Net-Long Positions Sink 12% This Week

Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 75.6% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.11 to 1.

Bitcoin Sentiment Indicates Prices May Rise

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Bitcoin prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Bitcoin price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
