Yield Correlation

Recent strength in the US dollar was a most likely contributing factor to weakness in the Bitcoin market.

Meanwhile, increasing bond yields also contributed to the downside pressure on the cryptocurrency. Lots of speculators concur that financiers jumped into riskier properties like Bitcoin in 2020 due to the fact that of negative-yielding debt in shorter-maturity bonds and below 1 percent returns in the longer-dated Treasuries.

The newfound sentimental connection between Bitcoin and yields proved frustrating as the percentage-returns on the US 10-year Treasury note surged above 1 percent for the very first time given that March. The recovery began after Democrats won crucial Senate run-offs recently, stimulating hopes that the incoming Joe Biden administration will bring extra stimulus to increase the US economy.

The last 24 hours saw yields correcting lower, which, in turn, prompted Bitcoin to pare its early-week losses. Since Wednesday, the US10Y was rising all-over again, signifying possible downside correction ahead for the cryptocurrency.

Felipe Villarroel, a portfolio supervisor at TwentyFour Asset Management, sees the yields increasing to 1.5 percent by the end of this year on modified US development expectations. That would increase the US Treasury supply greater than expected, driving prices lower and yields higher.
