  • There were several major red flags in Bitcoin's on-chain and social data ahead of the coin's 8.5% dump yesterday
  • Assets covered: Bitcoin
  • Metrics used: Exchange inflow, Token age consumed, Social volume

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is once again attempting to break the infamous $9000 resistance level, currently hovering tightly around the $8,914 range.

In fact, the top-cap coin went as high as $9370 during the day yesterday before experiencing a swift, short term correction - at one point falling to as low as $8,568 before bouncing back.

Which begs the question - were there signals that a short-term Bitcoin correction was imminent during Bitcoin's move above $9300 yesterday?

Yes. We’ll cover 3 of those signals here.
