  Bitcoin reverses ‘bear market’ at $53.5K as Pfizer gains on fresh panic over coronavirus ‘Nu’ variant

  Bitcoin price action steadies after losing almost $6,000 on Nov. 26 as winners and losers from the coronavirus-‘Nu’-variant scare emerge.

  Bitcoin (BTC) stemmed some of its losses as Wall Street opened on Nov. 26 after concern over a new COVID-19 variant spark a global market sell-off.

  Pfizer gains as coronavirus panic sets in

  Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD ending its downturn at just above $53,500 on Bitstamp.

  The pair then added almost $1,500 as some sense of equilibrium returned to crypto markets, trading at around $54,400 at the time of writing.

  Both crypto and traditional assets were rattled on the day thanks to the proliferation of a new COVID-19 variant, designated “Nu,” which some parties claim could pose a problem for vaccine programs.

  Pfizer, one of the major producers of COVID-19 vaccines, conspicuously bucked the nervous market downtrend, up 7% at the Wall Street open. By contrast, the S&P 500 was down 1.5%.

  In what will be familiar to those who witnessed the events of March 2020, Bitcoin thus abandoned its asymmetrical investment traits to fall in line with both equities and the U.S. dollar.

  The drop below $54,000 was accompanied by a familiar cocktail of misgivings from sources, including mainstream media outlets, with CNBC joining Bloomberg in claiming that Bitcoin had “entered bear market territory.”

  “Let's see how the Daily candle closes,” trader and analyst Rekt Capital said in cautious words about the impact of the day‐s moves on Bitcoins longer-term outlook.

  Among crypto analysts and other longtime participants, however, there were still few signs of genuine bearishness.

  “Massive corrections = massive buy opportunities,” Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe summarized.

  We still at +$50K. Really tho. Why are you so hurt?

  While the lows of Nov. 26 have not been seen since mid-October, overall, Bitcoin's performance in Q4 remains not only profitable but fully in line with previous bull market years.

  Amid the panic over spot price, meanwhile, data showed that Nov. 25 marked the day with the largest single on-chain transaction volume in Bitcoins history.
