As cryptocurrency’s bellwether asset, bitcoin is liable to move out of tight ranges pretty quicklyand a look at the derivatives market shows one intriguing trend.

“Volume has been in a methodical downtrend,” said Vishal Shah, a crypto options trader now building a derivatives platform called Alpha5. “This is while price has been inching higher.

بالتاكيد, this risk-aversion might well have something to do with BitMEX’s March 12 bloodcurdling $700 million liquidation dump, which caused a furious amount of activity to subside.

It’s possible, على أية حال, that fewer, less-leveraged bets in derivatives could ease downward pressure on spot prices.

“Such prudential positioning likely favors sideways-to-higher markets, corroborating our view that the lows are in,” Shah added.
