BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

The macro plan stayed the same with three anticipated rate cuts, and Powell also noted the potential for reducing rates even if inflation surpasses their 2% target. Bitcoin ETFs net outflows were approximately $742 million in three days of trading. The last defense line is the support level at 62-63k that could lead to a higher low and initiate a reversal by the end of the month. Otherwise, the most probable situation is hitting the deeper line by April with significant support at $50 - $53k. There's a substantial increase in activity on the BASE chain, with the TVL approaching $1 billion. Most of the current DEX activities on the chain focused on memecoins.


Options Market

 

The ETF inflows seemed to take a breather for the week. BTC net outflows streak hits four days totaling $1.8 billion. The bullish momentum is further dampened by miners selling spot ahead of the halving and the exit of speculative positions. Realised volatility remained elevated for both BTC and ETH - above 70%. Implied volatilities are now trading pretty much in line with RV, suggesting a fair pricing of options. The term structure shifted back to contango with front-end IV falling post-FOMC. Put skew continued to tick up in the front end. ETH/BTC conversion rate now presents a good entry point for the long term but the near-term catalyst is still the prospect of ETH spot ETF approval.

Macro

 

The Fed keeps rates unchanged despite expectations of a more hawkish stance due to strong inflation data. Powell downplayed the significance of the recent inflation spikes, calling them seasonal noise. The Fed still projects 3 rate cuts this year but seems unlikely to change its outlook unless there are significant developments.
