Correlation between Long/Short ratio and BTC price

in HODL3 months ago

I am always observing the proportion of Longs vs Shorts on the Future's market in order to stablish a temporary short term previous scenery while trying "to guess" the next moves of BITCOIN and so, the whole crypto market.
Lately I have found an interesting tool provided by

You can check and compare the status of the market by looking the correlation between the ratio of Longs vs Shorts and the BITCOIN price itself.

You have charts in many timeframes, starting from the 5' and ending on the daily, but I find that the most interesting in order to anticipate next movements are the 1 Hour chart and the 4 Hour chart.

1 Hour chart:

Yes, it looks like we may be able to evaluate the "health" of the market with at least 1 hour gap here, anticipating drops and rises of BTC with some advancement.

4 Hour chart:


The same here, but with a longer anticipation...

So, what's next?

Both charts are indicating a peak on the Long vs Shorts ratio, thus, next should be a rise on the BITCOIN price then during the next 4 hours...

May it be right?

heheheh! well, I am just testing the indicator, but looks nice, isn't it?

Oh yes @toofasteddie, the indicator looks very nice but it will probably work until it is heavily exploited by automated bots, right? 🙄


Can you suggest me an automated trading platform with which you have had a good experience?
Maybe you have already written a detailed post about it?

I think BINANCE is the best in terms of user experience, despite I don't like the owner :-)

I fully agree: I used Binance and stopped using it after they froze my STEEM funds for their misuse.

I look forward to the DEX platforms, I think they will soon be widely used.
