frivolous Fiats: The argument for the moon makes sense. My only question is whether Bitcoin is actually living up to its high expectations. This question does NOT make me a hater”
