The price of Bitcoin has reached a year-to-date high of $31,431, driven by growing institutional interest from companies such as BlackRock and Fidelity Investments, both of which have filed for a spot Bitcoin ETF in the past two weeks. Despite negative news surrounding the SEC crackdown on Binance and Coinbase, bullish traders continue to overpower BTC shorts. The cooling US dollar index and the pausing of interest rate increases by the Federal Reserve have also contributed to the rally. However, the Bitcoin Fear & Greed Index has reached a three-month high, indicating potential risks for investors.
