CME is the new king of Bitcoin derivatives
What is open interest? It is a calculation of how many open positions there are in terms of derivatives in a certain market and in a certain place. CME has recently been on top Binancewithin this particular ranking, and it is a signal that we must be prepared to interpret in order to understand why the Bitcoin market is so buoyant, even in spite of very low spot volumes.
CME is not a market like others: it is a market that gathers more sophisticated investors than those from crypto exchange, investors who are all or almost all institutional. The reading we can interpret this data is that these are the ones giving Bitcoin a boost, on the wave of enthusiasm that has been triggered by the next (and almost certain) arrivalSpot Bitcoin ETF.
The situation, therefore, is different from the one that happened during other races Bitcoin and which speaks of a market deeply distant from the last one bull season.
Why might this be a good sign?
Because this means that historical investors in the crypto and Bitcoin world, small traders and those who are mainly concentrated in their activities in this market, have not yet managed to ride this wave.
And so there could be additional room for the price to chase its all-time highs, although the issue could take longer than many expected. The data that needs to be obtained is that in any case we are faced with a situation of strong anomaly compared to the historical one.
