The cryptocurrency sector has been in the news recently after the world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, said that it has filed for a spot Bitcoin ETF. As part of the application, BlackRock included a surveillance-sharing agreement (SSA) to potentially allay the SEC’s concerns over market manipulation. Subsequently, Fidelity also revealed its plans for a BTC ETF while other companies are also seen putting in BTC ETF applications to the SEC.

The recent positive news flow has seen Bitcoin probe levels last seen in June 2022. The late-April high at $31k is proving difficult to break convincingly with recent attempts unsuccessful. The recent price action is building a bullish pennant pattern and if this plays out, BTC could move sharply higher. A multi-month streak of higher lows is also giving Bitcoin a positive boost, while all three moving averages are also in a bullish formation. A confirmed break above $31k could spark a fresh move higher with $32.4k as the next level of resistance before $37.3k comes into view.
