  • Markets are always uncertain, but there are certain junctures where your decision making is made very easy. We argue that market participants are faced with such a scenario now.
  • BTC and ETH are currently trying to reclaim their 200d simple moving average, after touching them for the first time since October 2023.
  • Although Bitcoin ETF flows continue to be strong, BTC is currently plagued with the distribution of seized BTC from governments and Mt. Gox. ETH spot ETFs offer the only significantly bullish narrative for majors in the short term.
  • The reaction to any positive news regarding spot ETH ETFs will act as a barometer for market sentiment – “it is not the news that matters, but the reaction to the news”.
