Since Yesterday Bitcoin Net-Short Positions Rose by 8%
Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 72.6% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.65 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.3% lower than yesterday and 6.4% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.1% higher than yesterday and 14.4% 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. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Bitcoin trading bias.
