In recent times, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has maintained a close association with the performance of the stock market in the United States. During periods in which the price of the stock was aggressively rising, the price of bitcoin also rose, however, in a range that was relatively lower. Given this scenario, significant changes in the NASDAQ stock market could create an impact on the prices of cryptocurrencies in the short term.

In spite of the fact that this trend line has the potential to put an end to the current downward trend and serve as the starting point for a market recovery; the trend line’s support, if in case broken, will indicate that the current downtrend is extremely strong and that the market still has more room to fall.
Bitcoin Mimicking NASDAQ?
Bitcoin, on the other hand, is also currently resting on support at a trend line as can be seen from the figure below.
Given the association between the stock market and Bitcoin, there is possible anticipation of a reversal in the cryptocurrency market if the stock market is supported here. If the stock market is not supported, then analysts expect a continuation of the downward trend.
After the end of 2021 and continuing into the middle of 2022, the price of cryptocurrencies climbed and dropped in a manner comparable to equity prices.
