It was the largest percentage increase of shorts ever. Btw I would never short BTC after a 50/60% move down. The risk reward is way too high.
You all know for example from gamestop what a short squeese can do and how the price bounces. In the last two weeks, the shorts have risen by about 2300%. For comparison, at the last strong drop in march 2020, the increase was only 300%. So for me, this means that a large number of shorts will be closed. When the price was at 60k, the shorts were down. Now at 35k, a lot of people are getting in. Not understandable for me. I estimate for most shorts the stop areas will be at around 40 /42k. Therefore I expect a pump to liquidating the shorts. And the smart money might get some $ soon. Lets see.
Let's see what happens.
Happy trading. :-)
