Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Bitcoin gains ground amid US Dollar decline

0
  • Bitcoin is negatively correlated with the US Dollar.
  • Altcoins have been extending the recovery on Monday.
  • ETH/BTC retreated from the recent high as Bitcoin’s upside momentum gained traction.

The cryptocurrency market has been on fire since the end of the previous week. Bitcoin and all major altcoins smashed quite a number of important technical barriers before the upside momentum faded away. However, the bulls may resume the assault after a short pause and a technical correction from the overbought levels. 

A massive rush to safety on the global markets manifests itself in a gold rally. The precious metal prices jumped to an all-time high as investors are concerns about second-wave outbreaks of the coronavirus. The stock markets and the US dollar are in the free fall as the rising COVID-19 cases in China and Spain deteriorate economic forecasts.

The July FOMC meeting should kick off a period from August into mid-September in which markets should price in an increasingly dovish, forward-looking Fed policy via lower real rates. This should benefit breakeven inflation rates, support risk assets, and weigh on the U.S. dollar, Morgan Stanley strategists including Matthew Hornbach wrote in a report. 

While Bitcoin’s correlation to gold and stock markets remains unclear, the sell-off of the US Dollar seems to be a supportive factor for the digital asset.
