Did Rise in the Stock Market Led to Crypto Surge?

The traditional financial market has been reeling from the inflation fear and investors are looking for a better hedge against inflation. Market pundits believe investors search for a new inflation hedge has brought them to the crypto market as well as the stock market. The Asian market closed on a record high while the major European stocks surge to new highs as well.

Most investors are still waiting for the US Inflation data which could possible help the crypto market further. Bitcoin has emerged as the primary inflation hedge for even mainstream investors as visible during the last Covid wave in the first quarter of this year. At the time when gold and other inflation hedges were on a downturn, BTC rose to new highs and its doing something similar now as well.

“This breakout in bitcoin might signal the start of a final push-up for the fourth quarter before the crypto market shows more pronounced consolidation into next year. Strength in bitcoin, ethereum and many other altcoins looks likely in the weeks to come.” Fundstrat said in a report on Monday.
