This expectation has been in the market for a long time, even when BTC consolidated and more and more users were accumulating the digital asset. The current value has still remained under $11k, which has been the new support range visible in the BTC market. This level has been seen as a great entry point for traders, as the premium for December futures has also noted a decline.

As the September expiry culminated, the focus was now shifted to the December contracts. The above chart highlighted the rise and fall in premium since August, while currently, it was noting a downwards slope. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange [CME] was still witnessing a higher premium of 6.28% compared to other retail-focused platforms. This indicated how bullish big investors have become on bitcoin relative to other traders. The faltering price of BTC has posed a perfect opportunity for these investors to enter the market, including the low premium of GBTC.

According to Financial analyst, Ian Dyer, the premium remained usually the lowest while Bitcoin consolidates and a rally is predicted. On 30 September, the premium for GBTC was the lowest at 6% which was considered to be a bullish sign in the market.
