Crypto Technical Analysis Report |23rd June-2023

On Thursday, the crypto markets experienced a third consecutive day of gains, with the announcement of BlackRock’s plan to create a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) providing support. Despite facing regulatory scrutiny in the United States, BlackRock, as the largest asset manager in the world, filed for the creation of the ETF last week. If approved, this ETF would enable investors to gain exposure to the crypto asset class. The market cap of Bitcoin, the world’s largest crypto, was around $588 billion. Bitcoin’s dominance is currently 49.55%, an increase of 0.32% over the day. 

On June 22, Bitcoin remained close to the $30,000 level as traders looked for chances to take advantage of the market dip. The previous day, Bitcoin had made an impressive comeback, reclaiming the $30,000 threshold for the first time since mid-April. This resurgence in price sparked optimism among traders who anticipated a modest correction, presenting attractive opportunities for entering long positions. The recent period of sideways movement in Bitcoin’s price had been accompanied by low volatility, a pattern often observed before significant price swings. Glassnode, a blockchain analytics firm, noted that such tight trading ranges have historically preceded substantial and volatile movements in either direction. This surge caught many traders off guard, resulting in around $125 million worth of leveraged short futures contracts being liquidated. Pinpointing the exact cause of the rally is complex, but some analysts suggest that it may be related to the anticipation of institutional investors entering the market if Blackrock’s application for an exchange-traded fund (ETF) receives regulatory approval. The potential inflow of institutional funds through an approved Bitcoin ETF is seen as a significant factor that could have contributed to the sudden price increase.   

On June 19, Ether (ETH) found strong support around the $1,700 level, which sparked significant buying activity. The bulls continued to accumulate and drove the price above the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $1,781 on June 20. This breakthrough indicated a weakening bearish pressure in the market. The bullish momentum gained further strength on June 21 when the ETH/USDT pair broke above the downtrend line. With these positive developments, it is anticipated that the pair will continue to rally and may encounter psychological resistance around the $2,000 mark. Traders and investors are closely monitoring these price movements as Ether’s upward trajectory suggests a potential bullish trend in the near term.

On the macro front, BlackRock’s application for a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) has sparked a wave of interest from other financial firms looking to enter the market. WisdomTree, an asset management fund based in New York, filed a new application for a Bitcoin ETF on June 21, following BlackRock’s lead. Invesco, an investment manager, also reactivated its application for a spot ETF shortly after. These announcements have had a positive impact on investor sentiment, leading to a short squeeze and attracting additional buying interest from traders who may have been waiting on the sidelines. The series of events in recent days have significantly increased buying interest in Bitcoin, causing its market dominance to rise above 50% on June 19. This indicates that Bitcoin remains the preferred choice among investors in the crypto market.
