Bitcoin is 'close to a party,' predicts crypto trading expert – Finbold – Finance in Bold

Cryptocurrency luminary Michaël van de Poppe has offered a keen analysis on the current state of Bitcoin (BTC), delivering his insights on August 9. 

With Bitcoin hovering around the $29,800 mark, Van de Poppe observed a pivotal juncture and is ‘close to a party’ as the digital currency aspired to reclaim the psychological threshold of $30,000.

 A notably bullish sentiment emerged from Poppe’s assessment, emphasizing that the ‘party starts above’  $29,800 resistance barrier transitions into a solid support foundation.

Bitcoin’s recent trajectory has seen a decline since its zenith of $31,818 on July 13. This downturn materialized within the confines of a descending parallel channel, culminating in a nadir of $28,585 on August 1.

It’s noteworthy, however, that despite this retracement, the $28,800 horizontal support level retained its significance, validating its importance through multiple tests. This validation manifested through the creation of elongated lower wicks, a telling sign of intensified buying pressure.

BTC price analysis

Regarding price action, Bitcoin exhibited a verdant shift, witnessing a more than 2% surge over the past 24 hours. This upswing in value can be attributed to the mounting optimism surrounding the potential approval of a Bitcoin spot ETF (Exchange-Traded Fund).

Of particular intrigue is Bitcoin’s resilience in adhering to a relatively tight trading range spanning from $29,000 to $30,000. This prolonged consolidation phase mirrors the broader sentiment pervading the cryptocurrency landscape, as industry experts underscore the imperative for regulatory clarity, particularly within the United States. 

The anticipation of regulatory elucidation stands poised to act as a catalyst for a bullish leap beyond the $30,000 threshold.

Bitcoin ETF fervour

At the fulcrum of regulatory prospects lies the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which presently holds sway over a slew of applications for a spot Bitcoin ETF. Notably, two prominent figures in the cryptocurrency realm are now making public prognostications about the SEC’s eventual greenlighting of these ventures.

Michael Novogratz, the chief architect of crypto investment powerhouse Galaxy Digital, recently asserted that the advent of a Bitcoin ETF is imminent, forecasting a launch within the forthcoming four to six months. This proclamation draws from inside sources, underpinning investor speculations that such an approval would beckon an inflow of institutional capital into Bitcoin.

The ongoing race for the inaugural ETF endorsement is fervent, with contenders vying to capture the lion’s share of market enthusiasm right from the outset. A prevailing belief among industry pundits is that the SEC’s approval won’t be a solitary instance, but rather encompass multiple approvals in tandem. Cathie Wood, the visionary CEO at ARK Investment Management, shared this perspective, suggesting that the SEC’s eventual decision might encompass more than one Bitcoin ETF.

Wood’s own Ark21 Shares ETF, finds itself technically first in line for regulatory approval on August 13. Nevertheless, the consensus among analysts leans toward an extension of this approval date, a projection aligned with the broader anticipation surrounding the SEC’s deliberations.
