Bitcoin funding price flips detrimental after $48K retest — Was it a bear lure?

As (BTC) misplaced the $52,000 help on April 22, the futures contracts funding price entered detrimental terrain. This unusual scenario causes the shorts, buyers betting on value draw back, to pay charges each eight hours.

Whereas the speed itself is mildly damaging, this case creates incentives for arbitrage desks and market makers to purchase perpetual contracts (inverse swaps) whereas concurrently promoting the long run month-to-month contracts. The cheaper it’s for long-term leverage, the upper the incentives for bulls to open positions, creating an ideal “bear lure.”
