BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

The ETH/BTC pair is finally displaying strength, resulting in a boost in value for all beta coins of Ethereum. $OP, $ARB, and $LDO emerged as top performers. According to Glassnode, over 28,000 BTC worth $1.19 billion left centralized exchanges, the largest single-day outflow in $BTC terms since 14 December 2022. The price has consolidated lower while traders take some profits and deleverage their positions. Solana has hit record numbers in terms of monthly new and active wallet addresses. SOL is 58.4% away from its ATH.


Options Market

 

The BTC spot ETF decision got closer and closer and naturally IVs started climbing up slowly to offset theta decay. This week, we saw a shift of interest into ETH and other alts pushing ETH to shortly break through the 2,400 mark as the market expects the spot ETF approval to put a spotlight on ETH and alts. Skew pulled back to be marginally positive in the near term as quite some call spreads printed this week kept  the upside skew in check. The market had played into this ETF approval for quite a while, the room for a short-term further rally could be limited, thus it makes more sense to buy bull spreads rather than outright calls.
