Institutions Buy The Dip

Institutional investors were unfazed by the recent correction in the cryptocurrency markets, as digital asset funds dedicated to Bitcoin and Ether continued to grow, according to data from CoinShares. 

Crypto investment products, which include exchange-traded funds (ETFs), saw weekly inflows totaling $154 million for the week ending November 20th, according to CoinShares’ latest fund flows report. Like in previous weeks, Bitcoin investment products attracted most of the inflows at $114.4 million. Funds devoted to Ether saw weekly inflows of $12.6 million, and multi-asset products registered $14.1 million in net investments.

Year-to-date, institutional investors have allocated over $6.6 billion to Bitcoin products, $1.17 billion to Ether products, and more than $9.2 billion to crypto as a whole. Grayscale, the largest crypto asset manager, recorded $51.9 billion in assets under management as of November 19th. 

October was a record-breaking month for Bitcoin funds, in part due to the approval of two futures-linked ETFs in the United States. Institutional managers bought $2 billion worth of Bitcoin funds over the month as the BTC price reached new all-time highs.

Although November has been less bullish for Bitcoin from a price perspective, the latest funds flow data suggests that investors are not concerned by the market correction. The flagship cryptocurrency remains vulnerable to another pullback in the short term. 

According to a recent tweet from crypto analyst TechDev, the 2021 bull market has been lagging the 2017 cycle by five-to-eight days as of July. If the trend continues, Bitcoin and the broader market could be poised for a breakout higher in the medium term.
