Over the past month, open interest surged alongside Bitcoin’s 26% gain, with the cryptocurrency now trading at $44,000. Analysts suggest renewed interest in Bitcoin, but the positions of CME traders remain uncertain. The recent Bitcoin rally is attributed to factors beyond ETF speculation, possibly influenced by macroeconomic conditions.
