Crypto markets pick up as China eases lockdowns

Bitcoin yesterday extended its streak of declining weekly returns to a record nine weeks, with the price of the largest cryptocurrency closing the week at just above the $29k mark. Previously, Bitcoin had never gone through more than six weeks in a row without a positive return. 

However, in contrast to recent weekly closes, Bitcoin at least managed to limit the downside and reverse course immediately. It’s currently changing hands for $30,600 – up 5 per cent over the past 24 hours. Can Bitcoin avoid 10 weeks of red?

Elsewhere, Ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies are also enjoying a strong start to the week. The price of Ethereum is currently $1900, up 6.6 per cent, while Uniswap and Chainlink have both seen gains of more than 10 per cent since this time yesterday. 

Financial markets generally seem to be rallying across the board this morning, carrying over from the end of last week, with analysts crediting much of the improved performance with China’s move to ease the severe lockdown restrictions in both Beijing and Shanghai that had been weighing heavy on the economy. Can the world’s so-called growth engine get back on track and start powering markets back to positive performance?
