A decrease in open interest for crypto assets generally means that fewer contracts for futures trades for that cryptocurrency have been bought or sold.

These situations are usually characterized by buyer fatigue as they find it difficult to initiate further price hikes. At the time of publication, the RSI is at 69.31, while the MFI is at 79.32.
While many might be led to believe that the high price was definitive evidence of a continuation of the bullish trend in the market, a look at the Aroon indicator showed that the bullish trend in the market had weakened significantly.
At the time of publication, the Aroon Up line is in a downtrend of 42.86%. The Aroon indicator measures the strength of an uptrend by determining how far the recent high has been reached.
When the Aroon Up line is close to 100, it shows a strong bullish trend. On the other hand, if it is close to zero, the uptrend is weak and may indicate a possible trend reversal.
