Bitcoin Shifts to a Mixed Trading Bias
Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 76.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.16 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.9% higher than yesterday and 5.3% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.6% higher than yesterday and 21.9% 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.
