GREYTHORN OPTION FLOW MODEL
After the plunge over the past weekend, Bitcoin opened at $18,809.
Increased volatility is expected at a series of price levels with negative option supply, namely the intervals between $15,000 & $18,500, and $20,000 & $25,000.
Gamma Supply has turned from positive to negative, indicating that the market will remain relatively fragile over the coming week. Downside liquidity remains relatively low, especially given the considerable amount of hedging that can take place at $18,000. US Fed Chair Powell will deliver two speeches on Tuesday and Thursday, while US & UK GDP data is set to be released on Thursday and Friday, respectively. These events, coupled with a notable decrease in OI after this week’s quarterly expiration, pose a catalyst for volatility to catch a bid into the end of the week.
Greythorn believes that Bitcoin will range below $23,000 over the upcoming week based on our option flow model.

Greythorn’s view of markets is significantly dependent on supply & demand mechanics. As crypto markets mature & attract large flows of capital, their derivatives markets also grow. Derivatives markets tend to have a large influence on their underlying assets as market participants tend to hedge their exposure through spot & futures markets. Our proprietary option flow model has been developed in-house to inform our judgement regarding how positioning across derivatives markets may influence the movement of Bitcoin.
