The week began on an optimistic note, bolstered by the SEC's decision not to appeal the court ruling on the Grayscale Bitcoin ETF. The rally gained considerable momentum early on Monday following the announcement by a news outlet of the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF. However, this news was subsequently debunked, causing the rally, which had propelled Bitcoin (BTC) by over $2000 and Ethereum (ETH) by $50, to vanish.
The correlation between spot and implied volatility remain, particularly in BTC.
Despite substantial movements in the underlying futures, overall option flows saw a decline of approximately 10% through the week.
Options selling pressure eased this morning following the significant rally in both products, as we saw the ETH call overwriter exhibit a degree of nervousness, covering some short call positions ahead of the weekend. Currently, week on week, front-end implied volatility has seen an increase of approximately 10% in BTC and 6% in ETH.Purpose This research is only for the clients of BitOoda.
