Bitcoin's price hits 1-month low as US stock prices fall

Bitcoin's price fell to a one-month low on Wednesday amid a broader decline across stock markets.

The macro picture was a cloudy one as US stock markets closed Wednesday. The Federal Reserve, in newly-published minutes, indicated that it may raise interest rates sooner than previously expected, as noted by Bloomberg. At the same time, the Fed floated the potential for a balance-sheet reduction in the wake of such moves.
