Capo shared Bitcoin’s chart suggesting that all indicators point towards “bearish” signals. He also warned followers that another crash could wipe away their investments. The analyst also claimed, “I remain out of the market.”
“What we have here for BTC is basically a range. Now the key is know if it’s‘ accumulation or redistribution. Range is small compared to the other ones. Accumulations are usually big. Funding is mostly positive. Open interest is building up like crazy (positions opening) and cumulative volume delta increasing a lot, which means that the longs are aping very aggressively,” he tweeted.
He added that all indicators for Bitcoin are primarily bearish, “In my opinion, this is clearly redistribution. Longs trapped in the same setup we have been seeing these months, while indicators are bearish.”
