75.9% OF TRADERS ARE NET-LONG

Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 75.9% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.14 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.6% higher than yesterday and 2.3% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.8% higher than yesterday and 5.1% higher from last week.

BITCOIN SENTIMENT GIVES A MIXED BIAS

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.
