Bitcoin Surges Above $71,000

Bitcoin surged past $71,000, influenced by optimism around potential Federal Reserve interest rate cuts following BOC, and strong ETF inflows. On June 4, U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their second-highest daily net inflows of $887 million. Major contributors were Fidelity's FBTC and BlackRock's IBIT. Significant short positions above $71,000 suggest potential rapid market movements, with substantial leverage around $72,000. Bitcoin options indicate a possible price breakout above $74,000 by month's end. These dynamics reflect a favorable macroeconomic outlook and increasing institutional interest.

Dogecoin's Social Sentiment Turns Bearish

As of early June 2024, Dogecoin's social sentiment has turned bearish, similar to levels in February, as social volume and weighted sentiment decline. However, whales have accumulated over 900 million DOGE ($112 million). Despite recent whale accumulation, Dogecoin has experienced price downtrends, with minor positive trends insufficient to offset declines.
