    "The risk that an SEC approval will trigger a ‘sell the event' reaction is elevated, but that won't stop the institutional money from enjoying the ride higher.  With $250 million in short liquidations in the books, a lot of traders are keen on jumping on this move higher," said Moya, in a note seen by Benzinga.

    Cryptocurrency trader Michaël van de Poppe congratulated his followers on having survived the Crypto "bear market."

    He noted on Wednesday that Bitcoin was "essentially just consolidating." Van de Poppe, wrote on X, formerly Twitter, "If we sweep $33.1 and get towards $32.6K, basically long entry zone. Getting above the highs, we’ll see how fast things start to move. Most upside of the move is probably already in, but it’s strong that we’re consolidating here."

    Market intelligence platform Santiment noted that Bitcoin "scratched its way" to a new 17-month high even as other risk assets such as equities declined on Wednesday.

    "[crypto] market caps are growing as the #SP500 declines. This suggests that $BTC’s & #altcoins’ 2-year reliance on #equities is gone, a typical recipe for #bullmarket conditions," said Santiment on X."
