Role of Exchanges in BTC Spot ETF Trading


Recommended Posts

This news about the supposed approval of a BlackRock ETF, which was later confirmed as false, has had significant repercussions in the cryptocurrency space.

 

 Earlier today, Cointelegraph reported the SEC's approval of a BlackRock ETF, triggering substantial market reactions due to the anticipation surrounding Bitcoin ETFs. However, this news turned out to be fake, resulting in numerous traders facing liquidations.

Now, let's consider a hypothetical scenario where this news was accurate, and the price successfully broke through the 30k range. In this case, the speculation of Bitcoin reaching $100k would have appeared more feasible.

For those who had taken long positions in the market, this would have led to significant profits, while those in short positions would have faced unfavourable circumstances and those who have been using different strategies to accumulate would also be in significant profits well.

BlackRock's CEO, as reported by FOX, stated that today's rally surpassed mere rumours of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval.

Black Rock CEO reply

Now, that we have seen how impactful this news could be, one must consider how such developments can affect them. Will these events create a positive influence, motivating people to seek out Exchanges to trade Bitcoin, or will they continue trading as usual, seemingly unaffected by such news? What will be the basic Role of Exchanges in the long run?

The role of exchanges in BTC spot ETF trading cannot be overemphasized. Large volume of users embracing crypto do so by buying their BTC from one exchange or the other. Similarly, exchange enhance the liquidity of BTC ETFs which is a very vital indicator for investors as it ensures they can enter and exit position without causing significant price flunctuations.

So that means exchanges would play a vital role when the ETF Is finally approved. It's nice that there are still good exchanges that stand out at this point that will play a vital role in the coming big news we all have been waiting for. Coupled with the fact some exchanges also have numerous means of trading BTC, just like BItget has both hot copy trading and normal copy trading and also some Products that could be used to trade and earn passively. So yeah, I believe there will be a significant increase in people using exchanges to trade

Well, don't forget that BTC spot ETF will mostly be traded on stock exchanges, trust funds institutions and major financial institutions with state-backed regulation. What BTC ETF entails is like trading the paper version of a digital currency; it gives legitimacy to the underlying token or coin and incidentally increase acceptability and supply. 

What exchanges can do right now in preparation for trading BTC spot ETF is to invest in capacity building of their ecosystem to be able to compete favourably with these institution when the trading finally resumes.

Bitcoin Breaks Psychological 30k Level as Spot ETF Approval Hopes Grow
Oct 23, 2023 7:52 PM +02:00

A review of the week in crypto assets | IG Bank Switzerland

BITCOIN, CRYPTO KEY POINTS:

  • Bitcoin Flies to 31k as Optimism Improves and Hopes for a Spot BTC Approval Rises.
  • Coinbase is Looking to Make a Final Push on SEC Charges.
  • Bulls Appear in Control of Bitcoin but the RSI Remains a Concern.

BITCOIN RALLY GATHERS PACE AS ETF OPTIMISM BUILDS

Bitcoin prices have continued their upward trajectory following a spike last week on the Blackrock Spot ETF application. The news turned out to be false but optimism continues to grow coupled with positive news for the cyrpto industry as a whole and the result is the current rally beyond the 30k mark.

As you can see from the crypto heatmap above and the majority of coins are higher today while crypto companies appear to be benefitting as well. Coinbase being an example and the reason I am using them lies in the pending court case between the SEC and Coinbase. The crypto platform is expected to make a final case on Tuesday for a judge to hopefully save it from the SEC and the charges of unregistered-securities.

According to sources familiar with the matter the Company is expected to double-down on familiar arguments. The SEC has not shown that any actual contracts existed while violating the “major question doctrine” that says Federal Agencies have no business regulating novel areas that are awaiting congressional action. Coinbase has been making a steady move higher from the back end of last week.

