Likewise, JP Morgan analysts argued that the correlation between entry and exit movements in the funds and the latest rallies in Bitcoin has reduced. According to the New York firm, the correlation between both assets fell to 0.6 points this Wednesday, well below the 0.78 points on February 7 or the 0.84 on January 31; According to JP Morgan, a reading equal to or greater than 0.7 points establishes a “high” correlation, while one below this mark establishes a “moderate” correlation.

The SEC has a total period of 240 days to respond to these types of requests, which include important names such as BlackRock, Grayscale, VanEck or Fidelity, among others.
