Futures Market Updates
The Futures market is bustling with activities. Today’s Open Interests (OI) of all cryptocurrencies are recorded at US$3.32B (+7.79%) and the 24-hours aggregated volume of all contracts at US$194B (+29.33%).
Bitcoin remained the most popular underlying asset for Futures traders and, obviously, the most liquid market: Bitcoin OI accounted for two-thirds of the total OI at US$2.25B while the daily volume of Bitcoin contracts only stood at US$307,380.05. The last cycle of funding rate (-0.0066%) demonstrates a mild buy signal.
Bitcoin Long/Short Ratio reflects the market sentiment on this flagship coin, now clearly leaning towards bullish at 58.75%/41.25%. Most Bitcoin ETFs saw a positive 1-day change, except the highly anticipated ProShares’ Short Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITI), which ended the day at US$37.29 compared to the opening price of US$40.23. We can see that institutional sentiment was not that different from retail sentiment, i.e. the tug-of-war over Bitcoin’s future is still ferocious but the bears are slowly receding.
