BGB Has Hit Oversold - Now Back On Track
From the week’s opening of US$0.483456, BGB price has risen to as high as US$0.494244 (+2.2%) on Tuesday. That means the weekly spread is on the way down, same as volume. Tighter spread and reduced volume could be signs of a new local high, especially when the RSI is showing reversing trends.
BGB's volatility remained lower than that of Bitcoin. The token price for sure experienced much less fluctuations than the other Top 2 cryptocurrencies (Ethereum and Binance Coin), making it a safer investment and saving option than all the other three.
BGB’s liquidity is held stable at a good level of around 0.02 while the rest also suffered from volume instability. Most similar to BGB is BTC, but even then, Bitcoin liquidity has been falling to new lows since the end of June.
Here's a recap of BGB activities from July 03 to July 07, 2023:

Bitcoin And The ETFs Hype (Cont’d)
Bitcoin prices rose to US$31,000 for the first time since June 2022 on July 04 as an extended effect of the spot Bitcoin ETFs' filings. Volatility Shares 2x Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITX: Cboe BZX), the first leveraged Bitcoin futures ETF, ended its first week with more than 500,000 shares traded. On its debut day only, the ETF saw US$5.5 million in volume, with US$500,000 already in the first 15 minutes. This is a clear signal for the traditional market's interest in Bitcoin. The new rounds of inflows brought ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF’s holding to over US$1 billion in futures contracts value.

One key economic event last week was the release of FED minutes of the FOMC meeting that took place on June 13 - 14, 2023. Key comments include ‘persistently elevated core inflation’, ‘real gross domestic product (GDP) was expanding at a modest pace in the second quarter’, ‘job gains were robust and the unemployment rate was low’, which translates to a very high possibility of another rate hike next month. Supporting these statements is the U.S. June job market report that shows the unemployment rate decreasing to 3.6%, average hourly earnings increasing by 4.4% YoY and payrolls by 209,000. The markets tumbled following the FED minutes release; Bitcoin slided back to US$30,000 and stock markets also saw red.
