Not a bad start of the week

Cryptic ball: not reversal.

This was a fairly boring weekend for most projects, as Bitcoin's double test of $59k - something I told you might as well happen last Friday - dragged down the market a bit. Then, at midnight UTC, almost everything started bouncing and BTC rose up 7% this Monday. SOL was one of the few exceptions, having started to bounce with ETH this Sunday afternoon, UTC time. But whereas ETH appreciated only 5% in the last hours of the week, SOL jumped 10%. And more today!

Solana's native token has tested its all-time high for the second time this month and briefly overcome it! As I'm writing this newsletter, a small pullback is taking place across the board but I still feel the bias for this week is bullish. Remember it's the monthly close and Uptober is not over. But wait out for BTC to print a clear bottom on low-timeframes (say, 5 minutes) if you are looking for fresh entries. And note it must bounce above $61.8k to maintain its market structure.

In other words, falling above that level means the orange coin has failed to print a higher low after the $67k top and could signal a change in trend. I'm assigning a very low probability to that, but some popular meme accounts are already joking about it, hopefully as a euphoria mitigation mechanism. While it is true that the two ETFs listed last week are akin to other historical "sell the news" moments in crypto, it's also clear from today's visual block that those record inflows weren't just caused by the ETFs and the other channels are still warming up!

Visual block: not the record.

Without context, this could be seen as exhaustion. But the big difference is due to the ETF.
And the previous chart doesn't hint exhaustion as there are many other institutional sources of flows that complement the ETF.

Three things: not three things.

Tweet tip: not limit orders.

Market orders are what create liquidations and what moves price across different levels, as limit orders sit on the book and are "eaten" by market orders, which are placed by those willing to pay for removing liquidity from a market.

Meme moment: not a meme.

Q1 got us DOGE, Q2 got us SHIBA, Q3 brought us SAMO. What's next for Q4?
