MicroStrategy falls as much as 18% Tuesday

Meanwhile, bitcoin fell on Tuesday, sliding below $63,000 at one point, about $10,000 below last week’s record high. MicroStrategy tends to trade in tandem with the cryptocurrency.

Key catalysts such as spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds and the upcoming “halving” event in April — which cuts the bitcoin mining reward in half to limit the supply — have helped buoy the flagship crypto and the stocks tied to its performance.

MicroStrategy’s stock is now up 124% this year compared to bitcoin’s 50% run. Both began turning lower last week as investors took profits.
