비트 코인 (BTC) has been struggling to sustain the $55,000 support level for the past 16 일, or basically since the April 17 record-high $5 billion long contracts liquidation. The rejection that took place after the $64,900 all-time high had a devastating impact on the sentiment of retail traders, as measured by the perpetual futures funding rate significant drop.
하나, despite Bitcoin’s recent underperformance and today’s 6.5% drop, pro traders have been buying the dip for the past 24 시간. These whales and arbitrage desk movements are reflected in the OKEx futures long-to-short ratio, as well as Bitfinex’s margin lending markets. As this buying occurs, retail traders are mainly quiet, which is reflected in the neutral perpetual funding rate.
위에 묘사 된대로, the perpetual futures (inverse swaps) 8-hour funding rate has been below 0.05% for the past couple of weeks. For the end-of-month contracts, prices vastly differ from regular spot exchanges, reflecting the imbalance from longs and shorts leverage.
This discrepancy is why retail traders tend to prefer perpetual futures, albeit with the varying carry cost caused by the funding rate changes.
The current 8-hour fee is equivalent to a 1% weekly rate, signaling a slight imbalance on longs. 하나, this level is well below the 0.10% and higher rates seen in early April. This data is clear evidence that retail traders aren’t comfortable adding Bitcoin long positions despite the 9% correction in two days.
반면에, the top traders’ long-to-short indicator reached its highest level in 30 일, signaling buying activity from whales and arbitrage desks. 이 지표는 현장에서 고객의 통합 위치를 분석하여 계산됩니다., 무기한 및 선물 계약. 결과적으로, 전문 트레이더가 강세를 보이는지 약세를 보이는지에 대한 명확한보기를 제공합니다..
위와 같이, the current OKEx futures long-to-short ratio currently favors longs by 94%. This buying activity was initiated in the early hours of May 4, as Bitcoin broke below $55,000. 더 중요한 것은, it signals even more confidence than April 14, when BTC hiked to its $64,900 사상 최고.
하나, to confirm whether this movement is widespread, one should also evaluate margin markets. 예를 들면, the leading exchange (Bitfinex) holds over $1.8 billion worth of leveraged Bitcoin positions.
Bitfinex shows spectacular growth in the BTC margin markets with longs over 50x the amount borrowed by shorts. These levels are unprecedented in the exchange’s history and confirm the data from OKEx’s futures markets.
There’s no doubt that professional traders are ultra-bullish despite today’s Bitcoin dip. As for the lack of appetite from retail traders, their focus seems to be currently on altcoins.
현재, 18 상단의 50 altcoins have rallied 45% or higher in the past 30 일.
질문은 ~이야, can the altcoin rally continue if BTC fails to produce a new all-time high over the next couple of weeks?
