Vance Spencer, co-founder of the crypto firm Framework Ventures, has recently voiced a strong forecast for the US stock market, hinting at the onset of a potential bull market. In a message on X (formerly Twitter), Spencer highlighted a significant shift in investment trends.
The co-founder of the crypto firm Framework Ventures revealed that this change in investment patterns could spell a potential surge in the US stock market.
Crypto Expert Predicts US Stock Market Poised For Bull Run
Spencer pointed out the existence of $6 trillion in US Treasury bills, predicting a substantial portion of these funds will soon migrate into the stock market. This movement, he believes, will be triggered by a pivotal moment – the S&P 500 index hitting a new all-time high.
According to Spencer, the index is merely 0.5% shy of this landmark, and once achieved, it could mark the beginning of a new bullish phase for the stock market.
Spencer’s prediction appears to be grounded in the psychological impact of market movements on investors. The fear of missing out (FOMO) on a surging stock is expected to drive investors to reallocate their treasury bills into equities.
According to Spencer, this reallocation is not just a mere shift of assets but a response to the torment caused by being unallocated during a market rally. “The money must flow,” he emphasized, suggesting a widespread anticipation of profit-making opportunities in the rising market.

What This Means For Bitcoin
The ramifications of a thriving US stock market extend beyond conventional stocks. Spencer’s forecast aligns with recent developments in the crypto space, particularly the growing institutional interest in Bitcoin.
The approval of several spot Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) in the US marks a significant milestone, linking the crypto market with the broader stock market trends. An upswing in the stock market will likely positively influence these spot Bitcoin ETFs, enhancing their appeal and potentially boosting BTC prices.
This could happen in several ways, including increased investor confidence, diversification into alternative assets, perception of market stability, correlation trends, and positive market sentiments.
Echoing the influence of spot Bitcoin ETFs in the BTC market, Michael Van de Poppe, a renowned market analyst, has shed light on this interplay. He explains that as institutional funds flow into spot Bitcoin ETFs, the demand and, consequently, the price of these funds are expected to rise.
This price movement is a barometer of market sentiment and investor interest. Spot ETF issuers, in response to increasing demand, must maintain adequate Bitcoin reserves as collateral, thereby fueling further demand for Bitcoin.
Van de Poppe anticipates that institutional investment through spot ETFs could channel an estimated $200 billion into Bitcoin, potentially impacting the crypto’s market price.
