Bitcoin has gone into a tailspin this year along with the broader market crash. The price of this cryptocurrency has nosedived more than 57% this year to $20K at the time of writing. Notably, bitcoin hit an all-time high of $67.5K in November 2021.

Against this scenario, analysts at Deutsche Bank – Marion Laboure and Galina Pozdnyakova – commented that the cryptocurrency market is “highly fragmented,” and it may continue to fall in the near future. However, they believe bitcoin might tap $28,000 by the year’s end, if it keeps its close correlation to U.S. stocks, per an article on

Deutsche Bank’s experts highlighted that bitcoin’s price charts have been so far moving quite closely with U.S. stocks. Laboure and Pozdnyakova expect the S&P 500 to reach its January levels by the end of 2022, and the key cryptocurrency bitcoin could follow suit. If that holds good, bitcoin could jump to even beyond $28,000.
