Daily digest market movers: Bitcoin spot ETFs record seven days streak outflows

  • Mt.Gox, a defunct cryptocurrency exchange platform exploited in 2014, announced plans to repay Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash to creditors in July. The exchange's users had previously suffered losses totaling nearly $9 billion in cryptocurrencies. This announcement may have sparked FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt), contributing to the 4.6% price decline Bitcoin suffered on Monday.

Technical analysis: BTC breaks below descending wedge 

Bitcoin price broke below the descending wedge on Monday, declining approximately 7.5% from its daily high of $63,369 to a low of $58,402. After retesting its crucial weekly support near $58,375, BTC rebounded by 3.3%, closing at $60,293. BTC trades at around $61,000 at the time of writing, edging up more than 1% on Tuesday.

If the weekly support at $58,375 holds, Bitcoin could encounter resistance at several key levels.

  1. The lower trendline of the descending wedge, which sits around $62,000.
  2. The daily resistance and the upper trendline of the descending wedge, which hovers near $63,956.
  3. The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level and the weekly resistance are at $66,631 and $67,147, respectively.

A breakthrough above these resistance barriers could propel BTC's price towards retesting the next weekly resistance at $71,280.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently in the oversold territory on the daily chart, while the Awesome Oscillator (AO) is below its mean level. For bulls to stage a convincing comeback, both momentum indicators must sustain positions above their respective thresholds of 50 for RSI and zero for AO. Still, the RSI is about to exit the oversold level after briefly dipping into it, a sign to cover shorts and open longs. This scenario could bolster the ongoing recovery rally.

However, if BTC closes below the $58,375 level and forms a lower low on the daily time frame, it could indicate that bearish sentiment persists. Such a development may trigger a 3% decline in Bitcoin’s price, revisiting its previous low of $56,552 from May 1.

Yes. The first Bitcoin futures ETF in the US was approved by the US Securities & Exchange Commission in October 2021. A total of seven Bitcoin futures ETFs have been approved, with more than 20 still waiting for the regulator’s permission. The SEC says that the cryptocurrency industry is new and subject to manipulation, which is why it has been delaying crypto-related futures ETFs for the last few years.

Bitcoin spot ETF has been approved outside the US, but the SEC is yet to approve one in the country. After BlackRock filed for a Bitcoin spot ETF on June 15, the interest surrounding crypto ETFs has been renewed. Grayscale – whose application for a Bitcoin spot ETF was initially rejected by the SEC – got a victory in court, forcing the US regulator to review its proposal again. The SEC’s loss in this lawsuit has fueled hopes that a Bitcoin spot ETF might be approved by the end of the year.
