&l;p&g;Bitcoin started its free-fall in mid-December when it traded just under $20,000 until a few days ago when it &l;a href=&q;http://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2018/02/05/bitcoin-continues-falling-after-being-hit-with-more-bad-news/&q;&g;bottomed right around $6,000&l;/a&g;. The 70% drop ended just after the Dow 30 Industrials had its first 1,000 point plus decline last week. If there ever was a time for Bitcoin to continue its &l;a href=&q;http://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2018/01/16/12-reasons-bitcoin-could-fall-below-1000/&q;&g;slide to $1,000 or less&l;/a&g; this seemed like this was the &a;ldquo;right&a;rdquo; time. However, Bitcoin outperformed not just the equity markets from Tuesday to Friday but also gold and the U.S. 10 year Treasury bond.
