This trend is notable, as these ETFs had experienced positive net inflows since May 13. However, outflows began to occur from June 10, as market participants anticipated the release of the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for May.

Upcoming Perspectives on Inflation

Jesse Cohen, global market analyst, highlighted the increased market volatility surrounding the upcoming CPI report. He indicated that a cooler-than-expected CPI report could extend the ongoing market rally. However: “a surprisingly strong inflation reading could trigger market volatility, as it could delay expectations of rate cuts and raise concerns about inflationary pressures,” he added.

The research firm The Kobeissi Letter noted divided expectations regarding the CPI data. It highlights that while large banks expect CPI inflation to be 3.4%, prediction markets indicate a 17% chance of inflation above 3.4% and a 41% chance below 3.4%.

In conclusion, the net outflows from spot Bitcoin ETFs reflect global economic uncertainty. Upcoming inflation data could influence market trends, highlighting the importance of investor vigilance in the face of fluctuating economic indicators.
