BTC and ETH Options Expire
BTC has been driving the week’s uptrend, yet overall implied volatilities (IVs) have remained relatively subdued. Lower trading volumes during Asian hours due to holidays have contributed to this trend.
However, historical data shows that Q4, especially October, tends to be an uptrend season, offering hope for increased activity in the market.
Looking back at the September 29 options data, there were 118,000 BTC options with a Put Call Ratio of 0.58, a max pain point of $26,500, and a notional value of $3.2 billion.
Additionally, 1.11 million ETH options were expiring with a Put Call Ratio of 0.46, a max pain point of $1,650, and a notional value of $1.8 billion.
