U.Today – Expectations are rising ahead of the Jan. 10 deadline for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to decide whether to give its first blessing for a .

According to a , the SEC “may” notify issuers as soon as Tuesday or Wednesday that they have been cleared to launch spot bitcoin ETFs the following week.

Along these lines, , a crypto analyst, presents what he calls a ” ETF base case scenario,” which he anticipates will happen around Jan. 8-10.

In a positive scenario wherein a Bitcoin spot ETF gains approval, Kruger predicts the Bitcoin price’s immediate reaction to be an upside move, citing the rationale that this is currently 90% priced in.

As a follow-up to this, Kruger predicts that the Bitcoin price might drop below the ETH pre-approval levels (if approved) into launch nearly two weeks later. He adds that this remains speculation given that there is no official date for the launch; it might be days after approval or much later, considering how many ETFs are in the race. However, Kruger believes that sooner rather than later makes more sense.

In what might follow after the launch of a Bitcoin spot ETF, Kroger (NYSE:) predicts strong inflows or volume to reestablish the upward trend. On the other hand, if inflows are weak, prices may fall as front-runners dump into a few bids.

In a bearish scenario where the Bitcoin spot ETF gets rejected by the SEC, Kruger predicts that prices might rapidly collapse. Either way, he urges traders to be on alert in January.

At the time of writing, BTC was up 1.2% in the last 24 hours to $42,620.
