Bitcoin Price Loses $19k, Massive Volatility Ahead, Claims Arcane Research Analyst



The crypto market volatility has driven away the market participants as the world’s first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has lost its crucial area of $19,000 and has dropped below $18,500 area. For a long time Bitcoin had maintained its price trade around $19,000 level and now after dropping below the said range, it appears that the King currency might attract more lows.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is valued at $18,354 after a fall of 3.90% over the last 24hrs.

As per research analyst at Arcane, Vetle Lunde, the pace at which the crypto market’s volatility is increasing it seems like the market is about to experience explosive volatility due to huge leverage. By this the analyst means that leverage will spike in the crypto derivatives market.

Leverage in the crypto market is nothing but taking the support of borrowed money to trade with a hope of making more profit through contracts like perpetual swaps. 

Year 2023 To See Inflation Stability

The analyst then says that Open Interest (OI) , which measures the total number of outstanding derivative contracts, was hovering around 500,000 BTC as of October 11. Hence, this suggests a massive rise in leverage while Bitcoin struggles for bull run.

The analyst further says that the current situation is more ideal to traders who can opt for straddle strategy where traders buy both option and a call at the same time with the same price and same expiry date.

However, amidst such volatility and increased bear action, the Arcane analyst claims a bullish stance on Bitcoin for the long-term. He is of the opinion that the year 2023 will see crypto-related regulatory clarity in the US along with lower interest rates and inflation.
