“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. To me that says the market isn’t sure what will happen and wants to be covered in either event. This is unusually responsible in this space.”

כמובן, 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, למרות, 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.
