The sentiment in the crypto markets can change quickly as seen from the Crypto Fear and Greed Index, which has risen from levels of extreme fear on Sept. 30 to neutral today. The sentiment may improve further if Bitcoin (BTC) breaks out and sustains above the psychologically critical level at $50,000.

One important event that may boost short-term sentiment is the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEGUNDO) decision on Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) aplicaciones. Although the SEC extended the deadline of four Bitcoin ETF applications by 45 days on Oct. 1, Bloomberg’s senior ETF analyst Eric Balchunas is hopeful that a futures-backed Bitcoin ETF may receive the green signal by the middle of October.

Balchunas said the Bitcoin futures-based ETF applications, which have found support from SEC chair Garry Gensler, “are very much alive and likely on schedule (we think 75% chance approved in Oct)."
