Bitcoin (BTC) returned to $30,000 after the June 21 Wall Street open in a triumphant continuation of the week’s gains.
Bitcoin price destroys traces of multi-week downturn
BTC price action continued to heat up throughout the day as bulls made the most of strength, which had come thanks to various announcements of legacy finance applying to launch a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).
In so doing, BTC/USD erased many weeks of downside, adding over 20% versus local lows below $24,800 seen on June 15.

As traders lined up short-term targets, on-chain monitoring resource Material Indicators focused on $30,000 as an important level to overcome.
“Watching to see how much bid liquidity moves in to the active trading range to serve as support,” it commented.
“Don’t really expect #JPow to reveal any surprises with his testimony, but these events usually deliver some volatility.”
Material Indicators referenced ongoing testimony from Jerome Powell, chair of the United States Federal Reserve, before the House Financial Services Committee.
The U.S. was already a focus for crypto market participants, with the ETF announcements fueling a return to accumulation during Western trading hours.
“The Americans are buying,” Maartunn, a contributor at on-chain analytics platform CryptoQuant, continued.
“The intense bidding on Coinbase that took place yesterday commenced at a similar time as it did today.”
“The real deal”
Others turned their attention to what they considered more organic BTC price action compared to recent local highs.
In line with popular trader and analyst Rekt Capital, Scott Melker, the trader and podcast host known as “The Wolf Of All Streets,” hoped for continuation.
“This Bitcoin move is spot driven, with minimal liquidations and shorts STILL piling in. Further, spot volume today is as much as yesterday already with 10 hours left in the candle,” he told Twitter followers.
“This is the real deal.”
