Bitcoin price eyes $55k after Valentines Day Record Inflows

Bitcoin’s (BTC) price broke above $51,000 on Feb. 14 to form a rare Valentine’s Day winning pattern, while ETF fund inflows suggest a possible $55,000 retest. 

Bitcoin made history on Valentine’s Day as BTC prices rose to a new-yearly peak of $52,040 within the daily time frame on Feb. 14. 

Bitcoin enters five-year Valentine’s Day winning streak

Thanks to an unusually high buying trend among institutional investors, BTC price crossed the $52,000 mark for the first time since 2021, bringing its month-to-date gains to 20%. 

The data shows that Bitcoin price has generated 1.3%, 3.03%, 1.13%, and 1.9% gains in the last four Valentine’s Days, respectively, dating back to 2020.

BTC price rallied 3.66% to peak at $52,040 within the daily timeframe on Feb. 14, extending its Valentine’s winning streak to five consecutive years.

Breaking it down further, starting in 2020, holders who bought a BTC the night before Valentine’s Day and sold it at midnight would have earned a total profit of $4,196. 

Looking beyond the price charts, BTC spot ETFs have received significant capital inflows this week, which could drive the rally toward $55,000. 

Bitcoin ETFs AUM crosses $10 billion

In another bullish Valentine’s Day record, BTC spot ETFs saw a record $631 million in net inflows. As the initial uncertainty heralded the Grayscale’s (GBTC) billion-dollar sell-off cools, investors have intensified capital inflows in the spot ETF derivatives products this week.

As of Feb. 14, the cumulative Asset Under Management (AUM) of all 10 newly-launched spot ETF products has hit $10.9 billion.

The ETF entities captured in TheBlock’s computation include BlackRock, Fidelity, ARK Invest/21Shares, Bitwise, Franklin, Invesco/Galaxy, VanEck, Valkyrie, WisdomTree, and Hashdex. 

At the end of the first trading day on Jan. 11, the total AUM of these firms stood at $851 million. This implies the capital stock has grown by 1,150% over the last 31 days at a cumulative daily growth rate of about 9.2%, or $77 million daily. 

Effectively, the chart shows that investors are growing more confident after an initial few weeks of uncertainty, reflected in the accelerated capital inflows. 

If this buying trend continues at its current rate, BTC price looks poised to enter another leg-up towards the $55,000 area in the coming days.
