Bitcoin price experienced a decline after failing to break the $28,500 resistance, possibly due to disappointing performance of Ether futures exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and concerns about an upcoming economic downturn. The correction in Bitcoin’s price led to the liquidation of $22 million worth of long leverage futures contracts. Investor confidence has been affected by expectations of further contractionary measures by the U.S. Federal Reserve, as well as the underwhelming trading volumes of the newly launched Ether ETFs. Regulatory pressure also mounts as Binance faces a class-action lawsuit. The correlation between Bitcoin and traditional markets seems higher than anticipated, highlighting the impact of macroeconomic factors on cryptocurrency markets.
