BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

The current market expectations are for the Fed Funds Rate to be paused on December 13, and then cut by 25 basis points to a range of 5.00-5.25% by May 1, 2024. Global X's spot bitcoin ETF application decision has been delayed by the SEC. In just 15 days, the Onchain Derivatives market has exceeded $35 billion USD in volume, surpassing the total volumes traded in September. NFT Volume has recently rocketed to the highest levels seen in months. Despite the recent increases in the price of crypto, retail interest remains low with search volumes remaining similar to 2019 levels.


Options Market

 

Both BTC and ETH had some retracements this week but seemed to be well supported. The emerging narrative of a possible ETH spot ETF ran out of steam to push the spot to break the pivot resistance of 2.1k. ETH/BTC ratio cooled off from last week’s rally. RVs remained relatively elevated - 42 points for BTC’s 7-day RV and 51.5 points for ETH. Volatility spread between BTC and ETH stayed rather flattish with ETH’s trading at a marginal premium. Skew shifted a bit to puts yet still favoured calls.
