The data supports the theory that there is a growing desire to engage in profit taking even among Bitcoin’s most experienced hodlers at current prices.
Key network indicators show that such profit-taking activity could increase significantly even if the spot price shows only modest growth.
The latest measure of Bitcoin’s Return on Spend Output (SOPR) shows that further price gains will position BTC/USD as a traditional profit-taking country.
SOPR basically shows how much of the BTC supply is being sold in profit or loss. Fluctuating around 1, the ratio tends to be negative in bear markets, and above 1 during an uptrend can indicate an increase in supply, which in turn can affect price performance.
“In a bear market, everyone is selling or waiting to sell at breakeven.” Renato Shirakashi, creator explained In the introduction of the indicators for 2019:
“When the SOPR approaches or exceeds 1, people start selling more and more goods because the breakeven point is reached. As supply increases, prices plummet.”
