According to data from CryptoQuant, Ethereum's [ETH] Taker Buy Sell Ratio is about to cross over its center line, indicating a spike in positive sentiment notwithstanding recent market difficulties.

A metric called the Taker Buy Sell Ratio calculates the proportion between the buy and sell volumes in the futures market for a certain asset.

More buy volume than sell volume is indicated by a value larger than 1, while more sell volume than buy volume is indicated by a value smaller than 1.

The bears are still in charge

An analysis of the coin's spot and futures markets showed that bearish emotions are still strong despite the increase in ETH's Taker Buy Sell Ratio.

Since February 28th, for instance, ETH's Futures Open Interest has reached its lowest point. It has now decreased from its peak of $15 billion on April 9.

ETH's Open Interest has dropped 27% over the past seven days, to $11 billion as of this writing.

The value of an asset's open futures contracts is measured by its open interest.

It indicates that market players are closing their positions and leaving the market without taking up new ones when it drops in this manner.

The financing rates for ETH temporarily went negative last week on April 14th when a large number of market participants initiated transactions against the price of the coin.

Since the start of the bull market surge in October 2023, this was the first time that ETH had recorded a negative Funding Rate.

Important technical signs seen on a daily chart in its spot market suggested that if pessimistic feelings persisted, there might be a drop below $3000.

At the time of publication, ETH's Awesome Oscillator, which gauges market momentum, displayed red histogram bars pointing downward. This pattern began to emerge on April 13.

Red bars on an asset's Awesome Oscillator that face downward are frequently seen as bearish indicators, indicating an increase in selling pressure.

Similarly, the dots that comprise the indication were shown to be lying above the price of the coin in readings from ETH's Parabolic Stop and Reverse (SAR).
