Bitcoin ETF Hits Sets New Records 

US Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) continue to provide fundamental tailwinds in favour of the bulls. 

As an interesting data point, in the last seven days we’ve seen just over 2,000 million USD in net buying activity on Bitcoin from these entities in the US. And the momentum doesn’t look like it’s slowing, with the 27th of February producing the largest day of buying from the BlackRock IBIT Bitcoin ETF. 

While this has been positive to see, it’s also important to speculate what could be the implications on the market if these flows slow down? I share my thoughts below. 

Bitcoin – BTC

Bitcoin continuing to hammer higher towards a breakout. For a full breakdown of bullish and bearish scenarios, check out my latest video. Where I did cover looking at option books data, which showed  $60,000-$65,000 as important figures.

Weighing up the market from where we stand is difficult as it seems the ETF may be driving sentiment in the market at this time. This time, from a fundamental perspective, here are two scenarios I would be watching regarding ETF flows moving forward. 

Bullish scenario 

ETF flows remain net buying, and the total volume of Bitcoin ETFs traded daily sustains its current momentum. 

Bearish scenario

Should the ETF flows go neutral or turn net selling, and daily trade volumes remain high, this could be the first sign that the bulls may be taking profits. 

Solana – SOL

A top performer among the higher cap altcoins, Solana is forming some technical structure that is of interest. Notably after the recent move on Bitcoin, Solana has broken a range of consolidation. Below are two potential scenarios from here based on market structure analysis.

Bullish scenario 

Bulls continue to drive the price of Solana higher, with the next technical Fibonacci levels being the 0.5 ($133.95 USD), 0.618 ($163.67 USD) and the 0.786 ($205.99 USD). 

Bearish scenario

Failure to maintain momentum and bids behind this move, resulting in the move lower beyond the current lows of $99 USD. 

Avalanche – AVAX

Avalanche also offers a similar technical structure to Solana, however could be considered as a laggard. They are both infrastructure tokens amongst the top 10 assets. 

Looking at a weekly candlestick chart of Avalanche, there are notable technical Fibonacci levels above current price. Similar to Solana, looking at technical Fibonacci levels above price we can map out some potential scenarios.

Bullish scenario 

A breakout of this current range, with the technical Fibonacci levels above of interest being the 0.382 ($61.47 USD), 0.50 ($77.80 USD) and the 0.618 ($94.14 USD)

Bearish scenario

Failure to break out of this current weekly range, could see prices move lower to previous weekly lows starting at $35.20 USD.
