Crypto Market Compass 10 Last week, cryptoassets outperformed traditional assets due to a reacceleration in US spot Bitcoin ETF inflows

• Last week, cryptoassets outperformed traditional assets due to a reacceleration in US spot Bitcoin ETF inflows

• Our in-house “Cryptoasset Sentiment Indicator” continues to fluctuate around neutral levels of sentiment

• US spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their highest weekly net inflow since mid-March and have seen 20 consecutive trading days of positive net inflows so far

Chart of the Week

Performance

Last week, cryptoassets outperformed traditional assets once again supported by a renewed acceleration in global crypto ETP net inflows and US spot Bitcoin ETF net inflows in particular.

More specifically, US spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their highest weekly net inflow since mid-March (Chart-of-the-Week). Weekly crypto ETP net inflows across all types of cryptoassets surpassed 2 bn USD last week, of which net inflows into US spot Bitcoin ETFs accounted for ~80.5% alone. US spot Bitcoin ETFs have seen 20 consecutive trading days of positive net inflows so far.

It seems as if risk appetite is returning to the crypto markets, especially after the ECB and Bank of Canada both announced to cut their key interest rates last week. These developments mark a significant shift in major central banks’ monetary policy as these are the first interest rate cuts since 2019 (ECB) and 2020 (Bank of Canada), respectively.

The macro liquidity tide is obviously turning already, which we have also analysed in our latest monthly report here.

However, the net implications for Bitcoin and cryptoassets of this reversal in global monetary policy are still somewhat mixed as these changes also signal that economic data are worsening significantly and global growth still seems to be the most dominant macro factor for Bitcoin at the moment based on our analyses.

In this context, the latest non-farm payrolls print that came in way above expectations seems to be inconsistent with other US employment data that continue to signal worsening labour market conditions.

That being said, over the medium- to long-term, monetary policy easing will provide a significant tailwind for Bitcoin and cryptoassets, especially in light of the latest Bitcoin Halving that will probably affect performances positively from summer onwards.

Increasing spot supply scarcity is generally visible for both Bitcoin and Ethereum as on-exchange balances continue to hit multi-year lows.

So, while the growth of fiat liquidity supply is likely to accelerate over the next 12 months, the illiquidity of supply of major cryptoassets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum will also worsen.

This combination of fiat demand expansion and cryptoasseet supply tightening is bound to be very positive for cryptoassets going forward.

In general, among the top 10 crypto assets, BNB, Toncoin, and Bitcoin were the relative outperformers.

Overall, altcoin outperformance vis-à-vis Bitcoin has declined significantly compared to the prior week, with only around 15% of our tracked altcoins managing to outperform Bitcoin on a weekly basis. This is consistent with the fact that Bitcoin outperformed Ethereum by almost 500 bps last week, which is generally a sentiment gauge for the overall altcoin market.

Sentiment

Our in-house “Cryptoasset Sentiment Index” continues to fluctuate around neutral levels of sentiment.

At the moment, 5 out of 15 indicators are above their short-term trend.

Last week, there were significant reversals to the upside in BTC exchange inflows and BTC options put-call volume ratios.

The Crypto Fear & Greed Index signals ”Greed” as of this morning.

Performance dispersion among cryptoassets still remains very low. Most altcoins are still trading in line with Bitcoin.

Altcoin outperformance vis-à-vis Bitcoin has declined significantly compared to the week prior, with only around 15% of our tracked altcoins outperforming Bitcoin on a weekly basis, which is consistent with the fact that Bitcoin outperformed Ethereum last week.

In general, increasing (decreasing) altcoin outperformance tends to be a sign of increasing (decreasing) risk appetite within cryptoasset markets and the latest altcoin underperformance could signal low appetite for risk at the moment.

Meanwhile, sentiment in traditional financial markets rebounded to the upside from its recent lows, judging by our own measure of Cross Asset Risk Appetite (CARA).

Fund Flows

Last week, we saw very positive net inflows into global crypto ETPs of around +2,270.4 mn USD which was the highest amount of weekly net inflows since mid-March.

Global Bitcoin ETPs saw net inflows of +2,189.0 mn USD last week, of which +1,828.9 mn USD (net) were related to US spot Bitcoin ETFs alone. US spot
Bitcoin ETFs have seen 20 consecutive trading days of positive net inflows so far.

