Bitcoin shorts increasing on BitMex, now over 30,000 shorts

Bitcoin looks like it has found an area of support around $12,000, however Bitcoin shorts on BitMex are steadily growing. 

With the increase in Bitcoin shorts on Bitmex, Bitcoin could be heading for a major move as Bitcoin shorts on margin trading exchange BitMex surpassed 30,000 shorts versus 20,000 longs.

The increase in short trades indicates that traders feel BTC could continue to see a bigger correction after touching a new yearly high around $14,000. However, in the past, Bitcoin has seen a massive surge upwards when shorts begin to grow as seen earlier this year. 

Currently BitMex has seen $12 million in shorts liquidated over the past six hours compared to $5 million in long liquidations. 

Bitcoin looks to have leveled out after a volatile week in price, and now sits around $12,000. All eyes will be on the price, which some say could retest $9,000 levels again before attempting to chase down the all-time high of $20,000.
