BTC and ETH Market Insight


US Bitcoin ETFs received the highest inflows since May 3 with $303 million on May 15, as institutional investors turned bullish after the US CPI data met expectations. The surge in BTC prices also contributed to the increase in inflows for spot Bitcoin ETFs. ETH/BTC and ETH sentiment almost reached a bearish climax. With only a month left until the ETF decision, very few people consider it probable. ETH/BTC is highly oversold on shorter timeframes.

Options Market


The bullish sentiment was boosted by the lower CPI print. BTC and ETH both posted a decent gain post-CPI announcement. That said, ETH still underperformed BTC. The ETH/BTC spot spread recovered a bit from its downward trend. The ETH/BTC volatility spread narrowed down as the realized spread dropped below 5 vols. Positive carry makes short gamma positions still attractive. Skew reflected a more optimistic view on the upside with call skew being well bid, making it more attractive to sell calls to earn yield.
