What Happened: While U.S. stocks rallied on Monday, the momentum fizzled out after the closing bell. At press time, S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures were down 0.3% and 0.7%, respectively.

Risk assets like Bitcoin failed to attract investors and will remain a “choppy trade” throughout the summer, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA.

“Bitcoin prices remain weak despite a broad risk rally on Wall Street. It looks like most crypto traders are hesitant to buy the dip, which most likely means that the bottom has not been made,” said Moya.

Moya said the apex coin could rebound once Wall Street believes the Federal Reserve will stop hiking rates near the 3% level.

Bitcoin Investor sentiment has hit a “rock bottom” and is at its lowest since the Black Thursday in March 2020, said Santiment on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).

“Weak hands may continue to present opportunities for the patient,” said the market intelligence platform.

Bitcoin and Ethereum losing some sheen have taken place in the backdrop of diminishing returns, Glassnode noted in a weekly post.

The apex coin's compound annual growth rate has dropped from 200% in 2015 to less than 50%, and it has lost 1% of its market value each day over the last month alone, according to Glassnode.

The four-year CAGR for Ethereum over the last 12 months has dropped to just 28% per year from 100% per year, while Bitcoin’s has fallen to 36% per year.

The most important support level for Bitcoin is between $29,330 and $30,200, where 1.23 million addresses hold almost 850,000 BTC, chartist Ali Martinez tweeted.

Bitcoin “needs to hold above this demand wall for a chance of rebounding. Failing to do so can lead to the continuation of the downtrend,” said Martinez.
