Short-term data from social media indicates that traders do not want to buy bitcoin (BTC) on a withdrawal right now … but the long-term picture looks brighter as a separate study shows that 77% of family offices in the US either look at or have invested in cryptocurrencies.
The BTFD data was collected from posts indicating “buy autumn” on social media platforms such as Twitter, Reddit, Discord and Telegram by author K J Lanaul and published on the Insights Santiment blog earlier this week. He also tells a positive story on a roundabout.
The study found that over the past year, many traders have advocated buying too early in a downward trend as the price often falls further after that and fails to recover in several months.
“Often the public unanimously calls for a dip / bottom before the actual dip and real bottom is formed when the smallest amount is expected, which is represented by little or no mention of anything in Buy The Dip. There are very few signals at the moment. ”
For example, in mid-May last year, after the price of BTC began to fall in response to China’s bitcoin mining ban and Elon Musk-related R & D, almost 68,000 online retailers reported buying into bitcoin’s falling price. fell to around $ 44,000. However, the bottom was not reached until the end of July when BTC was marked at almost $ 29,000.
Lanaul wrote: “The pattern we know is the 3rd wave Buy the dip, which is mentioned during a downward trend that is lower than the previous one, and after 3 waves the bottom occurs before the market picks up again.”
