Bitcoin:Traders Remain Net-Long

Bitcoin:Traders Remain Net-Long

The number of traders net-long is 1.7% lower than yesterday and 1.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.2% lower than yesterday and 5.9% higher from last week.

BITCOIN: SENTIMENT SUGGESTS A MIXED TRADING 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.
