BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Regulatory actions, geopolitical tensions, and other external factors have increased market volatility, resulting in a sudden price downturn. In Q1 2024, GDP growth decreased to 1.6% from the previous quarter's 3.4%, while the US Core PCE Price Index increased sharply from 2.0% to 3.7%. Biden's 2025 budget plan aims to introduce a 45% tax on capital gains and eliminate crypto tax loopholes. The SEC has postponed its decision on Grayscale and Franklin Templeton's spot Ethereum ETF proposals. Investors are reevaluating the markets post-halving.


Options Market

 

The market shaked off from the nerve of the geopolitical risk. Spot recovered from the dip and has since consolidated in an uptrend channel but in a narrower price range. Realised volatility plummeted due to the choppiness of the market - 7D BTC realised volatility fell below to 37 and ETH to 49 respectively. Implied volatility decreased in tandem with RV. Skew drifted back to favour calls for BTC and cooled off towards neutrality for ETH.
