A close here (UTC) COULD mark ST top.
Bitcoin Futures Market Lagged Behind on the Run
The futures and derivatives market on Bitcoin is closed during the weekend, however, the on-chain activity and Exchange activity run 24/7. Therefore, the future market which closed on a low on Friday above $6290 opened with a massive gap on Monday, 13th May.
Mati Greenspan, Senior Trade Analyst at eToro tweeted,
The price of bitcoin on the CMEGroup is currently $6,290. How long do you think it’ll be before they open weekend trading on these contracts?
Furthermore, as the price on CMEGroup didn’t make a break above $7500, the short positions on the futures market were affected less. However, the short positions on Exchanges on Exchange were closed at higher prices yesterday as the market went into FOMO.
While it is still trading around $7000, the trading action this week could be significant in setting up another run or a period of accumulation.
Do you think that the bulls are exhausted or investors will start pouring in from the FOMO? Please share your views with us.
