  • ⁠Markets are quiet with BTC having achieved equilibrium once more, trading in a 60-70k range while ETH awaits the next stage of spot ETF approval.
  • ⁠The market brushed off (maybe too quickly) confirmation that the Mt.Gox wallet move was in preparation for distribution.
  • ⁠⁠The only thing to upset this state of zen is the persistently high spot-forward basis and perp funding suggesting there is still strong positioning and hence possible risk to the downside.

Trade Ideas: We continue to favour longer term ETH bullish trades as well as the zen maximising spot-forward basis.
