Bitcoin continues to show signs of strength.
The Short positions at Bitfinex are now higher than those that preceded the breakout which took us from 4-5k
The Long positions at Bitfinex are now the same as those that preceded the breakout which took us from 4-5k
Bitcoin continues to grind up, without sign of there being any leveraged positions being taken up...
Total leverage exposure is starting to reach towards lows which have been seen at each previous top preceding a dump in this market.
Longs have increased from 20k to 30k from $6k
Shorts are reaching the 20k lows which we have seen in advance of each previous dump
Conclusion – Retest of 3k coming.. eventually it will be but prly need to clean these longs out first.

I probably won't be posting any new charts this week since I have to take care...

SHORTS seem to be near a critical amount AND LONGS are at a vital last stand for massive opening of positions.
This is about...
BTC Longs have reached a critical support level that coincided with the recent top at the apex of the last rally off of the 200 Week MA. A break through this support level may indicate an important trend change leading to a double-top or higher high in the coming days.
tin this chart we can see, that when longs and short both decreased a short term uptrend was the result.
We can see it in the rectangles in the purple areas.
The white line is BTC. The red line are the shorts to visualize it more visually.
The verticals show the points when btc longs AND shorts both fall down- this happened 3 times.
