‘Revival in Institutional Interest’
According to the latest Bitfinex report, call options are increasingly becoming the favored choice for investors seeking exposure to the potential upward movement of Bitcoin (BTC). The report highlights that the options market is experiencing remarkable growth, described as “unprecedented.”
The report also observes that options open interest is gradually recovering, reaching $1.15 billion in October. It suggests that this recovery trajectory indicates a resurgence in institutional interest, even though it falls short of its all-time high.
Notably, October witnessed an impressive $4.3 billion increase in open interest for call options, marking an 80% surge. This surge signifies a notable shift in risk appetite and investment strategy, focusing on long-term value appreciation.
Additionally, in October, the total assets under management (AUM) for digital asset products experienced a notable surge, increasing by 6.74% to reach $31.7 billion. This upswing marks the first increase in AUM since July, as reported by crypto data provider CCData in their Digital Asset Management Review.
The average daily aggregate volumes of digital asset investment products also saw a significant boost, with a 44.3% increase, reaching $230 million.
The report highlights that this increase mirrors the positive sentiment of market participants regarding the potential approval of exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Bitfinex analysts anticipate that October will record a growth of over 27%, following a positive September, which represented the second-highest monthly growth this year. They also suggest that November is likely to continue this trend, citing historical data that indicates a 60% likelihood of a positive performance for BTC in November.
