Dow Jones Drops Another 1000 Points In A Week, Crypto Markets Don’t Quite Follow


The Dow Jones fell more than 1000 points again today, but the crypto markets seems to be rallying still after the SEC and CFTC hearing, with BTC trading at around $8000.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has dropped another 1,000 points Thursday, Feb. 8, making it the second time in four days that the traditional market has fallen more than 1,000 points.

As the market is experiencing its fifth loss over the past six days, the Boston Globe writes that Friday announcement by the Labor Department that workers’ salaries grew quickly in January may have caused investors to scramble, thinking that interest rate would also rise.

S&P 500Unlike the drop three days ago, which was the largest intraday drop in 6 and a half years, today’s traditional market slump has not correlated with the crypto markets as strongly.

While Bitcoin (BTC) had dropped below $7000 on Feb. 5 when the Dow Jones had dropped about 1,100 points, Bitcoin is now trading at around $8,219.12 according to Coin Market Cap, up 6.08% over a 24-hour period by press time.

Bitcoin ChartsEthereum and Ripple are also trading at $816.98 and $0.80 respectively, up 4.8 and 8.96 percent over a 24-hour period by press time.

The lack of a similar drop in the crypto markets may be due to the lifeline it received after the The Commodities and Future Trading Commission and the US Securities Exchange Commission joint hearing on Tuesday.

Users on Twitter have joked that the recent traditional market volatility has begun to mirror the volatility common to the crypto markets:
