  • Bitcoin increased by 10% and Ethereum rose by 14.7% in the past week.
  • BTC and ETH were trending over the S&P 500 at press time.

Bitcoin [BTC] and Ethereum [ETH] have displayed strong price performances in recent weeks, surpassing some previous all-time highs.

These upward trends in the prices of these crypto assets have caused them to diverge from the S&P 500. What implications could this have for the crypto assets?

The current trends in the S&P 500, Bitcoin, and Ethereum suggest a lack of correlation between equities and crypto assets. This divergence raises the likelihood of a sustained bull market.

The ongoing bull trends in BTC and ETH over the past few weeks serve as an indicator that the market could potentially be transitioning into a full-fledged bull market soon.
