The number of addresses in profit or at a loss is an important metric for Bitcoin analysts. It gives a rough estimate of how investors have been affected by the recent bearish conditions. It can also be used to evaluate the impact of sell pressure.

According to a recent Glassnode alert, the number of Bitcoin addresses at a loss just reached a new monthly high.

The above means that Bitcoin’s breakeven point is above the current level and confirms the short-term focus. Meanwhile, the BTC amount of supply last active over 10 years just soared to a new ATH. This suggests that long-term holders have not shifted their perspective despite the harsh crash.

Bitcoin options open interest declined considerably since mid-August. However, it has also not bounced back in a manner to suggest that the bulls might be about to make a strong comeback. This could signal that the market is not yet clear in terms of recovery.
