The analysts chart shows the “interexchange flow pulse, an indicator that measures the one-year cumulative net flows between crypto exchange Coinbase and derivative exchanges.

When the metric rises, it indicates investors are transferring more BTC from spot to derivative exchanges, which means they are willing to take on more risk.

The analysts chart shows that when the indicator increases above the 90-day moving average (MA) of the same indicator as it has now Bitcoin has been in a bull market. A similar pattern occurred in 2017 and 2019-2021. When the indicator dips below its 90-day MA, Bitcoin has experienced a bear market.

The analyst noted in December 2022 that he was closely watching the indicator to see if it would cross the 90-day MA to signal a bull market.
