Bitcoin’s Wild Ride: Volatility Strikes, Erasing Year’s Gains

Bitcoin took a hit on Wednesday, wiping out all its gains for the year and ending a streak of success that had surpassed the struggles of traditional assets worldwide.

The largest cryptocurrency dropped by as much as 9.2%, sliding below $41,000 after reaching a 21-month high of over $45,000 just a day earlier. This volatility also affected stocks connected to crypto, with Coinbase Global Inc. seeing a 6.7% decline.

Fadi Aboualfa, head of research at Copper Technologies Ltd., commented on the situation, anticipating heightened instability as markets assess risks across various asset classes this year. He noted similarities to the market dip experienced in early December, which was followed by a significant rebound.

Bitcoin’s recent surge anticipates a critical January 10th deadline involving a potential approval by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the first-ever exchange-traded fund linked directly to Bitcoin’s spot price. Despite Bitcoin’s remarkable 160% surge in 2023, Matrixport analyst Markus Thielen expressed skepticism, suggesting that the SEC will reject all Bitcoin ETF proposals this month. Thielen highlighted that the recent applications might not meet the SEC’s stringent requirements necessary for approval.
