  The high-flying assets decline was joined with a drop on Wall Street Thursday – likely owing to the same catalyst. That said, the price drop may further spill into the broader market and punish overall sentiment. The most susceptible among those assets likely being other high-beta stocks and currencies, especially risk-sensitive ones such as the Australian Dollar and New Zealand Dollars.

  Bitcoins psychologically important 50,000 level may be key to near-term price direction. A decisive breach lower would likely open the door for further selling. On the other hand, if bulls manage to defend the level overnight, it may inspire confidence in the longer-term bull narrative and help price recovery. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is nearly in oversold territory, while MACD continues to weaken.
