Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that the BTC/USD pair is passing through its last milestones after a brief consolidation.
The pair’s 24-hour gains remained around 8% and weekly returns near 25% as Bitcoin and altcoins benefited from a lower US dollar and a rally in stock markets.

Analyst Venturefounder commented, “Bitcoin’s rally looks good? Yes. But BTC won’t be proud of this rally.”
“Bitcoin and Nasdaq correlation remains at 91% (historic high), and both are looking at Fed policies, interest rate expectations, economic recession and DXY USD for guidance. All driven holistically.”
However, the US Dollar Index (DXY) showed no signs of its own successful recovery on the day, as it was rejected at 107 after the local low.
