Short-Term Bitcoin Investors Face Losses!

  • The Short-Term Holder Spending Profit Ratio (STH-SOPR) for Bitcoin has dropped from 1 to 0.9809, indicating less favorable conditions for short-term Bitcoin holders due to recent price declines.
  • Last week, the SEC decided to delay decisions on seven ETF applications, stating that it would need an additional 45 days to review them.
  • Bitcoin is currently trading at $25,760 with a 0.6% decrease in the last 24 hours and an approximately 1% decline in the past seven days.

The sluggish and uncertain outlook for Bitcoin continues; short-term investors are selling, but not at a profit.

What Does the Short-Term SOPR Metric for Bitcoin Indicate?

Bitcoin-BTC

The Short-Term Holder Spending Profit Ratio (STH-SOPR) for Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped from 1 to 0.9809, indicating less favorable conditions for short-term Bitcoin holders due to recent price declines. The STH-SOPR measures the profitability of Bitcoin transactions held for less than 155 days.

The decrease in STH-SOPR during a price correction suggests that many short-term holders may be selling their Bitcoins at a price that could contribute to a general price decline and potentially lead to a self-reinforcing downward price cycle.

This development indicates that short-term holders are selling their Bitcoins at a price without making a profit or incurring losses.

Slow Progress on ETFs

One reason for the lack of excitement among Bitcoin investors is the perception that many applications for spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) sitting on the desk of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are not progressing.

Last week, the SEC decided to delay decisions on seven ETF applications, stating that it would need an additional 45 days to review them. The new decision date for the ETF applications is now in mid-October.

These delays come despite the recent court decision involving digital asset manager Grayscale; most experts believe this decision will make it harder for the regulator to reject any applications.

This victory means that the SEC can no longer legally prevent Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust from converting into a spot ETF, something it has long desired. Bitcoin is currently trading at $25,760 with a 0.6% decrease in the last 24 hours and an approximately 1% decline in the past seven days.
