73% of Traders Remain Net-Long on Bitcoin

Be sure to check out our Bitcoin Trading Guide if you're new to cryptocurrencies!

Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 73.6% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.78 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.5% higher than yesterday and 0.1% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.1% higher than yesterday and 5.6% 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.
