Bitcoin Shows Signs of Weakness

New to Bitcoin? Be sure to check out our new Bitcoin Trading Guide!

Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 77.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.44 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.4% higher than yesterday and 43.7% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.3% lower than yesterday and 3.3% lower 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. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger Bitcoin-bearish contrarian trading bias.
