Last week, it was reported that SEC commissioner Robert J. Jackson believes that the approval of a Bitcoin ETF is inevitable. He stated that its not a question of if the Bitcoin ETF will be approved, but a question of when.

The SEC has a very strict procedure in allowing funds to be developed as investment instruments as it is their duty to protect American investors. So far, there have been a plethora of proposed ETFs that have been denied by the SEC as these requirements have not been met.

The SEC has cited concerns over liquidity, custody and market manipulation as reasons why the ETFs have been constantly rejected. However, the recent comments by the SEC commissioner has brought a new wave of optimism into the market as he believes that there will eventually be a proposal that will meet the established guidelines for approval.

Let us continue to take a look at the BTC market and highlight some potential areas of support and resistance moving forward.
