Bitcoin slides toward worst day in 3 weeks, leads crypto’s Friday skid along with stock market

(MarketWatch) — Bitcoin prices on Friday were slumping, on track for the steepest slide in three weeks, with the decline in the world’s No. 1 crypto coming in tandem with a retreat in the stock market. 

Crypto assets aren’t meant to be correlated to traditional asset, but increasingly a stumble in risk has coincided with shifts in sentiment around digital assets. 

At last check, bitcoin prices BTCUSD, -1.06% were down more than 6% on Friday, changing hands at $35,412.47 on CoinDesk. The world’s No. 2 crypto, Ether ETHUSD, -0.25% on the Ethereum blockchain, was down over 7%, at $2,160.65. 

Declines for both Ether and bitcoin would be about the worst daily slumps since late May. 

The global crypto market was down 6%, according to CoinMarketCap.com

The declines in digital assets come as the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.58% was down more than 400 points, or 1.2%, the S&P 500 index SPX, -1.31% was sinking 0.9%, aiming to avoid its first close below its 50-day moving average since March 8, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.92% was trading 0.7% lower after earlier this week registering its first all-time closing high since April 26.
