Crypto prices had fallen by at least 10% or more after the last three Fed meetings in March, May and June. In June, when the Federal Reserve raised interest rates, the value of Bitcoin fell by more than 70%.
Interestingly, the crypto market has been moving in sync with the stock market for the past few months. The correlation between Bitcoin and the stock market continues to show that the crypto and stock markets are moving in the same direction.
