Welcome to the December 2019 Crypto Outlook with Contentworks, an agency specialising in content marketing for financial services, crypto and blockchain. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for many, but will the price of Bitcoin fill traders with festive cheer, or leave them out in the cold? Let’s find out.
Bitcoin had a rough month in November. Its price declined by 17%. In total, the currency has dropped by 21% over the past three months although it has gained by more than 90% year-to-date. This means that it has outperformed stocks and gold. The S&P 500 and the Dow have gained by 25% and 20% respectively while gold has gained by just 14%. The recent decline came as sentiment shifted from volatile assets like crypto and moved to stocks as the market continued to hope that a trade deal between the United States and China will be sealed. That has not happened, seven weeks after the two countries talked about the first phase of the deal.
