“Shorts scored their biggest and most sustained victories of the year as Bitcoin and Ethereum fell below $60,000 and $3,000, respectively.

However, Saturday's Bitcoin halving expectations could no longer support the market and market sentiment was further subdued due to the recent slowdown in ETF inflows.

“Despite the rally this morning, the movements of giant whales continue to indicate a lack of confidence in the market, and it is noteworthy that the bulls need more entry support after the halving.”

What Does the Put/Call Ratio Indicate for Bitcoin and Ethereum?

The put/call ratio is calculated by dividing the number of put options by the number of call options. A ratio below 1 means there are more purchases than puts, indicating an upward trend.

For Bitcoin, this rate is 0.64; For Ethereum it appears as 0.42. Accordingly, although these rates indicate an upward trend for BTC and ETH, they alone will not be sufficient data for an increase or decrease.
