What's happening with Bitcoin

Bitcoin started to rise on March 15th. During the day, the cryptocurrency was trading in the range of $61,350-66,440. Bitcoin started Thursday by updating its local maximum. At the moment, the cryptocurrency rate reached $66,690, a level that was last recorded on April 24, 2024.

Why did Bitcoin rise?

There are several reasons for the positive dynamics of Bitcoin. Let's look at them:

  1. Release of market-positive economic data in the US. Positive inflation statistics in America increases investor optimism regarding the timing of the Fed's transition to lowering the key rate. Weak retail sales in the US were also a positive factor. The slight increase in the metric reduced investors' concerns about the economy overheating. Fresh statistics could increase investor interest in such high-risk assets as cryptocurrency.
  2. Renewed influx of investments into spot Bitcoin ETFs. Between May 13 and May 15, the instruments attracted almost $470 million. The influx of funds into spot Bitcoin ETFs forces issuers to purchase BTC for the funds, thereby supporting the cryptocurrency rate.
  3. Downtrend Breakout. From a technical analysis point of view, Bitcoin has broken out of the downtrend, opening the way for further growth.

A combination of factors can explain the reasons for Bitcoin’s growth.