Flows into Hong Kong spot Bitcoin ETFs were also decent, with net inflows of around +260.6 mn USD, according to data provided by Bloomberg.

The ETC Group Physical Bitcoin ETP (BTCE) saw minor net outflows equivalent to -5.3 mn USD while the ETC Group Core Bitcoin ETP (BTC1) saw no net flows (+/- 0 mn USD) last week.

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) continued to see minor net outflows with approximately -31.1 mn USD last week, while other major US spot Bitcoin ETFs continued to attract more capital.

Global Ethereum ETPs saw accelerating net inflows last week, with net inflows of around +80.0 mn USD.

Furthermore, the ETC Group Physical Ethereum ETP (ZETH) saw another week of net inflows of +1.5 mn USD last week. The ETC Group Ethereum Staking ETP (ET32) saw neither in- nor outflows last week (+/- 0 mn USD).

Besides, Altcoin ETPs ex Ethereum also experienced some minor net inflows of around +17.8 mn USD last week.

Besides, Thematic & basket crypto ETPs continue to see minor net outflows of -7.5 mn USD, based on our calculations. The ETC Group MSCI Digital Assets Select 20 ETP (DA20) saw neither in- nor outflows last week (+/- 0 mn USD).

Meanwhile, global crypto hedge funds continue to decrease their market exposure to Bitcoin. The beta of global crypto hedge funds’ performance has declined to 0.73 over the past 20 trading days.

On-Chain Data

Looking at core on-chain data for Bitcoin, we can make the following observations.
Active addresses still hover near year-to-lows as transaction fees remain relatively high. There was also a spike in mean transaction fees last week on Friday to the highest level since the Halving event on the 20th of April. The mean transaction fee reached 83.7 USD that day.

One of the reasons is that the overall number of transactions and also the transaction rate (transactions/second) have gradually increased over the past weeks which has resulted in an increase in the mempool of unconfirmed transactions.

This does not seem to be inscription-related, as this share has remained below 10% of overall transaction count.

The Bitcoin hash rate also continued to be relatively high and we even saw a slight increase in network hash rate compared to the prior week. In this context, there are still no signs of “miner capitulation” in light of the recent reduction of mining revenues due to the Halving. For instance, aggregate BTC miner balances have moved sideways and we haven’t seen significant miner transfers to exchanges either.

Looking at exchange activity, one can observe say that exchange balances continue to decline to fresh multi-year lows. For instance, aggregate BTC exchange balances have touched the lowest level since March 2018 and aggregate ETH exchange balances touched the lowest level since July 2016 last week.

Bitcoin exchanges saw around -21.7k BTC in net withdrawals over the past 7 days and whales have continued to send bitcoins of exchange as well. Whales are defined as network entities that control at least 1,000 BTC.

However, net buying minus selling volumes on exchanges have been negative over the past week, despite significant net inflows into spot US Bitcoin ETFs. This implies that there is significant selling pressure on spot exchanges that is countering current buying demand.

This is probably one of the main reasons why bitcoin has not reclaimed new all-time highs despite reaccelerating US spot Bitcoin ETF inflows.

Futures, Options & Perpetuals

Last week, BTC futures open interest increased significantly and reached the highest level since January 2023 in BTC-terms. Perpetual open interest also reached the highest level since December 2023 in BTC-terms. The significant increase futures open interest was only partially attributed to an increase in CME futures open interest that accounted for less than half of this increase. However, the CME data point to a significant increase in net short open interest by non-commercials.

This is probably due to the fact that the Bitcoin futures basis continued to creep upwards and has reached a 2-months high of around 14.2% p.a. This has probably attracted more basis trades, which has resulted in the abovementioned increase in short open interest. The basis trade consists of a delta-neutral long and short position in Bitcoin.

Meanwhile, perpetual funding rates continued to be relatively elevated, signalling decent demand for long perpetual contracts.

Bitcoin options’ open interest also increased significantly last week. The decline in relative put-call open interest ratio implies that this increase was mostly driven by an increase in call open interest on a net basis. A call option gives the holder the right to buy the underlying at a specific price in the future. Relative put-call volume ratios declined throughout the week.

