Bitcoin Bounce Coincides With Possible Macro Reversal
In this episode of NewsBTC’s daily technical analysis videos, we compare Bitcoin price with the S&P 500, WTI Crude Oil, Gold, and the almighty dollar through the DXY.
Take a look at the video below:
VIDEO: Bitcoin Price Analysis (BTCUSD): October 4, 2022
Stock Market Correlation With Crypto Continues
To start, comparing the S&P 500 against Bitcoin, shows that Bitcoin tends to top out prior to the stock market. Importantly, BTC and the SPX have been more tightly correlated than in the past.
This is notable because along with Bitcoin, US stock indices have turned sharply up. Both asset classes are down considerably from all-time highs, so this is nothing yet to celebrate.

Oil Slips Slightly After BTC, But Turning Up Sharply
In yet another macro comparison with WTI Crude Oil, we can see that oil tends to trail crypto and stocks slightly.
Oil prices tend to fall even more sharply than crypto during corrections, but are fewer and further between. Oil prices are also turning up sharply at the same time as Bitcoin and the stock market.
Will The Digital Gold Narrative Return?
Comparing gold against the top cryptocurrency by market cap, we can see that the bullish impulse that began in 2019 in gold kept running far beyond what Bitcoin was capable of. Despite this, this was the birth of the digital gold narrative, as trade tensions between the US and China increased under the Trump administration.
With currencies beginning to fall apart across the globe, gold is also suddenly rebounding alongside stocks, oil, Bitcoin, and other assets.
