Bitcoin increased in value from $59,000 to $61,800 as jobless claims unexpectedly increased in the previous few months.

With 315,000 in March and only 175,000 in April, nonfarm payrolls fell well short of analysts' forecasts of 238,000.

Additionally, unemployment increased to 3.9% from 3.8%, and when the data was released, equities and bitcoin both increased.

The Dow Jones and S&P 500 are up 1.4% and the Nasdaq is up 2.16% today, respectively, as the economy's weakness may portend rate cuts sooner rather than later.

At one point today, the dollar stock index (DXY) fell to 104.2 from above 106 on Wednesday following Fed Chair Jerome Powell's dovish speech.

In a possible gentle easing ahead of rate cuts, the Fed is lowering its asset sale, with the yield on the ten-year Treasury falling by 1.5% today.

Next month, the European Central Bank (ECB) is anticipated to make cuts, and maybe the Federal Reserve Banks in the fall as well.

Given that outflows decreased to $34 million from $560 million on Wednesday, the spike in bitcoin may also be exclusive to cryptocurrencies.

The market is currently recovering as the macro picture gets better and the currency gets weaker, so it might have been a concession.
