Furthermore, tracking the funding rates on Binance, there’s a strong bullish consensus among derivative traders. The Santiment report notes:

“Historically spikes in funding rate have coincided with upcoming price tops. It’s not necessarily that it’s going to happen immediately but it’s a sign that people are becoming a bit too confident about what’s going on with BTC price. There’s still room to go before we reach a danger zone”.
