Short rates are now falling, but are still close to the annual high. This high number of shorts indicates the potential for a short squeeze.
Short interest in the Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange is up over 1,800% this month; from highs of over 2,800%.
Current Bitcoin Analysis
The similarities between the 2019 and 2021 BDC patterns are remarkably similar. In 2019, you had a downturn in BCD day; many positions were short, followed by a short squeeze. That year, Bitcoin price soared 40% from $ 7,443 to over $ 10,500.
As in 2019, the Bitcoin price was unchanged the day before the BDC; it had been in a range of about 1% for the 32 hours since the US stock market closed.
I am waiting for a small increase in the price of Bitcoin. A price above $ 41,000 is a very bullish signal as additional price increases will depress short positions.
