June has historically been a tough month for Bitcoin, showing negative average performance since 2013, according to Coinglass. Alongside September, June is one of the only two months where Bitcoin consistently struggles. The digital asset is down over 12% for the second quarter of 2024, with only one week remaining.

Despite the recent downturn, there are potential positive signs on the horizon. Historically, July tends to perform better than June. Additionally, the upcoming round of 13-F filings for Q2 Bitcoin ETFs and the potential launch of Ethereum ETFs in July could provide much-needed tailwinds for the market.
