After KAS rallied to an all-time high yesterday, many futures market traders opened several short positions. This was gleaned from the negative weighted funding rate (-0.0085%) recorded yesterday. 

Funding rates are a mechanism used in perpetual futures contracts to ensure the contract price stays close to the spot price. 

When an asset’s funding rate is negative, more traders demand short positions. This means that more traders expect the asset’s price to fall than those who buy it with the expectation of selling at a higher price. 

Several long positions were liquidated when KAS eventually corrected from its all-time high. On June 30, the value of long positions liquidated totaled $586,220, its single-day highest since March 16.

Long liquidations happen when an asset’s value drops unexpectedly, forcing traders with open positions in favor of a price rally to exit. 

KAS Price Prediction: There is Room For More

KAS’ value may rise further as the bullish bias towards it remains significant. For example, readings from its Awesome Oscillator show that the indicator has returned only green histogram bars since June 23.

This indicator measures an asset’s price trends and identifies reversal points. When it posts green bars, it is a bullish signal, indicating that there may be upward movement or strength in the ongoing trend.

If the current trend continues, KAS’ price will reclaim its all-time high and may end up trading above it at $0.2.

However, a decline may ensue if profit-taking activity gains momentum, invalidating the bullish projection above. KAS’ price may fall to $0.17.
