Bullish Bitcoin signal

The latest IG Client Sentiment data show 71.2% of traders are net-long Bitcoin, with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.47 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.8% lower than yesterday and 8.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.5% higher than yesterday and 2.3% lower from last week.

At DailyFX, we typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Bitcoin prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Bitcoin price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
