AN INCREASE IN NET-LONG TRADERS FROM LAST WEEK

Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 72.9% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.69 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.5% higher than yesterday and 2.8% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.8% lower than yesterday and 10.0% lower from last week.

BITCOIN SENTIMENT SUGGESTS BEARISH BIAS

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.
