BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

BTC remains range-bound between $35k-$38k, with altcoins outperforming BTC last week as shown by declining BTC dominance, indicating continued risk appetite for alt coins in the broader crypto market. Binance CEO CZ stepped down and Binance agreed to pay a $4bn fine to the US, resulting in a moderate drop (-5%) in BNB. Despite this, the overall market is relieved with the uncertainty gone and no catastrophic scenario in sight. The OpenAI drama boosted AI-related coins, with $AKT leading the way, surging 61.1% from $1.02 to $1.65 on Nov 23.


Options Market

 

The broad market sentiment remained optimistic on the ETF narrative. The settlement of the SEC and Binance’s saga seemed to pave the way for the imminent ETF approval although the market reaction was initially perplexing. Retracements that took place in the past weeks were well absorbed and supported by the market. Short-term IVs decreased for both BTC and ETH as RV stablised. Despite ETH’s marginally higher realized volatility, the ETH/BTC vol spread narrowed down further to a slight BTC volatility premium.

Macro

 

The major indexes built on gains over a holiday-shortened week: the DJIA added +1.3%, the S&P 500 added +1.0%, and the NASDAQ +0.9%. Slowing growth signals and inflation uncertainty contributed to a 16 billion USD auction of 20-year U.S. Treasury bonds last Monday, while the rest of the yield market remained quiet.
