Bitcoin is approaching $24,000, and the price of BTC has been rising. This week’s contract expiry might result in a $200 million gain for bulls.
The last time Bitcoin (BTC) closed above $24,000 was 51 days ago, which makes even the strongest bullish trader wonder whether a sustained rebound is possible. Bulls, though, get the dominant position on Friday’s $510 million BTC contract expiry despite the disappointing price movement.
Investors have been lowering their risk exposure as the Federal Reserve increases interest rates and unfolds its historic $8.9 trillion balance sheet. As a result, the Bloomberg Commodity Index (BCOM), which tracks movements in the prices of lean pigs, maize, gold, natural gas, and crude oil, has decreased by 9% over the same time frame.
As Mary Daly, the president of the San Francisco Fed stated on August 2 that the central bank’s war over inflation is “far from done,” traders have continued to look for safety in cash and U.S. Treasury positions. However, the effects of tighter monetary policy on inflation, employment, and the global economy have not yet been determined.
