In the words of Alkesh Shah and Andrew Moss, “A decelerating positive correlation with SPX/QQQ and a rapidly rising correlation with XAU [gold] indicate that investors may view Bitcoin as a relative safe haven as macro uncertainty continues and a market bottom remains to be seen.”

Bank of America’s analysts Alkesh Shah and Andrew Moss stated that despite the bearish trend in the Bitcoin market, investors consider the token as a "safe haven."

They analyzed Bitcoin’s 40-day market trends and found correlations between the cryptocurrency and gold, thus reinforcing the notion of using Bitcoin as an inflation hedge.

They also noted that a large supply of Bitcoin was transferred from crypto exchanges to personal wallets, with the weekly outflows in October being the highest since June. This may indicate a slight decrease in sell-pressure.

The strategists praised the transparency of blockchain transactions which allowed them to gather data from several crypto exchanges, and added,
