Behind Bitcoin's back above $71,000, which developments should we keep an eye on?
Crypto funds mark biggest outflows on record last week
Global crypto funds took a sharp downturn last week as investors pulled out $942 million - the most on record, according to CoinShares. This broke what had been a record seven-week string of inflows of $12.3 billion.
Last week's outflow came alongside downside volatility in the price of bitcoin, which tumbled below $61,000 from $73,000 just days earlier.
“We believe the recent price correction led to hesitancy from investors, leading to much lower inflows into new ETF issuers in the US, which saw $1.1 billion inflows, partially offsetting incumbent Grayscale’s significant $2 billion outflows last week,” James Butterfill, head of research at CoinShares, wrote in the report.

In addition, Goldman's Futures desk observed record after record in bitcoin futures: indeed, as prices hit a record high above $73k, total open interest did as well this week above 33k contracts outstanding or nearly $12bn, as "the total number of organizations holding the contract is at a near-record also."
Moreover, Goldman noted that institutional net long and hedge fund net short lengths are at record levels, and the concentration of longs – the percentage of total open interest held by the top 4 net long traders at nearly 60% – is well above average levels.
Putting it all together, ZeroHedge predicted late on Sunday that "another epic squeeze was coming", and just a few hours later, the futures market experienced an "epic squeeze", where hedge fund shorts confirmed just how much they suck at holding their shots following a sharp move higher.
