BTC and ETH Market Insight

The Jerome Powell speech was quite balanced, no new information other than 2% still their inflation target. FTX sought court permission for a weekly crypto sale restart to mitigate potential losses from price fluctuations, aiming for up to $200M. According to Glassnode, over 88.3% of BTC Short-Term Holder supply now was held at an unrealized loss. It might cause further downside price movement in the coming weeks. Crypto markets showed positive momentum after the release of the Nvidia earnings report, but the gains were short-lived.

Options Market

The spike in RV triggered by the selloff last Thursday turned out to be short-lived. Front-end IVs cooled off to echo the falling RVs. The term structure reverted to backwardation for both BTC and ETH after being in contango for a very short period of time. Skew for BTC also calmed down further to neutral-ish as the market stabilised. On the other hand, it is interesting to note that skew for ETH remained little changed compared to last week, suggesting a more pessimistic view on ETH. ETH/BTC vol spread stayed in the negative zone.
