Bitcoin showed enormous promise on October 4th and 5th by reflecting a 5% profit and shattering the $20,00 hindrance.
According to Senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, Mike McGlone, October 2022 can be the most rewarding month for Bitcoin since 2014. The mean profits derived for the month stand at 20 percent, with commodities slowly seeming to reach their highest point. Bitcoin showed enormous promise on October 4th and 5th by reflecting a 5% profit and shattering the $20,00 hindrance. The move also liquidated $75 million worth of leverage short (bear) positions and allowed some traders to estimate a possible rally to $28k. While the increased interest rates internationally are pushing the pressure on assets backward, Bitcoin is raising investment as compared to other commodities and tech stocks like Tesla.

While the price movements in crypto markets are better than in conventional markets, the trade volumes have surged to all-time highs following Kucoin‘s implementation of a series of 5th-anniversary contests.
A correlation of +1 between the conventional and crypto markets means that the two distinct assets are synonymous, resulting in a ten percent increase in Bitcoin for a ten percent raise in the price of gold.
