However, a sudden correction followed, causing BTC/USD to drop by $1,300 in a matter of minutes. The total decline exceeded 4% as bulls aimed to turn the key $69,000 zone into support.

Analysts observed encouraging data regarding flows for United States spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Despite a modest outflow of 1,300 BTC ($91 million) from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) at the Wall Street opening, previous days had seen net inflows of over $400 million.
