BTC - INDECISION IS KING BUT VOLA IS LOW. WHAT TO DO? OPTION#1

Not even the long/short indicator (usually a contrarian indicator) gives us any insight about the next direction.
Its level is 1:1 (excluding hodlers that are long by definitions and do not trade the trend) meaning that for each long position there is 1 short. Total uncertainty among market participants.

Shorts are at their min


And so are Longs


It means that the total number of people POSITIONED in themarket is very low. Many are out.

What to do then?
Tough to trade with leveraged positions, much safer to do it with options. The Volatility is very low, which is the perfect environment to buy options, the direction is not important.
OPTION#1
I am considering buying a straddle ( a call and a put at current price strike), aiming at volatility to go up. I do not care of the direction, if there is an abrupt movement and vola increases, straddle will gain.
(not strangle because it implies a movement first, which we do not know when will happen)

OPTION#2 in the next idea (still linked to low volatility scenario we are in)

We you subtract 16000 from the longs? ((BTCUSDLONGS-16000)/BTCUSDSHORTS) (Gato Negro)

@GoodFellowToo, good question. Always beware and be curious. There is another idea in which I explain that (Long short indicator)
