Near $67,000, at the same time, Bitcoin’s implied volatility also hit a new high in the past half-year in the past week, the market is in a high-volatility upward trend, and trading sentiment remains high.

What does this phenomenon mean, and how to safely invest in the crypto market next?

1. The volatility is very high, please use leverage with caution

In the current market, volatility is very high, so you need to use leverage with extreme caution when trading. Implied volatility hit a six-month high, indicating increased volatility in the market. Many traders who had previously profited from high leverage may have held fully leveraged long contracts when the currency price was high. However, when currency prices fall sharply in the short term, these traders may encounter the risk of insufficient margin and being liquidated. The liquidation of a large number of positions at the same time will also lead to insufficient short-term liquidity, aggravating the speed and magnitude of the decline, and thus triggering more liquidation phenomena. Therefore, in a volatile market environment, investors should carefully control the leverage ratio to avoid the risk of liquidation.

2. High trading sentiment, multiple allocation of quantitative strategies

In the last three months, quantitative strategies such as funding rate arbitrage and CTA trend strategies have performed well due to high sentiment for contract leverage trading and increased market volatility. These strategies have achieved excellent performance in the current market environment, and it is expected that the next market will continue to be beneficial to such quantitative strategies. In addition, professional trading strategies are usually able to close positions and stop trading in a timely manner after changes in the market environment, so they are very suitable for allocating funds at any time as needed. In the current environment of continued high trading sentiment and volatility, investors may consider increasing their allocation to quantitative strategies. These strategies use data and algorithms to make trading decisions and are better able to adapt to market changes and volatility, providing more stable return potential.

3. Balance the risk-reward ratio and make good use of the barbell strategy

During the bull market stage, many investors choose to hold a combination of cash currencies or conduct subjective trading contracts. This strategy can achieve substantial returns when the market rises. However, it also comes with greater volatility. As markets rise sharply, investors may face a declining return-to-risk ratio. To balance returns and risks, investors can consider leveraging a barbell strategy. When obtaining substantial principal returns, timely configure some stable income strategies, such as funding rate arbitrage, etc. These strategies can stabilize returns and provide some risk protection. By utilizing the barbell strategy, investors can strike a balance between high-risk, high-return strategies and stable-return strategies. This ensures the portfolios return stability in bull markets and reduces overall risk.

In the current market environment, the volatility is very high. Investors should use leverage carefully when conducting transactions to avoid the risk of liquidation. Market sentiment is high and quantitative strategies such as funding rate arbitrage and CTA trend strategies are performing well, and investors may consider increasing allocations to such strategies. At the same time, in order to balance income and risk, investors can use the barbell strategy to promptly allocate stable income strategies, such as funding rate arbitrage, when obtaining large principal returns, to ensure the income stability of the investment portfolio and reduce the overall risk. Investors should conduct sufficient research and due diligence when making any investment decisions, and make appropriate allocation decisions based on their own risk tolerance and investment objectives.
