In the latest edition of the Crypto Finance House View, we cover the following topics:
Market Review & Outlook
In a recent court ruling, the SEC was urged to reconsider the conversion of Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust into an ETF, hinting at a possible spot ETF approval in the United States. Concurrently, the integration of crypto into social media has accelerated, with the launch of Friend.tech on the Ethereum Layer 2 chain “Base“, while X (formerly Twitter) is potentially introducing crypto-based services. Our current market analysis indicates a generally low risk-taking appetite, yet the prevailing environment constitutes a strategic opportunity to build exposures, with an optimistic outlook for the next 12 months.

Crypto Finance Bitcoin Cycle Indicator
BTC/USD, currently trading at USD 25,900, corrected strongly on August 17th, crossed the mid-term uptrend line, and found support at USD 25k. This is likely the most important level on the chart since it has been tested multiple times: the neckline of the big inverse head and shoulders pattern. Although prices have been trading sideways in our (not preferred) alternative scenario between USD 32k and USD 25k, the projection up to the USD 35k level is still valid. However, if there is a break below the supportive neckline, our worst-case scenario down to USD 20k (low of March 2023) becomes more likely. The long-term RSI model triggered an exit signal on August 17th. In consequence, the model is positioned as neutral. RSI levels are at 47.5 (last week’s close). The relative strength of ETH vs. BTC has traded sideways. The charts still favour BTC vs. ETH.
