The Future Funding Rate Perpetual Index above shows that long positions are periodically paying short positions. This means that the number of long perpetual future contracts is higher than the number of short perpetual future contracts.
The high green columns indicate that more traders are opening long positions than short positions. There are two factors leading to the strong increase in the Funding Rate Perpetual Index value: 1. more long orders than short orders are opened, 2. more short orders than long orders are liquidated.
The data provided from Coinglass shows that more short orders have been liquidated in recent days, that is the first mentioned above factor. There is possibly the appearance of factor 2 since the value of the Funding Rate has risen so dramatically, as well as a larger number of traders new opening long positions taking place.
Thank you for reading the news.
