BTC and ETH Market Insight


DXY has shown a bullish bias and reached its highest level since March. Normally, the crypto assets have an opposite correlation with DXY. The current price of BTC $25k was a key support level and it was likely to see the market continue to trend down in the short-term. There was a considerable decrease in trading activity of the derivatives markets of BTC and ETH. The average daily trade volume for Ethereum futures and options markets in 2023 has declined to $14.3B/day, which is approximately half of the average volume from the prior two years.

 


Options Market


SEC's decision on spot ETFs stays as the main upside suppressor as the space is gradually moving towards more regulatory clarity. The BTC term structure was steady, and 1-week ETH IV drifted lower after a noticeable uptick earlier in the week. The volatility spread between ETH and BTC returned to a marginally positive stance in 1-week vol and remained negative for the rest of the curve. Near-term skew for BTC cooled off further but was still in favor for puts and long-term call skew remained present. Skew for ETH, on the other hand, continued to show more downside protection demand in the short run whereas 1-year call skew started to show optimism as the markets are betting spot ETF on ETH will follow once spot ETF on BTC clears its way.
