Dollar drops 2% as risky assets recover
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that BTC/USD is rallying on previous strength, hitting a high of $21,473 on Bitstamp – a new seven-week high.

The pair benefited from the latest US economic data, while the dollar, on the contrary, suffered. The US Dollar Index (DXY) lost 2% in a single day for the first time in years, which helped fuel the asset’s rising risk.

“With this in mind, Bitcoin has shaken off all the rallies, increased volume and returned to above $21,000,” commented Michael van de Poppe, CEO and founder of trading firm Eight.

“I am assuming we will continue towards $22.5K from here, but have a slight correction before continuing (as we took out all the liquidity). Buy dive season.”

BTC was previously known for its lack of volatility and tight trading range, which helped it beat stocks even for the first time ever.

“For the first time in history, Bitcoin has become less volatile than both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq,” Yassin Al-Manjar, crypto analyst at ARK Invest, pointed to the company’s latest report, “The Bitcoin Monthly.”

“The last time volatility was low, bitcoin went from $9,000 to $60,000 in less than a year.”

“Bitcoin’s 30-day volatility roughly equals that of the pound and the euro for the first time since October 2016. Although the Fed’s tightening could continue to fluctuate, the strength of bitcoin relative to foreign currencies is an encouraging sign.”
