The market saw a tug-of-war between crypto bulls and bears, broadly evident from Bitcoin’s price, which oscillated between $64,000 and $67,000 in the last 24 hours with higher signals of volatility.

Bitcoin’s price strength witnessed dramatic highs and lows in the crypto market, with $64,000 acting as the support. Bitcoin has navigated this contest between crypto bulls and bears with a gradual upward movement. It has fought back the bearish sentiments and moved up towards a price breakout above $66,000. If its current movement continues, BTC could land around $70,000 by the end of this week.

Nevertheless, Bitcoin’s price strength contraction will likely not continue much longer. If the current movement is tracking historical patterns of a pre-halving retrace, then a rally could ensue after the event.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas noted the huge trading volumes of the spot Bitcoin ETFs in March. The trading volumes had increased to touch $111 billion. The analyst also shared a chart showing the dominance of the Bloomberg spot Bitcoin ETF.

He stated, “While all of the ETFs won in terms of being profitable hits, $IBIT won the volume race and is officially the $GLD of Bitcoin.”

Since the volumes of the ETFs have traded exponentially, one could expect much bigger volumes in the next few months.
