  • New analysis suggested that BTC’s price could decline in the coming days.
  • On-chain metrics and a few market indicators looked bearish.

According to CoinMarketCap, BTC’s price was up by more than 3% and 13% over the last 24 hours and the last seven days, respectively. At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $24,482.41 with a market capitalization of more than $472.4 billion. However, the table might turn soon.

Trouble in the near term

CryptoOnchain, an author and analyst at CryptoQuant, posted an analysis on 17 February, which suggested BTC’s good days might soon end. As per the analysis, there was an increase in the inflow of Bitcoins to exchanges and the outflow of stablecoins from exchanges – a bearish signal.

A few other metrics also looked bearish for BTC. For instance, Glassnode Alerts revealed that Bitcoin’s balance on exchanges reached a one-month high of 2,267,202.721 BTC. 

As per CryptoQuant’s data, BTC’s exchange reserve was also on the rise, suggesting higher selling pressure. On top of that, the aSORP was also in the red, so more investors were selling at a profit, indicating a possible market top. 

Demand from the derivatives market also seemed to dwindle, as BTC’s taker buy sell ratio suggested that selling sentiment was dominant in the futures market. According to Santiment’s chart, BTC’s exchange inflow spiked in the last few days. Moreover, negative sentiments around BTC also went up, reflecting less trust among investors.

Bitcoin: What the metrics have to say

Continuing with the bearish trend, BTC’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was hovering near the overbought zone, which might increase selling pressure. Moreover, the king coin’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a downtick and was headed further below the neutral mark.

Regardless, the MACD displayed a bullish crossover, giving hope for a continued uptrend in the short term.
