Recently, Bitcoin has once again captured the attention of investors and enthusiasts alike. This recent rally, however, has proven to be less about the much-anticipated spot ETF developments and more about the powerful macroeconomic forces at play.
What triggered this surge? Well, it all started with a surprising twist in Treasury supply estimates and a dovish stance from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).
The cryptocurrency market, often dancing to its own tune, has shown a remarkable sensitivity to broader financial market dynamics. In this case, the smaller-than-expected Treasury supply estimate for the first quarter of the year, coupled with the dovish FOMC’s message, resulted in a dramatic drop in bond yields.
As a chain reaction, this sent risk assets soaring, and Bitcoin was no exception. It’s become increasingly evident that the much-anticipated spot ETF approval is the key to kickstarting the next exponential rally.
Analyzing the 32k and 36k Levels For Bitcoin
According to insights from QCP Capital Broadcast, their analysis emphasizes the significance of the 36k level in Bitcoin’s price trajectory. Today, Bitcoin kissed the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and the upper channel trendline before retracing.
While the spotlight has been on-the-spot ETF approval, this rally underscores that macroeconomic factors are the driving force behind the recent price action. The hope now is that this could be the beginning of a broader uptrend in global equities and bonds, with the macroeconomic landscape showing signs of correction from overly bearish bond sentiment.
As Bitcoin’s spot price continues its ascent, various derivatives in the cryptocurrency market are displaying remarkable characteristics. Perpetual funding, term forwards, implied volatility, and risk reversals all exhibit elevated levels. Those positioned for an implied upside breakout are eagerly awaiting the spot ETF approval, which could potentially send prices surging even further.
QCP concluded by asserting that the coming days hold significant events that could impact the cryptocurrency market. After the closing bell, investors are keenly watching the earnings reports from Coinbase and Apple, and tomorrow, the release of the Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) data is expected to provide further fuel for the market. These events could have a substantial effect on implied volatility and the lofty call premiums being observed.
