GREYTHORN OPTION FLOW MODEL
After increasing sharply over the past weekend, Bitcoin opened at $21,836 on Monday in anticipation of this week’s economic data releases.
Increased volatility is expected at a series of price levels with negative option supply (Net GEX), including $19,000, $20,000 and $24,000.
Should price decrease, $21,000 followed by 18,000 are the only two significant support levels observed. On the upside, $22,000 can be regarded as the first resistance level, followed by $23,000. Price levels beyond $25,000 form a continuous resistance zone.
Option Supply finally rebounded from negative to positive after weeks due to the concentration in the August expiration. This should be prevalent in the improved liquidity of the market over the coming week. This supply has allowed liquidity provision to support the market from its local lows. However, considering US inflation data came in higher than estimates, coupled with the Ethereum Merge scheduled for the 15th, participants should remain wary as to leaning their deltas too heavily on either side.
Greythorn believes that Bitcoin will range between $18,000 and $25,000 over the upcoming week based on our option flow model.
