BTC and ETH TL;DR
Greythorn Option Flow Model
Following the sideway movements in the second half of the last week, Bitcoin opened higher at $17,113 compared with that of the past fortnight due to Powell’s comments regarding the potential slowdown of rate hikes.
Increased volatility is expected at a series of price levels with negative option supply, namely the interval between $12,000 and $15,500, as well as $16,250 to $16,750.
Gamma Supply turned negative to positive, indicating a flatter market expected over the upcoming week. This is pronounced by the magnitude of liquidity provision at $17,250 and $18,000.
Taking note of several fundamental economic indicators such as US Crude Oil Inventories and Initial Jobless Claims set to be released on Thursday & Friday, along with Japanese GDP, a potential move away from $17,000 remains possible. ECB President Lagarde will deliver three speeches, which may hint at further policy guidance for the Eurozone going into the new year.
Greythorn believes that Bitcoin will range between $16,000 and $19,000 over the upcoming week based on our option flow model.
