ETH Futures Skyrocket to 3.1M, Hinting at Ethereum ETF Approval! 3

Despite the recent price correction, ETH futures long positioning surged from 2.7 million ETH to 3.1 million ETH after the market recovered since May 20. This means that futures traders have become very optimistic about a potential Ethereum ETF approval in the near future.

The surge in ETH futures longs shows an extremely confirmed belief among traders that regulatory approval for an ETF centred on Ethereum is looming despite the spot price of ETH, which has yet to reflect the same degree of optimism. Analysts say this could be a delayed spot market reaction or further bullishness until the ETF approval expectation materializes.

Ethereum Futures Surge Amid ETF Optimism

Some experts have proposed that an already bullish positioning on the ETH futures would not immediately draw a “sell the news” event. ETF approval would likely keep traders maintaining or increasing their positions, considering further price increases post-approval.

Further analysis by Matrixport indicates that institutional and retail investors are looking to position appropriately to take advantage of possible ETF-related developments in the Ethereum market. This would then be a part of the greater trend whereby market participants look beyond immediate price action and into accused future regulatory strides and institutional adoption that might be fueled by these developments.
