Trader Sentiment Suggests Bitcoin Could Fall Lower
Be sure to check out our Bitcoin Trading Guideif you're new to cryptocurrencies!
Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 73.3% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.75 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.2% higher than yesterday and 8.6% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.5% lower than yesterday and 0.4% 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. 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.
