Bitcoin’s Volatility is Approaching Record Levels

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Bitcoin’s value remained mostly stagnant in the two weeks leading up to its sharp decline on June 7, reaching record lows in terms of volatility compared to any other 15-day period in its history.

According to Rapha Zagury, chief investment officer at Swan Bitcoin, the period between May 24 and June 7 was in the bottom 6% of occurrences in terms of volatility.

Zagury highlighted this by referencing the horizontal blue line representing the 15-day rolling volatility number of 23%, which was close to the lower level.

This period saw Bitcoin trading in a tight range, with fluctuations of only 7%, between $66,936 and $71,656. However, after this period, Bitcoin’s price dropped sharply by 3.33%, falling to $69,264 according to CoinMarketCap data.

This decline was triggered by the publication of a stronger-than-expected Employment Situation Summary Report in the United States, suggesting that the Federal Reserve may not cut interest rates on June 11.
