Bitcoin lining up the crosshairs on $70,000

June 4, 2024

THE market rejected another push for the $70,000 Bitcoin price level yesterday, a ceiling the market leader hasn’t been able to sustain since the breakout rally on May 20. Bitcoin is trading around $68,900 this morning. 

While Bitcoin is moving mostly sideways, Ethereum is down by roughly 1%, with many younger cryptos also dipping deeper on the day. 

Perhaps unexpectedly, the Fear and Greed has nudged another 2 points deeper into Greed territory this morning. This comes as Bitcoin ETF inflows in the US seems to be on the up again, recording its fifteenth day of positive inflows, yesterday. More on this below.
