BTC and ETH Market Insight


The Grayscale ruling on Tuesday had an immediate impact, causing BTC and ETH to experience an 8% surge after months of grinding down. However, the market completely reversed the gains made from the Grayscale victory pump in just 50 hours. Lowest monthly trading volume since 2020. $ETH experienced its lowest monthly trading volume since 2020 during the past month. The capital seemed to stop fleeing the market as the stable liquidity appeared to have bottomed out.

 


Options Market


The short term gamma sellers with dynamic risk management were hurt on big price swings this week - it rallied on optimism boosted by Grayscale’s ETF case win against SEC and erased all the gains after two trading sessions. The swings seemed to be highly concentrated within a very tight time window. Near-term IVs pumped on the rally and faded very quickly on the plunge to nearly unchanged compared to the previous week. Broadly speaking, the whole option market currently seemed to be far less prone to any sort of rekindling. Although the market remained rather sluggish in terms of volume and catalysts, with Grayscale’s victory we might start to see more plays on the potential upside to kick in.
