After a relatively stable start to the week, Bitcoin (BTC) faced a reversal in its price, falling below $68,000, influenced by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) decision on the approval of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) of Ethereum in sight. However, the price of the largest cryptocurrency rose again today.

Currently, the price of Bitcoin is approaching the $70K level again. During the week, rumors of an imminent approval of an Ethereum spot ETF by the SEC sent the price of BTC soaring to almost $72,000, a peak that had not been seen in almost two months. Although it suffered a significant pullback following the approval of Ethereum ETFs, Bitcoin staged a strong recovery at the start of the weekend.

Analyzing the latest movements in the market, an esteemed cryptocurrency expert recently highlighted that Bitcoin is out of the “danger zone”, however, even with this, the price of Bitcoin could still suffer a drop of approximately 13% from its current value .

“Since Bitcoin’s post-halving “danger zone” ended, Bitcoin has reached $71,500. However, ~$71,500 is where the high resistance band of the macro reaccumulation range is and this is where Bitcoin was rejected. Consolidation continues and history suggests it will continue for a few more weeks between $60,000 and $70,000,” he wrote.

At the time of publication, the price of Bitcoin was quoted at US$69,167.17, up 2.6% in the last 24 hours. During this period, the cryptocurrency recorded a trading volume of US$22,189,897,186. The price of BTC has appreciated by 2.8% in the last seven days.
