On Thursday, the market faced its fifth successive day of net outflows, with Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) seeing a significant outflow of $53.1 million and Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC) experiencing a $51.1 million outflow.

The market is now looking to upcoming U.S. private-sector PMI data on June 21 as a potential turning point. If these numbers suggest a Federal Reserve rate cut in September is likely, it could halt the outflow streak. However, if the U.S. S&P Global Services PMI comes in higher than the forecasted drop from 54.8 to 53.7 in June, it might lead to a sixth day of outflows.

With 20 million coins out there, Bitcoin’s market value sits at $1.2 trillion. The price is below its 50-day average but above the 200-day, hinting at short-term weakness but long-term strength.

If Bitcoin breaks above its 50-day average, it could push toward $69,000 and possibly its $73,808 record high. But a fall under $64,000 might see it slide to $60,365. The RSI of 39.47 suggests more room to fall before hitting oversold levels. Investors should watch US Services data and Bitcoin ETF flows closely.
