October’s Historical Bitcoin Prices Trend Offers Hope for a Renewing Bull Run to End the Year

October's Historical Bitcoin Price Trends Extends Hope for a Renewed Bull Run to End the Year

Bitcoin logged price losses once again for the crypto asset’s fifth consecutive September in its lifetime, but as soon as the month ended, billions of dollars came back into the crypto economy. Metrics show that while September has consistently been a bad month for bitcoin, October, on the other hand, has traditionally been a good month for bitcoin since 2013.

Bitcoin Has Been Profitable in October 77% of the Time

In 2020, the price of bitcoin (BTC) closed the month of September at around $10,750 per unit but the following month, BTC spiked 25% to roughly $13,450 per unit. This year, September has been dreary price-wise, and many crypto proponents have asked to be woken up when “September ends.” On September 26, Civic co-founder Vinny Lingham wrote: “This feels like September 2017 again… Who remembers what happened next?”

On October 1, 2021, BTC surged from $43,500 per unit to Friday’s high of $48,500 per BTC. That’s an increase of around 11. 49% and the spike happened very quickly at around 3 a.m. (EST) in the morning.

Prior to July and August, BTC saw roughly three months of negative returns, and in September prices once again slipped into the negative range. The downward drop was blamed on China cracking down on bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency exchange for the seventh time since 2013.

Bitcoin also saw losses on the day El Salvador adopted the cryptocurrency as legal tender and furthermore, BTC slid when the Evergrande real estate crisis shook the global economy.

September was slow, but institutional Bitcoin products saw some positive

All of these dips took place after BTC reached a high of $52K before September started and crypto markets looked seemingly bullish at the time. While September prices were not so hot, metrics from a recent Cryptocompare report showed that institutional products tied to BTC saw some upside.

“Bitcoin-based products saw the highest level of inflows out of any asset, averaging $31.2 million per week,” Cryptocompare’s research details. “There could be upside going into the last quarter of 2021.”

While BTC has neared the $50K zone on October 1, the crypto asset has some resistance to fight at the $50K handle and even more so when it reaches $53K. Moreover, as bitcoin (BTC) has seen profitable increases in value during the month of October since 2013, the months of November and December have seen much larger spikes in value.

BTC slips amid poor debut for Hong Kong spot ETFs

  • Bitcoin fell to under $62,000 after spiking past $64,700 earlier as Hong Kong spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs began trading.
  • Data showed trading volumes hit just over $11 million, against expectations of over $3oo million.

Bitcoin price fell below $62,000 again amid market reaction to less than encouraging numbers from the first day of trading for much hyped spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs in Hong Kong.

BTC was down about 1.4% at the time of writing, having touched lows of $61,587 across major crypto exchanges.

The benchmark cryptocurrency, which has struggled to reclaim key levels since its recent halving event, was seeing a 24-hour trading volume of $28.4 billion.

Bitcoin price and Hong Kong spot ETFs debut

Earlier, Bitcoin price surged to above $64,000 as the six spot Bitcoin and spot Ethereum ETFs went live in Hong Kong.

The flagship cryptocurrency rose to over $64,727 on US-based crypto exchange Coinbase. BTC also soared after reports Hong Kong approved the listing of the ETFs.

However, as data streamed in showing disappointing trading volumes and inflows, Bitcoin price took a hit. According to details of the six ETFs’s debut day, total trading volume reached just $11 million, not impressive given projections were much higher at over $300 million.

Bitcoin ETFs saw about $8.5 million while Ethereum ETFs recorded just $2.5 million on the first day. Ethereum price fell to $3,040.

Notably, the figures from Hong Kong are way lower compared to those recorded amid the enthusiasm that greeted the launch of spot Bitcoin ETFs in the US in January. On their debut, the US spot BTC ETFs raked in over $4.6 billion in trading volume.

The start to trading for the ETFs has not helped BTC price and BTC could face a slide under the $60k level if sentiment flips negative. On the upside, resistance at $65k remains critical and a breakout could see the bellwether digital asset soar towards its recent peak.
