Bitcoin fell below $31,000 for the first time since July 2021, bringing its slump from a November record high to more than 50% amid an international flight from risky investments.

In New York, the world’s most significant digital token plunged as much as 11% to $30,339. The intraday decline is the greatest since January 21.

Bitcoin’s more than 30% loss in 2022 contrasts with a more than 10% decline in global bonds and equities and a 2.5 percent increase in gold. Bitcoin’s latest slump puts it at risk of dropping out of the trading range in 2022, thus reversing the most recent bull run that pushed the currency to over $69,000 in November. With a 40-day correlation of 0.82 to the S&P 500 stock index.
