Bitcoin showed early signs of decoupling from Wall Street after surging to $11,820, while the US stock indexes slumped yesterday.
Bitcoin finally made a move in the past 24 hours and surged to a new 7-week high of over $11,800. Interestingly, BTC’s price increase contrasted with the US stock markets as the three most prominent indexes closed yesterday’s trading session with serious losses.
