Few market problems can be caused by ETF rejection

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data showed that BTC/USD was trading calmly into the weekend. The pair was acting within a $1,000 range.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), declined to approve VanEck’s spot ETF product. However, it did not cause significant volatility.

VanEck was the first of many decisions on spot ETFs. However, it came as no surprise to most, with the firm expressing disappointment at the outcome.

Jan Van Eck replied on Twitter that “We are disappointed by today’s update of the SEC declining to approve our physical bitcoin ETF.”

“We believe investors should have the ability to gain BTC exposure via a regulated fund, and that a nonfutures ETF structure would be the best approach.”

Others were louder, including Matias Dorta (Vice President of Marketing at Roundhill Investments), who pointed out the negative impact on investors resulting from eight years worth of rejections by SEC.

The SEC rejected the first $BTC ETF in 2013. He argued that they had succeeded in protecting investors from gains of +12,700%.

Weekly close keeps everyone guessing

The rejection was overthrown by traders, and traders now focus on the weekly close.

Popular trader Pentoshi stated that BTC/USD had to maintain a level of resistance above the range since April’s initial $64,900. This will be the key feature for the next days.

There are only 2 days to go, but that’s basically what I will be keeping an eye on.

Rekt Capital, a fellow analyst, maintained a bullish outlook on the longer-term potential for price.

He tweeted, “All data science models suggest BTC will peak significantly higher than $100,000 in the current cycle,” in one of a series tweets on Friday.

Others pointed out the absence of evidence that the bull market was over or threatened at the current stage.