The recent rally has seen a shift in the Crypto fear and greed index which has improved from a 47 reading last week to 53 this week. This is just below the greed area and could be a good sign for both Bitcoin and Crypto markets as a whole.

SPOT ETF APPROVAL COULD SEE HUGE INFLUX OF INSTITUTIONAL FUNDS

The main catalyst for this quarter in my opinion is the spot Bitcoin ETF with the spike last week a sign of the possibilities. We have heard from the Blackrock CEO among others who have said they are fielding an unprecedented number of calls from clients who would like to diversify their portfolios in Crypto as well.

I have spoken about this in length in my Q4 Bitcoin Outlook and it remains my assertion that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be game changer. Some analysts are predicting as much as 10-20% gains in Bitcoin on the immediate approval followed by a massive influx of institutional investors to the crypto market and predominantly Bitcoin of course.

TECHNICAL OUTLOOK AND FINAL THOUGHTS

From a technical standpoint BTCUSD is following the perfect breakout, retest and continuation model following a trendline break. We have no printed two golden cross patterns in quick succession as the 20-day MA has broken above the 50 and 100-day MAs.

A daily candle close above the 30k psychological mark remains key today and loos set to materialize. Immediate resistance rests at around the 31.5K mark and could result in some pullback as the 14-day RSI remains uncomfortably close to highs and may give bulls something to consider moving forward.

Key Levels to Keep an Eye On:

Support levels:

  • 30500
  • 30000
  • 28900

Resistance levels:

  • 31500
  • 32000
  • 32520

It's how this resistance level are now the key level in which people are looking at to short. If it does go lower, they say, "we will go into bearish state." But I'm still optimistic with $45k surge before the next fall. Still, I'll be using my Smart trend to get every curve of the trade

    • Recently, the comments of the Indian billionaire and Kotak Bank CEO Uday Kotak have thrust the status of the US dollar back into the spotlight. Kotak referred to the dollar as the "biggest financial terrorist of the world," a statement that has sparked widespread controversy. At the same time, the Asia-Pacific markets have experienced some unusual stock fluctuations, with the significant stock of Sony drop drawing particular attention. Ryan Anderson will delve into the implications of the remarks of Kotak, explore the stability of the status of the dollar, and examine its impact on the stock market. Questioning Dollar Hegemony The public description of Kotak on the dollar as a "financial terrorist" has, despite his subsequent attempts to soften the statement, raised questions about dollar hegemony. The position of the dollar as the the primary reserve currency of the world has long been considered a cornerstone of the financial system. However, with shifts in the global economic landscape and adjustments in international political relationships, some countries and individuals have begun to question the dominance of the dollar. Ryan Anderson believes that dollar hegemony gives the United States asymmetric power and advantages, even amounting to financial bullying. The comments of Kotak represent dissatisfaction and doubt about dollar hegemony, reflecting the attention and concern of the international community regarding the status of the dollar. Stability of the Status of the Dollar Ryan Anderson points out that despite the doubts surrounding dollar hegemony, there is currently no clear alternative currency, and the dollar still dominates the global financial system. The position of dollar as the reserve currency of the world has historical and institutional advantages, with the position of the United States in the global economic and financial systems being unshakable. Additionally, the liquidity and stability of the dollar are crucial reasons for its stable status. While some countries and regions are making efforts to promote a diversified reserve currency system, replacing the dollar remains fraught with difficulties and challenges. The Stock Fluctuations of Sony Aside from the questions about dollar hegemony, the unusual stock fluctuations of Sony have also garnered widespread market attention. As one of the blue-chip stocks of Japan, the stock movements of Sony have impacted the entire Japanese stock market and even spread to other Asia-Pacific regions. The rapid decline in the stock price of Sony may be influenced by various factors, including market sentiment, internal company issues, and industry competition. Although the stock volatility of Sony may be a short-term phenomenon, Ryan Anderson advises investors to remain vigilant, adjust their investment strategies promptly, and mitigate investment risks. Despite the remarks of Kotak sparking discussions about the status of the dollar, the dollar still firmly holds its dominant position in the global financial system. Ryan Anderson suggests that investors approach market volatility cautiously, adjust their strategies promptly, and stay attuned to changes in global economic and political dynamics to reduce investment risks. Additionally, investors should remain rational and calm during stock market fluctuations, avoiding excessive influence from market sentiment. Rational investing and long-term holding are key to achieving stable returns.

