Market Wrap: Bitcoin Gains May Be Limited in January, Altcoins Outperform

By Damanick Dantes

Bitcoin (BTC) was roughly flat over the past 24 hours as trading volume continued to decline.

Still, some alternative cryptocurrencies (altcoins) outperformed BTC on Tuesday. Internet Computer’s ICP token was up about 20% over the past 24 hours, and Chainlink’s LINK token was up about 4% over the same period.

Meanwhile, technical indicators suggest a brief price bounce in BTC could occur if buyers are able to defend a daily close above $47,000.

Some traders appear to be optimistic as leverage as open interest in the BTC perpetual futures market, a type of crypto derivative trading product, increased above November highs.

“The boring market over the last month seems to have attracted traders back to leverage,” Arcane Research wrote in a report.

Also on Tuesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) delayed its decision by 60 days on NYDIG’s spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). The delay contributed to a sour mood across crypto markets as some tokens experienced a brief pullback after the announcement.

Latest Prices

  • Bitcoin (BTC): $46,238, +0.60%
  • Ether (ETH): $3,815, +3.01%
  • S&P 500: $4,793, -0.06%
  • Gold: $1,814, +0.61%
  • 10-year Treasury yield closed at 1.64%

Dull January ahead?

The probability of a positive outcome in January is mixed. That suggests some traders who are long BTC might sell ahead of volatility or may choose to accumulate on pullbacks as February shows greater odds for price gains, according to seasonal data.

Crypto fund flows rise

Digital asset investment products saw inflows totaling $9.3 billion in 2021, a 36% increase from 2020, according to a new report from CoinShares.

Some investors pulled money out of crypto funds during the final week of 2021, as outflows totaled $32 million. The third consecutive week of outflows suggests some nervousness among short-term investors after the crypto sell-off in early December.
