At the time of writing, the Bitcoin price trades at $18,900 with a 1% and 3% loss over the last 24 hours and 7 days, respectively.

Bitcoin Price Stuck In A Range As Global Currencies Trend Downwards Despite this sideways price action and a persistent downside trend across 2022, the Bitcoin price has outperformed other assets in the legacy financial sector.
