News recap: ETF boom in the crypto market

Investment companies are preparing to launch cryptocurrency ETFs, and the SFC of Hong Kong is considering providing retail investors with access to spot crypto ETFs. Altcoins are showing growth, while bitcoin is stagnant after the rally. Read the News recap to learn about the most important events in the crypto world between 3rd-15th November.

Crypto market in numbers

From 3rd November, the capitalisation of the cryptocurrency market has grown by 11.6% to $1.44 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap. The indicator continued its confident growth, with such values last observed in May 2022.

Trading activity has significantly increased. Between 3rd-11th November, average daily volumes surged by 87.6% to $97.7 billion. Later, the indicator corrected slightly, but from the 14th November, average daily volumes stabilised in the range of $65 – $70 billion. It appeared that traders were returning to active trading.

The cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index has not left the “Greed” zone since 3rd November. The indicator did not drop below 60 points. Notably, the index reached a multi-year high of 74 points. Such values were observed only in November 2021.

Volatility in cryptocurrencies has shifted to altcoins. From 3rd November, the 30-day volatility index for BTC decreased by 0.4%, from 2.12% to 2.11%. A similar indicator for ETH increased by 31.4%, from 1.14% to 1.64%.

The cryptocurrency market continued its confident growth despite the expectations of many analysts. While BTC was in a relatively narrow price range, altcoins, on the other hand, were growing significantly. It seems that the local “altseason” has finally arrived.

Cryptocurrencies are becoming less responsive to U.S. economic data. The Federal Reserve’s interest rate and CPI had relatively calm effects on BTC and the market. Despite overly positive sentiments in the market, it is worth reminding investors about risks – any strong price movement sooner or later ends with a correction.
