Slow start for Bitcoin, but cryptocurrency outperforms stocks and shares

Wednesday, January 5, 2022, 11:21 a.m.

The cryptocurrency markets are largely flat this morning. Bitcoin is up 1 percent to just under $ 47,000, while the second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, is up 1.5 percent to around $ 3,800.

A number of commentators, including El Salvador’s Nayib Bukele, have boldly predicted that Bitcoin will hit the elusive milestone of $ 100,000 this year. Evidence so far suggests it could be a long way.

While it was a relatively quiet start to the year for crypto compared to 2021 when it burst out of the gate, it at least outperformed the stock markets. Yesterday, Asian stocks, S&P 500 futures and tech-heavy Nasdaq futures all fell, while European stock markets opened this morning as well.

Analysts have suggested markets are hit by growing belief that the US Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in March from the 25.9 percent probability a month ago.

Over the past year, rumors of rate hikes have often caused the leading cryptocurrency to move down in line with riskier tech stocks. Will 2022 be the year Bitcoin breaks out of this cycle and is seen as the safe haven that many in the crypto community consider it to be?
