BTC and ETH Market Insight


The US dollar has achieved its peak value in 2023, as the increase in Treasury yields helped to strengthen it. The sentiment in stock and crypto markets has become increasingly bearish. According to data from CryptoQuant, Bitcoin spot trading volume dropped to 6-year low. Investors tended to hold their coins, instead of selling at the first sign of profit. Ethereum faced a potential delay in its Deneb-Cancun upgrade designed to address scalability. MKR, which represents the lending sector, delivered the highest returns in the 30-day period. This has been attributed to the RWA narrative and the DAI Savings Rate effort.

 


Options Market


Realized volatilities receded to the mid-20s, with spot prices consolidating in the range of 26k to 27k for BTC and 1.6k to 1.7k for ETH respectively. Implied volatilities fell at a faster pace on the rebound late in the week. The shift has returned the volatility carry to a negative stance, favouring gamma buyers who have been hurt throughout most of the year. Nonetheless, volatility continued to trade at a historical low level. The desk observed some upside plays in BTC ahead of spot ETF decisions in October.
