The Long-Term Holder Supply is the bread and butter of Bitcoin on-chain analysis as it is a perfect way to determine the current market cycle. As for now, LTH profitability is under extreme bear market stress, according to a Glassnode analyst.

The Long-Term Holder Supply in Loss is currently around historical highs as only 4% of all trading history has shown greater BTC-denominated losses. Such a high percentage of the long-term supply in loss suggests the market is in a deep bear market and will only reverse when the percentage of supply in loss decreases.

Whenever investors' position is at a large loss, the market becomes more anemic as the buying power correlates with the profitability of market participants. With the highest level of profitability on BTC, we saw a spike from around $40,000 to almost $70,000.

Bitcoin is struggling on market

An additional source of pressure on digital gold came from increasing outflows from the cryptocurrency market. Despite the most recent success of BTC, Ethereum and other digital currencies, institutional investors are still moving their funds away from crypto.

Ethereum's Merge update date initiated a short-term rally on the market with BTC reaching $25,000, Ethereum aiming at $2,000 and cryptocurrencies in general gaining around 20% to their values.

Unfortunately, with the lack of inflows and a fundamental change in the monetary policy of the U.S., the market's sentiment remains the same.
