The cryptocurrency has likely been affected by a decline in the hereditary market. Over the past few months, Bitcoin has shown a high correlation with the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100.
The S&P 500 has seen significant gains since the beginning of July 2022 after a major bearish price action took it from around 4,800 to its current levels around 3,800. In the past week, the index has taken a bearish turn that seems to contribute to BTC’s price-breaking ability to break resistance at $ 22,000.
On the other hand, the crypto market has seen positive developments.

This metric has tended to the downside since mid-2021 but has begun to show possible signs of recovery over the past month. Bitcoin transaction fees have increased over the last 30 days perhaps suggesting more online activity and increasing the shift of future appreciation.

However, network performance is still low in higher time frames. Additional data from analyst Ali Martinez records a decrease in the number of new BTC addresses. This metric stands at an 11-month low with a sharp increase in the BTC stock sent to crypto exchanges. This often translates to sales pressure. The analyst said:
