Bitcoin ETFs Witness 18 Straight Days Of Inflows, Options Traders Eye $100,000

US spot Bitcoin ETFs have experienced a noteworthy streak of net inflows for 18 consecutive days, contributing to the upward momentum of the leading cryptocurrency as it inches closer to its all-time high levels set in March. 

According to Bloomberg data, these ETFs, managed by some of the world’s largest financial institutions, have attracted net subscriptions of $15.6 billion since their launch on January 11, bringing total assets under management to a substantial $62.3 billion.

Record-Breaking Demand For Bitcoin ETFs

According to Bloomberg, the success of Bitcoin ETFs introduced by BlackRock and Fidelity Investments has made them some of the most successful launches in the ETF sector’s history. 

These products have significantly influenced the center of gravity for cryptocurrency investments, shifting it from Asia to the United States.

Sean Farrell, Head of Digital Asset Strategy at Fundstrat, noted the significant inflows into spot Bitcoin ETFs and highlighted that the macroeconomic environment favors the cryptocurrency market. Economic growth is advancing at a “non-recessionary pace” and signs of disinflation persist.

Bitcoin ETFs

Recently, BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust, with $21.4 billion in assets, became the world’s largest Bitcoin fund, surpassing Grayscale’s $20.1 billion Bitcoin trust (GBTC). On the other hand, the Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC), with $12.3 billion in assets, currently holds the third position.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which had been cautious about digital assets, reluctantly permitted spot Bitcoin ETFs in January due to a court reversal in its lawsuit against Grayscale in 2023. 

Although the SEC remains critical of the digital asset industry’s compliance with regulations, recent efforts in Congress to establish clearer legislative frameworks for cryptocurrencies have gained momentum.

BTC Options Traders Target $100.00

In addition to the Bitcoin ETF inflows, options traders are increasingly optimistic about Bitcoin’s future. Open interest is concentrated on call options with strike prices of $75,000, $100,000, and $80,000. 

Luuk Strijers, CEO of Deribit, the largest crypto options exchange, noted the bullish sentiment in the BTC options market. Traders anticipate new all-time highs, driven by strong Bitcoin ETF flows, expectations of US interest rate cuts, the European Central Bank’s rate cuts, and the recent approval of an ETH ETF.

While Bitcoin experienced a minor retreat from its record high of $73,700 set in March, renewed inflows into Bitcoin ETFs and expectations of interest rate cuts have reignited optimism among traders. Call options expiring in late June and December are particularly active, indicating a positive short- and long-term outlook.

Bitcoin ETFs

As of press time, the largest cryptocurrency on the market has successfully consolidated above the $70,000 milestone. Its gains over the past seven days amount to 5%, favoring the price of BTC and resulting in a current value of $71,320.
