While trying to explain the dip and the shift in the Options Market, Deribit Insights notes:
“There is still an absence of any institutional long-term hedging. In fact, funds continue to take advantage of selling June-December expiry put options at strikes below $40,000,”
According to the Head of Risk and Product in Deribit, Shaun Fernando:
“The strategy of selling the downside puts is two-fold: to get premium (theta) which is higher with higher volatilities, and also because the traders don’t think a crash will happen before that expiry.”
For those who maybe considering testing the Options market, it is important to understand that trading options, be it “call” or “put” is may turn out to be a limited profit endeavor and can bring with it unlimited losses. Institutional investors and high net-worth individuals with large capital may be the best players in the Options market.
