Bitcoin’s fall after trouble with ETF
Bitcoin prices declined below $8,000 today, falling slightly after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) opted to reject the second BTC Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) proposed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. However, bitcoin price has dipped below the 100 SMA dynamic inflection point to signal some bearish pressure. The 200 SMA might be the line in the sand for a pullback, as it lines up with a former resistance around $7,500.
Bitcoin price could wait for another round of positive developments to sustain its climb. Earlier on, expectations for a second-half rebound and the pickup in institutional interest were seen as factors propping prices higher.

The agency’s staff specifically called into question the ability of BTC exchanges to sufficiently police trading. The SEC is considering several other applications for crypto ETFs, which could still be approved. The Cboe also can appeal the agency’s decision in federal court.
