ETF News (& Rumors) Continue to Pump the Crypto Market
We have seen another stellar week in the crypto market with Bitcoin up 6% and Ethereum up 12% with Bitcoin ETF news and speculation continuing to pump the market.
The Ethereum Pump this Week (ETH ETF):
The recent surge in Ethereum's price can be primarily attributed to the news about BlackRock's application for an Ethereum ETF (Exchange-Traded Fund). This development has been a significant factor in boosting investor sentiment towards Ethereum. BlackRock, being one of the largest asset managers in the world, filing for an Ethereum ETF is a substantial step towards mainstream adoption of Ethereum as an investment asset and bringing institutional money into the crypto space, making it easier for investors to buy into Ethereum, contributing to the increase in its price.
The Ethereum price notably surged by 10% within 24 hours, with the price crossing the $2,000 mark, indicating a strong positive reaction in the market to this news. This surge is also reflective of a broader increase in interest and confidence in the cryptocurrency market, with Ethereum being a major beneficiary. The move by BlackRock has not only impacted Ethereum but also seems to have injected more FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) into the race to invest in crypto assets, including Bitcoin.
Rumor of Bitcoin ETF Approvals within a Week:
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has one last short window, an eight-day period starting Thursday, if it wants to approve all 12 spot bitcoin (BTC) ETF applications this year, according to two analysts, Eric Balchunas and James Seyffart.
They expect the SEC to ultimately allow all 12 applications to launch their products and wrote that the comment period for the seven applicants ends on Wednesday, which means that the SEC could issue approval orders starting Thursday, Nov. 9 through Nov. 17.
While I don't personally believe we will see the approval of Spot Bitcoin ETFs until early 2024, this news is contributing to the surge in the cryptocurrency market and if this actually happens over the next week, we could see another major surge in the price of Bitcoin and the overall cryptocurrency market.
In other news, Scam Bankman-Fried the former CEO of FTX, was found guilty of all seven charges including securities fraud, money laundering, and five other criminal counts. This ruling has helped improve market sentiment and confidence in the crypto market.
Fear & Greed Index at an All-Time High
All these factors have contributed to the fear and greed index being at one of the highest levels we have seen all year and overall, the sentiment and outlook for the market is very positive.
With Bitcoin trading at $37,094 and the current market sentiment, we could see Bitcoin pass the $40k mark relatively soon!
