This type of dynamic could be very conducive to an explosive breakout once we finally have reached the top,” said Mati Greenspan, founder of the research. and consulting firm Quantum Economics for BeInCrypto.

This forecast is also driven by strong demand for ETFs and expected interest rate cuts from the Federal Reserve.

“There have been massive inflows into spot Bitcoin ETFs. The macroeconomy continues to shift in favor of cryptocurrencies, with economic growth slowing to a recession-free pace and persistent signs of falling inflation.” He said Sean Farrell, Head of Digital Asset Strategy at Fundstrat Global Advisors.

Other central banks have already started cutting interest rates. The European Central Bank (ECB) lowered its key interest rate to 3.75% and the Bank of Canada (BoC) lowered its interest rate to 4.75%.

These reductions also aim to stimulate economic activity by making borrowing cheaper. Which could lead to an increase in investments in cryptocurrencies. Low interest rates generally reduce the appeal of traditional savings, pushing investors toward riskier assets like cryptocurrencies.