The decline in the 25-delta BTC 1-month option skew also corroborates the view that there was increased demand for calls relative to puts.

BTC option implied volatilities also continued to decrease last week. Implied volatilities of 1-month ATM Bitcoin options are currently at around 49.8% p.a.

Bottom Line

• Last week, cryptoassets outperformed traditional assets due to a reacceleration in US spot Bitcoin ETF inflows

• Our in-house “Cryptoasset Sentiment Indicator” continues to fluctuate around neutral levels of sentiment

• US spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their highest weekly net inflow since mid-March and have seen 20 consecutive trading days of positive net inflows so far

En av världens största ETFer ordnar om sina innehav i Apple och Nvidia

Publicerad

För närvarande upptar Microsoft, det största företaget i världen, 22 % av indexet, medan Apple står för 21 % och Nvidia bara 6 %. De senaste veckorna har det skett stora rörelser på finansmarknaderna, vilket tvingar en av världens största ETFer att omorganisera sin portfölj.

För närvarande upptar Microsoft, det största företaget i världen, 22 % av indexet, medan Apple står för 21 % och Nvidia bara 6 %. De senaste veckorna har det skett stora rörelser på finansmarknaderna, vilket tvingar en av världens största ETFer att omorganisera sin portfölj.

Apples aktier steg med mer än 10% efter presentationen av sin plattform för artificiell intelligens. Detta ledde till att teknikföretaget blev, återigen, om än tillfälligt, det största företaget på planeten, med en värdering på 3,30 biljoner USD.

Nvidia har å sin sida stigit med 170 % hittills i år och nått 3,27 miljarder USD. Därmed kunde den placera sig på tredje plats bland de mest värdefulla företagen, till och med överträffa Alphabet och Amazon.

Som ett resultat är den börshandlade fonden Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLK), som följer utvecklingen för de ledande teknikföretagen på den amerikanska marknaden, på väg att balansera om sin portfölj för att följa reglerna, vilket kan påverka aktiekurserna. Följ kursen här.

För närvarande upptar Microsoft, det största företaget i världen, 22 % av indexet, medan Apple står för 21 % och Nvidia bara 6 %. Men snart måste Apples och Nvidias positioner bytas ut.

Flytten skulle innebära en försäljning på cirka 11,4 miljarder dollar för Apple, en total som representerar en hel dag med genomsnittlig handel, och köp på 10 miljarder dollar för Nvidia, ungefär en fjärdedel av den dagliga volymen.

Även om siffrorna bleknar i jämförelse med de två jättarnas börsvärden, är sanningen att de fortsätter att antyda ett flöde av pengar som kan ha en inverkan på priserna på deras aktier. Hur som helst kan de icke-professionella investerarnas frenesi dämpa effekterna av denna omstrukturering.

Spotlight Group AB meddelar att dotterbolaget Spotlight Stock Market från och med den 25 juni 2024 kommer att erbjuda handel med ETPer. Spotlight Stock Market har idag godkänt en emittent som utgivare av instrument samt två stycken olika ETPer för handel.

Spotlight Group AB meddelar att dotterbolaget Spotlight Stock Market från och med den 25 juni 2024 kommer att erbjuda handel med ETPer. Spotlight Stock Market har idag godkänt en emittent som utgivare av instrument samt två stycken olika ETPer för handel.

ETP (Exchange-Traded Products), eller börshandlade produkter, är ett samlingsnamn för olika typer av värdepapperiserade derivat som listas för handel på en marknadsplats. De första två instrumenten av denna typ som godkänts för handel är trackercertifikat på Core och HBAR (Hedera). Emittenten som ställer ut instrumenten är Valour Inc.

”Vår långsiktiga strategi är att utöka möjligheterna till handel på Spotlight Stock Market både när det gäller omfattningen av produkter som kan handlas och att underlätta för fler internationella aktörer att handla på marknadsplatsen. Under en lång tid har flera olika aktörer approcherat oss med önskan om att få notera ETPer på vår marknadsplats. När vi under föregående år handlade upp ny leverantör av handelsystem var också denna möjlighet en del av beslutet att byta från NGM till Nasdaq. Därför är vi glada över att nu ha godkänt vår första emittent och de två första instrumenten för handel”, säger Spotlight Groups koncernchef Peter Gönczi.
