A common Thesis in the crypto-space is that Bitcoin traces the course of development of the stock market.
In June, a team of Analysts of the Wall Street Bank JP Morgan was convinced that “crypto currencies since the Crash in March, more like risk assets such as equities were traded – a significant change compared to the last few years”.
This correlation has also been observed by some of the Bitcoin bulls. Digital Asset Manager Charles Edwards has published a graph showing that BTC is in the case of high volatility in the stock parallel to these traded.

The expectations of a market reversal in the stock market that is in spite of the pandemic and recession in the vicinity of/on all-time highs, is confirmed. The prominent economist A. Gary Shilling said in a recent Interview with CNBC the following:
“Share [behave] is very similar to the recovery in the year 1929, where the absolute Conviction is that the Virus will be under control and that the massive monetary and fiscal stimulus will revive the economy.”
This was picked up by investors such as Jeremy Grantham and Scott Minerd. The former, a Trader in the stock market, has called in the last decades, three Markttops is. And the second is the global CIO of a Wall Street giant that runs out now that the stock may go to 50%.
All of this is important for Bitcoin because of the stock market should fall from here, the crypto market is likely.
Advantages of the correlation
Since Bitcoin fluctuates with this correlation of the price level to price level, some believe this would reduce the investment opportunities of BTC. Some executives from Goldman Sachs believe that crypto-currencies make little sense, because they have unnatural and inconsistent correlations.

“The stock-crypto-correlation is the most annoying in a Portfolio-PoV. It reduces the marginal Benefit of share ownership. Maybe you should repel shares and only Gold+BTC and hold.“

However, it remains to be seen how many investors will be based on this Thesis.
