    • Hello Annie.

    • Today, I'd like to discuss the recent volatility in Bitcoin prices in Asia, which is closely linked to automated trading algorithms that monitor flows in US exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

    • Oh, really?😮 So, how does this automated trading work?

    • It's quite fascinating.

    • These algorithms respond to daily US ETF flow data, causing pronounced swings in Bitcoin prices during Asian trading hours.

    • For instance, Bitcoin's steep decline on Tuesday morning in Asia coincided with the release of US ETF flows data, which indicated a net withdrawal of investments.

    • Hmm... so the algorithms are basically buying and selling based on this data?

    • Exactly.

    • Shiliang Tang, president of Arbelos Markets, explained that bots can auto-scrape this data and buy and sell based on it.

    • Interesting!🤔 And how has this affected the Bitcoin market overall?

    • Since the introduction of several Bitcoin ETFs in the United States on January 11, they have attracted a net $12 billion in investments.

    • This led to a surge in inflows, especially in the first half of March, propelling Bitcoin to a record high of $73,798.

    • Wow!

    • That's quite a surge!

    • But I heard there was also a decline recently?

    • Yes, you're right.

    • The premier cryptocurrency has seen a decline of up to 17.6% from this peak, amidst fluctuating inflows and outflows within the sector.

  • Annie

    • Oh no!😱 That's quite a drop!

    • How did this affect the Asian markets?

    • The pattern of flows has notably impacted the Asian markets' returns.

    • February and early March witnessed particularly strong performance, which diminished later in the month.

  • Annie

    • And what about the influence of these algorithmic protocols on Bitcoin's price?

    • The influence extends to derivatives as well, with Coinglass reporting about $357 million in bullish crypto bets being liquidated on Tuesday alone.

    • That's a lot of money!😲 So, is this news good or bad for the market?

    • Well, Annie, it's hard to say definitively.

    • But given the volatility and the recent decline in Bitcoin's price, I would lean towards this being a negative development for the market.

    • Upon comprehensive consideration, this news is perceived as a 😱Bearish.
