Bitcoin Poised to Resume Rally: 4 Solid Stocks to Buy

Cryptocurrencies have been suffering lately after a solid 2023 and first quarter. Bitcoin (BTC), particularly, was leading from the front, which also saw the world’s most popular cryptocurrency hit an all-time high of $73,750 in March.

However, the rally appears to have stalled since then and cryptocurrencies have been suffering, with Bitcoin trading sharply below $70,000 for most of May. June, too, hasn’t been any different. On Jun 13, Bitcoin fell below $67,000 before recovering some of the losses and was trading at $67,100

A lot of factors have been behind this recent decline in Bitcoin. The Bitcoin halving event in April was one of the major reasons behind pulling back the price of the cryptocurrency.

The halving event, which happens every four years, reduces the block reward by 50%, with the goal of capping the total supply of Bitcoin at 21 million coins. This reduction in the rate of new Bitcoin supply usually boosts demand for cryptocurrencies, often leading to a price increase.

Bitcoin was anticipated to regain momentum following the end of the halving event but it didn’t. Also, the Wall Street rally paused in April due to growing concerns over rising inflation and potential interest rate hikes.

Although inflation eased in April and May, alleviating fears of another rate hike, lack of clarity on the Fed’s rate cut plans dented investors’ confidence. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said after the FOMC meeting that the Fed sees only one rate cut this year, significantly down from the three projected in its March meeting.

Powell also said that although inflation has declined sharply over the past year, it remains sharply above the Fed’s 2% target. Hence, the Fed is likely to keep the interest rate higher for a longer period.

Higher interest rates adversely impact growth assets such as technology stocks, consumer discretionary stocks and cryptocurrencies.

However, even then experts believe that Bitcoin has tremendous potential and the recent decline is temporary. Year to date, Bitcoin has gained 45.5% after rallying more than 207% in 2023.
