BTC and ETH Market Insight


US CPI increased for the second month in a row. 3.7% was not seen as alarming, and investors expected the Fed to leave rates unchanged in its September meeting. The BTC price continued to be stuck in this broad 25k/30k range with the move higher in USD and yields. According to data from Glassnode, long-term holders possessed around 2.9M BTC, while only 2.3M Bitcoin remained on exchanges. The decline in Bitcoin's share on exchanges may indicate a growing confidence among investors in its potential for long-term growth or a response to the temporary fluctuations in the market.

 


Options Market


The short-term outlook for BTC and ETH is choppy, with modest gains that are short-lived and a lack of follow-through on the downside. Realized volatility has returned to mid-20s, and short-term implied volatilities have slightly increased. The BTC term structure has moved higher across the curve, while ETH's lagged behind. The ETH/BTC volatility spread narrowed down a little and long-term skew remains bullish for both BTC and ETH, with ETH showing a call premium in the long end. The options market's consistent put skew may indicate waning bearish momentum.
