Cryptocurrency Weekly Analyst Report from delta.theta: December 8, 2021

Today, according to tradition, with the analyst delta.theta, we will consider all the most interesting things that happened on the market over the past week.

Consolidated after the drawdown in the week 23. 12 – 31. 13, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization suffered another drop, this time towards the end of the week 31 . 13-5.14. Within a few hours, the index fell from 2. 75 T to 2. 12 T, recovering by the end of the period only up to 2. 29 T. The overall drop for the week was 13. 06%.

If the week 26. 13 – 29. 13 the fall in the market was caused by the manipulation of large holders, then the reason for the fall in the week 32. 13-5.13 has become a banal “panic sale” in many ways. At the end of the week, the BTC price decreased by 16. 64%, descending in the moment in the area 44 06.

ETH price dynamics were slightly different from the first cryptocurrency. By the middle of the week, the price is from to 5000, then adjusted to district 4600 and only then there was a drop similar to BTC falling to the mark 4600. After the recovery, the final drop in the price of ETH at the end of the week was only 3.7%.

BTC and ETH balances on exchanges have mixed towards input as asset prices fall. Many traders sold their assets in the red, fearing a further decline in the market. Nevertheless, many large players bought out the drawdown.

Confirmation of the above can be found by examining the situation with the balance of stablecoins: their inflow to exchanges increased even during a sharp drop in prices (it is obvious that traders started them to buy out the drawdown) .

Regarding the volume of open interest for futures on BTC and ETH, this week we can again see the achievement of local lows, which is not surprising against the backdrop of price collapses and the general atmosphere of fear in the market. Nevertheless, it is important to note that both the price dynamics and the dynamics of open interest on BTC are more and more different from those on ETH.

week significantly influenced the landscape of the options market. An increase in the number of unbound put options traded signals an overestimation of the potential and growth rate of BTC. However, in general, the market is still in an upward trend – the number of call options is much higher, and the volume of trading in them is not falling. Last week, the most relevant trading level for put options was the strike 60 06 with due dates in December. For call options, it was popular to trade using the call spread strategy, when the sale of call options with a strike date in January (at the mark 100 06) and February (at 181 06) financed the purchase of strike call options 56 06 and 62 06 with a due date in December.
