Markets overreacted earlier in the week to Trump walking away from COVID stimulus negotiations. For me, it was clearly a negotiating tactic. Clearly, that was the case with Trump ready to sign for Stimulus Checks yesterday and Pelosi and Mnuchin discussing airline relief later today. BTC still very much correlated to how financial markets trade and I think we are going to see us chop around until the election is put behind us. The fact that BTC managed to stay above $10K since late July, I think we're forming a base here for a bull market later in Q4 which is seasonally a strong quarter for digital assets. Two technical levels in BTC I am keeping a close eye on; $10,400 and $10,900. 

In the coming days, we've got earnings starting from next Tuesday and as with last quarter's earnings, I am cautiously constructive on stocks and BTC. Having said that, with DeFi tokens getting capitulated, good demand for this Friday 9 and 9.5k puts as accounts are looking to hedge for a big downside surprise move. My strategy for the next few days would be to buy on dips towards $10,400 with a stop below and scale into 1 or 2-month 12 to 15k BTC calls given the relatively subdued implied vols. Gdluck.
