BTC and ETH Market Insight


The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates by 25 basis points to their highest level since 2001, and future decisions regarding rates will be based on forthcoming economic data. There has been a minimal market response, as stocks, bonds, and the dollar have barely moved. Crypto prices continued to range, and the volatilities were at their year low level. BTC dominance has slipped 3% since the start of July, and it could be a sign of strong alt markets coming.




Options Market


The volatility in cryptocurrency has decreased significantly, with both BTC and Ethereum recording a 10-day realized volatility of approximately 25%, nudging quite close to historical lows. The ETH term structure has taken a considerable hit this week, falling by about 6-7 vols, while the volatility spread between ETH and BTC is decreasing, dipping below zero. The BTC skew term structure has become steeper, suggesting that dipps represent a solid buying opportunity. Option volumes have relaxed, but flows remain tipped to the upside, with large outright calls being bought for both BTC and ETH.
