Bitcoin $BTC reaction following the news that Biden is leaving the race was heavily scrutinized by market participants for 2 reasons

1/ It is the only risk assets traded 24/7 and thus reacting to news over the week-end; 2/ Bitcoin is now seen as a "pro-Trump" asset (i.e of it goes down that means that markets see a lower chance for Trump to be re-elected). While the initial reaction to the news was BTC going down almost $1,000 in a matter of minutes, BTC bounced back later on to trade at the highest level of the week-end (around $68k). So if Bitcoin is any guide, the Trump election trade does not seem to have been damaged... Source chart: coingecko
