The U.S. presidential election continues to shake the market, and today the leading crypto, BTC, experienced a slight setback.
Today the price of the leading crypto, Immediate Edge, fell to USD 12,822 after the U.S. stock market was shaken.
Presidential Election Continues to Shake the Crypto Market
According to Reuters, today JPMorgan analysts said that the re-election of Donald Trump as president of the United States would be the most favorable result for the stock market.
It seems that this was one of the news that shook the market. However, the electoral risk is accompanied by a resurgence of the daily cases of COVID-19 while the economic stimulus negotiations are not showing results.
Thus the Dow Jones closed with a 650-point drop, after having fallen to 965 points. Likewise, the S&P 500 closed with a 1.9% drop.
Meanwhile, the price of Bitcoin also reacted with the stock market and fell up to 1.7%, before recovering to USD 13,000. In other words, the leading crypto managed to hold on to its key levels and recover slightly from the market’s shock.
