Over the weekend, the crypto markets remained stable. This is also true on July 4, which is Independence Day in the United States. Arthur Hayes, the former CEO of BitMEX derivatives platform, expected a “mega-crypto dump” on July 4. However, it hasn’t happened.
The Bollinger Band’s width has been squeezed due to a drop in Bitcoin’s (BTC), volatility over the past few days. Popular analyst Matthew Hyland believes this indicates an increase in volatility over the coming days.

In the week ended July 3, Bitcoin’s correlation coefficient to the dollar fell to 0.77 below zero. This is the lowest level in 17 months. JP Morgan surveyed a majority of analysts and they expect the dollar will end at or below its current price level of 105. Bitcoin could benefit from any weakness in the dollar.
