BTCUSD Shorts at ATH, Longs/Shorts ratio at all time low

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
This is BitFinex shorts/longs total amount in BTC at the bottom
Shorts at an all time high, shorts to longs ratio is at an all time high as well, by far.
Maybe just a bit of spook is needed to make the shorters shit their pants I think.
But I think this weak news (the rejected ETFs to be reviewed) are not enough to spook bears. Really, a decent price pump, THEN followed by bull news might start the short squeeze.

Too early to call entries/stops/exits.

A possible way to play this would be to get into a small but long-term position when the price exits this range of 6900 - 6200, going long if the price breaks 7000 and short of price breaks 6200. BUT I really don't like that setup. I will stay on the sideline for now.
Comment: In hindsight would have been a great long trade. Now the shorts value has dropped by a lot and is actually slightly below longs value now.
Comment: Lesson to learn here - be bold when such rare opportunities present themselves.
