Short-term relief in Bitcoin (BTC) prices:
The slight recovery in Bitcoin’s price today from an overnight dip on December 20 was seen as the U.S. dollar weakened following a sudden policy twist from the Bank of Japan (BoJ).
As soon as the Japanese policymakers lifted the cap on bond yields, the yen instantly gained against the U.S. dollar. As of 6:59 a.m. EST, the U.S. dollar index (DXY) was down 0.74%, retreating to lows under 104 and abandoning its attempt at a sustained rally on intraday timeframes.
The short-term benefits from today’s fall in DXY figures have brought relief to Bitcoin enthusiasts today.
