Analyst Notes: “Bitcoin is slightly higher as the cryptoverse embraces BlackRock’s ETF filing and as EDX crypto exchange goes live. ​ Given the risk-off start to the trading week, Bitcoin’s slight gain is a positive sign. ​ Bitcoin still seems poised to consolidate here but it could start to muster up a rally if gold remains under pressure and if investors grow cautious with the potential headwinds for the stock market” said Edward Moya, Senior Market Analyst at OANDA

Crypto analyst Michael Van de Poppe said Bitcoin is showing some interesting structures. It has managed to stay above the 200-Week EMA and has bounced back convincingly from that region. Additionally, the previous resistance level has now turned into a support level, paving the way for a potential new rally.  “Coming weeks we’ll see, but another rally to $38K is on the cards.”

He added, “Blackrock applies for Spot ETF.  Deutsche Bank joins for a digital asset license. Fidelity, Citadel & Schwab create exchange.  And you think Bitcoin goes to $12K. F**k off, buy your Altcoins and wait. This is your time.

Data analytics firm Santiment reported significant price pumps across the board thanks to Bitcoin’s recent jump back above $28.8k and Ethereum’s return above $1,820. Santiment’s coverage of 2,648 crypto assets revealed that trading volume is up by 30.2% compared to the past week, and discussion rates have significantly increased.
