JP Morgan Indicates BTC Could See Short-Term Drop

JP Morgan analysts are also fearing a retracement.

The firm recently released a report about Bitcoin’s short-term and long-term outlook to its institutional clients. According to copies of the report shared through Twitter, JP Morgan analysts currently believe that the crypto-asset is overvalued per futures data.

The firm cited its market positioning indicator, derived from the trends in the Bitcoin futures market on the CME:

“To infer positioning in bitcoin futures, we use our open interest position proxy methodology, where we look at the cumulative weekly absolute changes in the open interest multiplied by the sign of the futures price change every week.”

According to their analysis, the positioning indicator is currently reaching new year-to-date highs. This suggests that Bitcoin looks “rather overbought and vulnerable to profit-taking.”

Importantly, crypto-native derivatives platforms are not yet showing this vulnerability. With funding rates of leading BTC perpetual futures markets still in the neutral to even negative territory, there may be no incentive for long position holders to close out early.
