BTC dices starting at $60,000

BTC/USD keeps traders anxious into Saturday, according to data from TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro. This is in addition to the decision on $60,000 support.

After the market crashed to $64,900, the level was the first area that saw significant buyer interest.

Analysts remain bullish for longer time frames, but the downturn is making it interesting to close the weekly candle.

Michael van de Poppe (Cointelegraph contributor) called the correction “fine” but maintained his prognosis that the macro price would reach $300,000.

A popular theory is that overleveraged traders have been flushed out, which has resulted in funding rates rising to unsustainable levels.

The topic of front-running the first Bitcoin ETF in the United States is still a hot topic, according to BitBit.

In just three months, 1.25 trillion dollars was injected into the market. This was before the approval of the ETF. Now, tell me that this information was not available to large pockets before the ETF approval. 1.25 trillion.