Wave Cancel invalid level: 4926.59 The S&P 500 Elliott Wave Analysis on the daily chart focuses on a trend that is described as impulsive. The primary structure currently observed is gray wave 5, which is situated within the context of orange wave 1. This analysis suggests that following the completion of the current wave, the next anticipated movement will be orange wave 2.   According to the details provided, gray wave 4 appears to have been completed, which sets the stage for gray wave 5 of orange wave 1 to be actively in play. The analysis emphasizes an important invalidation level at 4926.59. If the price reaches or exceeds this level, the current wave structure would be deemed invalid, necessitating a reevaluation of the wave count.   The Elliott Wave Principle, which underpins this analysis, is a form of technical analysis that identifies patterns in market cycles and predicts future market trends by understanding investor psychology and collective behavior. In this context, the S&P 500 daily chart reveals an ongoing impulsive wave (gray wave 5) following the completion of a corrective phase (gray wave 4).   The position of orange wave 1 within the broader structure implies that after the completion of gray wave 5, the market is expected to enter a corrective phase, identified as orange wave 2. The critical level of 4926.59 serves as a crucial marker; reaching this level would invalidate the current wave structure, indicating the need to reassess the wave analysis.   In summary, the S&P 500 analysis on the daily chart provides a detailed and structured outlook on the market's expected movements based on Elliott Wave principles. The current focus is on the progression and completion of gray wave 5 within orange wave 1, with significant attention paid to the invalidation level to ensure the accuracy of the wave count and subsequent market predictions. This meticulous approach helps traders anticipate potential market trends and make informed trading decisions.       S&P 500 Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart, S&P 500 Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: impulsive STRUCTURE:navy blue wave 5 POSITION: gray wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES: gray wave 4 DETAILS:navy blue wave 4 looking completed at 4926.59, now navy blue wave 5  is in play  . Wave Cancel invalid level: 4926.59   The S&P 500 Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart highlights a trend characterized by an impulsive mode. The primary structure currently under observation is navy blue wave 5, which is positioned within gray wave 3. Following this wave, the next anticipated movement is gray wave 4, suggesting a potential upcoming corrective phase.   The details of the analysis indicate that navy blue wave 4 appears to have been completed at the level of 4926.59. This completion marks the transition to navy blue wave 5, which is currently in play. An important aspect of this analysis is the invalidation level set at 4926.59. If the market price reaches or surpasses this level, it would invalidate the current wave structure and necessitate a reassessment of the wave count.   The Elliott Wave Principle, which forms the basis of this analysis, is a widely-used technical analysis tool that seeks to predict future market trends by identifying recurring patterns in market cycles. In the context of the S&P 500 weekly chart, the current focus is on the progression of navy blue wave 5 within gray wave 3. The completion of navy blue wave 4 signals a shift to the final impulsive wave in this cycle before the market is expected to enter the corrective phase identified as gray wave 4.   This analysis provides traders and investors with a structured outlook on the S&P 500’s potential future movements. By identifying key waves and their positions, the analysis helps in understanding the market's direction and making informed trading decisions. The critical invalidation level of 4926.59 serves as a safeguard, ensuring that if the market moves contrary to the predicted wave pattern, adjustments can be made promptly to account for new market conditions.   In summary, the S&P 500 Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart offers a detailed insight into the market’s trend. With navy blue wave 4 completed and navy blue wave 5 currently in play, traders should be prepared for the subsequent corrective phase of gray wave 4.
