3 Stocks to Watch as Bitcoin Remains Above the $27,000 Mark – Yahoo Finance


Bitcoin (BTC) is way off its 2021 peak and has been falling since hitting a 52-week high in July 2023. The price fluctuations in this benchmark crypto have also weighed down on other cryptocurrencies, and the digital currency market has been turbulent this year. In an environment of constantly rising interest rates, Bitcoin has struggled to attract speculators.
However, being the most well-known and “reliable” digital coin, BTC has solidified its position within the market itself. At the beginning of the year, it accounted for about 38% of the entire crypto market. As of Oct 10, per CoinGecko data, it has extended its share to control more than 48.6% of the market. In comparison, the second most well-known crypto, Ethereum (ETH), has lost a major chunk of its market cap. In an uncertain environment, investors turn less speculative and rush to safety. Crypto investors are no different, just that Bitcoin has been making the most of this opportunity at the cost of altcoins.
The crypto market has rebounded from the 2022 rout, and BTC’s revival peaked in July at a 90% appreciation in price. However, it has now settled back down to 67%. Since late September, it has been hovering above the $27,000 mark, almost hitting $28,000 on Oct 7. In this light, with growing institutional acceptance for crypto across geographies, the benchmark digital currency might be entering a period of less volatility and sustained growth. Multiple traditional financial houses applying for a Bitcoin ETF have also acted as a tailwind. The time maybe ripe to closely monitor a few stocks heavily exposed to BTC.
