He notes that many traders kept accumulating short positions in late 2020 in the $10,000-$20,000 only to be wiped out later.

Short liquidations accounted for roughly 10% of hourly buy market orders, according to June. Such a scenario could play out now, giving Bitcoin a short in the arm.

Don’t get too excited  

The fact that Bitcoin could potentially experience another significant short squeeze doesn’t mean that a new bullish cycle is about to start, according to Ju.  

However, it does indicate that the cryptocurrency is close to bottoming out. Last month, Bitcoin dipped to as low as $17,600 before seeing a mild relief rally.

The top cryptocurrency is currently trading at $20,538 on the Binance exchange.
