Notably, several asset managers, such as Fidelity and BlackRock, are seeking approval for spot Bitcoin ETFs, which could potentially result in billions of dollars flowing into the digital asset.

Options Greeks: Vega & Rho
Vega (v): Vega measures an option's sensitivity to changes in implied volatility, which is the market's expectation of future price volatility. Vega indicates how much an option's price is expected to change for a one-percentage-point change in implied volatility. Vega is typically positive, meaning that an increase in volatility leads to an increase in option prices.
Rho (p): Rho measures an option's sensitivity to changes in interest rates. It indicates how much the option price is expected to change for a one-percentage-point change in the risk-free interest rate. Rho is generally more relevant for longer-term options and is positive for call options (negative for put options.
