surged past $25,000 Sunday night, and peaked at $25,119, its highest point since June 12, according to CoinDesk data. It quickly retreated, though, and was last around $24,850 at midnight Eastern.

Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has sunk by nearly 50% year to date, but has rallied 15% over the past month. Investors have apparently been encouraged by better-than-expected U.S. inflation data and an improving stock market; Wall Street just finished its fourth straight week of gains, a streak not seen since November 2021.
