Bitcoin experienced a deep correction that took it below USD 33,000. USD 30,000 is a key level, will it collapse?
Yes, Bitcoin has fallen below USD 33,000 for the first time in over a week. Specifically, the crypto leader is trading at USD 32,000, after a drop of 8.9% and 19.5% over the last 24 hours and 7 days, respectively. Can Bitcoin’s correction be deeper?

Bitcoin corrects and institutional investors cash in on gains
The crypto market panics as the price of the crypto leader has declined nearly 20% over the past 7 days according to CoinMarketCap. Is a deeper correction in store for Bitcoin?
According to CoinTelegraph analyst Michaël van de Poppe stated that „if the $30,000 area does not hold, a further correction towards $24,000 is likely, which would mean a 40% retracement from recent highs.“
Therefore, we must remain alert for a possible drop below USD 30,000. On the other hand, it is worth noting that some institutional investors have taken profits as crypto retreats.
Specifically, according to CoinShares, outflows have been observed from institutional products indicating that gains have been made amid Bitcoin’s correction.
As this happens, JPMorgan asserts that Bitcoin is not a hedge against market crashes. In fact, strategists John Normand and Federico Manicardi asserted that the leading crypto is the „least reliable hedge during periods of acute market stress.“
The thing is, Normand and Manicardi’s view seems to differ from the other JPMorgan strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, who believe Bitcoin is driving investors away from precious metals.
