Bitcoin hourly inflow spikes

Indications from CryptoQuant‘s data suggested that Bitcoin could be preparing itself for another round of price correction.

Furthermore, in a recent post, CryptoQuant highlighted a significant surge in Bitcoin’s Mean Inflow. The metric serves as a measure of the average amount of BTC per transaction flowing into exchanges.

The hourly inflow chart witnessed a notable spike, surpassing the thresholds of 15 and reaching 18. Such a surge in the mean inflow signifies a considerable influx of BTC into exchanges.

When multiple exchange inflows with a mean above 15 occur, it often signals a strong possibility of a correction in the coming hours. However, as of the time of writing, the inflow had declined.

Significant impact on Netflow?

A glance at the Netflow metric on CryptoQuant revealed a notable shift for Bitcoin, transitioning from a negative netflow to a positive one after several days.

As of this writing, the netflow stood at over 2,700 BTC, indicating an increased influx of the asset into exchanges. While the volume of inflows may not be substantial at this stage, the persistence of this trend could potentially indicate an upcoming correction.

BTC was recently in the overbought zone of its Relative Strength Index (RSI). While it was still overbought, it gradually moved out and may drop below it if the price decline persists.

Nevertheless, both the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and the RSI indicated that BTC was still following a bullish trend at press time.
