Bitcoin Trader Now Mixed After Strong Rally
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide and real-time data.
Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 69.3% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.25 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 15.7% higher than yesterday and 1.6% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 14.9% lower than yesterday and 18.2% higher from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Bitcoin prices may continue to fall. Positioning is more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Bitcoin trading bias.
