BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Despite CPI coming in below expectations and the Fed maintaining a hawkish stance, the market responded positively at first but then saw downward pressure later. Following this, PPI also fell short of expectations, leading to further downward pressure on BTC. On Thursday, U.S. spot bitcoin ETFs experienced $226 million in net outflows. Overall, the market experienced volatile and mostly downward price action. During a Senate hearing, Gensler confirmed that spot Ethereum ETFs would be approved during the summer.


Options Market

 

A lower-than-expected CPI briefly lifted the market - BTC rose above 70k and ETH above 3.65k respectively. The optimism was quickly dented by a hawkish FOMC - BTC tumbled to 67k and ETH to 3.5k after FOMC. The suppressed realised volatility spiked on the move and the front-end implied volatility increased with revived front-end gamma demand. Front-end skew also moved higher towards puts. The ETH/BTC volatility spread widened at the front due to bigger pullback from ETH but narrowed at the back due to ETF launch delays.
