In Brief

  • BONK's price is attempting to breach a key barrier that would boost BONK and establish a new 2024 high.
  • However, investors' mixed signals could cause consolidation, with Open Interest dropping by 20% in a week.
  • On the other hand, the existing contracts in the Futures market are primarily long, as evidenced by the funding rate.

BONK’s price is enjoying the bullishness of the broader market cues, but despite the massive rise, the future appears not so bright.

This is because the investors are exhibiting mixed signals at the moment, which could lead to a neutral-bearish outcome.

Bonk Investors Seem Unsure

BONK price is poised to witness a contraction as investors show slight bearishness. This can be seen in the money being pulled out of the Futures market, evidenced in the Open Interest.

Open interest refers to the total number of outstanding derivative contracts, such as options or futures, that have not been settled. BONK’s open interest dropped by 20% in five days from $13.8 million to $11.1 million.

This $2.7 million decline shows investors are not keen on trading BONK, a bearish sign for the altcoin.

However, investors still hope for a rally despite money being pulled out of the Futures market. Their faith in the rise is evident in the still positive funding rate.

The funding rate is the periodic payment between long and short positions in a perpetual futures contract to maintain its price close to the underlying asset’s value. It reflects the balance of buying and selling pressure in the market.

The negative funding rate suggests that short contracts dominate the market, while long contracts hint at positive ones taking precedence. Such is the case with BONK, which could also counter the bearishness from the declining open interest.

BONK Price Prediction: Sideways Is the New Uptrend

The BONK price, trading at $0.00003783, is slightly above the key resistance of $0.00003769. This is the closing price of the previous 2024 high when BONK reached $0.00004800 during the intra-day trading hours.

However, a close above this resistance is unlikely. Secondly, the above-mentioned factors might reduce the bullishness in the market, which could result in a consolidation. BONK could witness sideways movement between $0.00003769 and $0.00002811.

On the other hand, if either of the limits is breached, the neutral-bearish thesis would be invalidated. A breakout may push the BONK price to $0.00004500 and above, while a breakdown may bring the meme coin down to $0.00002200.
