How Will Markets React to the $1.5B Crypto Options Expiry?

On July 5, almost 18,000 contracts with a notional value of $1 billion in Bitcoin options are set to expire. The large end-of-quarter contract expiry last Friday was substantially larger than this week’s expiry event. The put/call ratio of the current batch of Bitcoin derivatives is 0.65, which indicates that nearly twice as many long (call) contracts as short (put) contracts are expiring. Following this week’s severe market drop, the maximum pain point, or level at which the majority of losses will be incurred, is $61,500, which is considerably higher than current spot prices.

Just after the quarterly delivery, the market saw huge volatility, with major term IVs (implied volatility) increasing significantly, a good opportunity for institutional sellers to build positions. The market atmosphere is more pessimistic, and the IV of put options on BTC & ETH has risen significantly, and the term structure shows an inversion of far-low and near-high.
