Institutional Traders Turned Bearish

BINANCE:BTCUSDT   Bitcoin / TetherUS
Coinbase premium has significantly dropped to the negative territory. With more institutional traders on Coinbase and more retail traders on Binance, the Coinbase premium over Binance’s BTC price has been a good gage of the institutional trader sentiments. Institutional traders have been willingly paying premiums throughout the past 2 years of crypto market boom and have just recently started trading at discounts. This is a sign that institutional traders are more bearish than retail traders in the current market.

While we could have relief rallies in the meantime, the return of institutional faith in the market is needed for any significant uptrend. In both the 2019 and Covid bottoms, the Coinbase premium turned significantly positive, which we have a long way from in the current market.
