Cryptocurrencies operate 24/7 and don’t have quarters for closing the books. ومع ذلك, بيتكوين, the market bellwether, was down just 10 percent for 2020’s first three months.

Semi-correlated?

Despite its relative resilience, bitcoin still has been trending downward over the course of the first quarter along with traditional markets, undermining the narrative that it is a “non-correlated” asset.

“I think correlation across assets is still quite high, a telltale sign of when macro matters more than micro,” said Vishal Shah, founder of Alpha5, a new derivatives exchange backed by large crypto funds.

في الواقع, the current period of turbulence isn’t the first time bitcoin has behaved similarly to mainstream financial investments.

“The lack of correlation to equities was a bit premature to announce. We had periods of high correlation, فمثلا, في 2018, when bitcoin fell along with equities in December of that year,” said Siddhartha Jha, a former Wall Street analyst now working on blockchain-focused startup Arbol.

من ناحية أخرى, هو قال, “we have had other periods of higher correlation to gold,” more befitting bitcoin’s aspirations as a hedge against inflation.

منذ 00:00 UTC Tuesday, bitcoin has been trading in a tight range of $6,300-$6,500.

“BitMEX open interest remains low, but Coinbase is reporting great inbound activity. None of the typical signs for a crypto bull-run are there,” Shah said, referring to major derivatives and spot exchanges, respectively.

March has produced the lowest level of outstanding positions on BitMEX in 18 الشهور, although the derivatives exchange’s volume has seen gains the past four days prior to leveling off Monday.

The road ahead

While the coronavirus outbreak has dealt a heavy blow to the world economy, analysts are unsure how long it will take for growth to resume.

Recessions typically unfold over a longer period of timeat least two consecutive quarters,” said Guy Hirsch, الامريكى. managing director of multi-asset platform eToro.

For the time being expect bitcoin’s role to keep switching for tradersit all depends on how other markets perform, experts say.

“The novel-tech part of bitcoin leads to correlation with Nasdaq, especially as many of the investors have overlaps,” said Arbol’s Jha. “Other times it will go with gold. But if equity markets are crashing, that correlation is going to show up very fast.”

How the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar holds up given massive doses of stimulus from Washington is something else analysts are watching keenly.

“The economic blow from the coronavirus pandemic has been instant and the impact is unprecedented,” added eToro’s Hirsch. “There is a growing consensus that due to the Fed announcing unlimited QE, investors could soon be looking to BTC as an inflation hedge against a depreciating dollar.“
