Moreover, the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) also fell over 0.70% to 110 in the last 24 hours. Also, the CME FedWatch Tool shows a 95.7% probability of a 75 bps rate hike at the next FOMC meeting on November 2.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury is preparing to supply the market with short-term treasury bills to overcome the shortage. Thus, the favorable macro conditions caused whales to accumulate Bitcoin at low levels.
