The U.S. Equities Markets Rebounds As Bitcoin Suffers A Small Setback

After observing a promising surge of 2.50% last week, the U.S. equities market, marked by the S&P 500 Index (SPX), seems to be finding its footing again. This has been noted as its most profitable week since June. Meanwhile, Bitcoin (BTC) staged what seemed like an attempt at a relief rally, but failed to sustain higher value points and concluded the week with a marginal 0.5% loss.

A notable impediment to Bitcoin’s growth was the postponement of decisions regarding all spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) applications by the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, analysts remain hopeful. The expectation is that several Bitcoin ETFs will eventually get the green light from the regulator, as stated in a recent note by JPMorgan analysts.

Long-Term Investors Remain Unfazed As Bitcoin Price Flux Continuates

Regardless of Bitcoin's short-term price instability, long-term investors have chosen to hold onto their stocks. Glassnode data reveals a record high of 40.538% in the currently mined supply that has remained dormant for three years or longer. Given these dynamics, the critical question is: can Bitcoin break its range soon? What key signals should we be watching?

Analyzing the S&P 500, U.S Dollar Index, and Major Cryptocurrencies

In the past week, the S&P 500 Index overpowered the moving averages, which signals a strong relief rally sparked by the bulls. Similarly, the U.S. Dollar Index has seen an uptick. Meanwhile, Bitcoin has been trading within a vast range between $24,800 and $31,000.

Other heavyweights in the crypto space such as Ether (ETH) have also seen fluctuations in their numbers, with ETH dipping below significant support points. BNB and XRP, likewise, have had their share of challenges, while ADA (Cardano), DOGE (Dogecoin), as well as SOL (Solana) and TON (Toncoin) have presented a mixed bag of strengths and weakness in their value trends.
