Bitcoin Fails At $10,800

As reported yesterday, Bitcoin had reacted positively on news that US President Donald Trump left the hospital after a few days and returned to the White House. The primary cryptocurrency, copying gains on Wall Street, accelerated in price and peaked at $10,800.

However, the situation has reversed in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin was unable to maintain its run and dropped sharply from $10,750 to an intraday low of $10,525 (on Binance). Despite recovering some ground since then to above $10,600, BTC is still down by over 1% in a day.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 went down by about 1.4%, while Nasdaq lost nearly 1.6%.
