Despite the global economy being virtually frozen, the S&P 500 and all other benchmark stock indices have been able to rally today, smashing through critical technical levels and potentially creating shockwaves that boost Bitcoin.

This rally has allowed the S&P 500 to surmount two key moving averages that were previously suppressing its price action, leading some analysts to believe that it will see further upside in the mid-term.

At the time of writing, the S&P 500 is trading up just under 2 percent at its current price of 3,010.

Today's upswing has allowed the S&P 500 to surmount its 100-day and 200-day moving averages, which had both previously been strong resistance levels.

Many investors have been noting that Bitcoin's swift rebound from its mid-March lows of $3,800 has confirmed its status as a "Safe haven" asset.

Despite this, it is important to note that this recovery has come about in tandem with that seen by the S&P 500 and the aggregated equities market.

The below chart from the analytics platform Skew shows that the two assets have continued seeing a striking correlation - with Bitcoin's recovery simply being more magnified than that of the stock market.

If the S&P 500's break above its 200-day moving average sparks a short-term uptrend, this could bolster where Bitcoin heads next.
