“On the contrary. The price can sometimes lag behind the accumulation line. For example, we had an inflated div in January or September 2020, albeit not nearly that size,” he said in Comment on Twitter.

Clemente highlighted a chart of Bitcoin’s Liquid Supply Ratio (LSR), a metric that currently signals BTC movements for those with low sales history.

“Nothing has changed, the supply shock is still ongoing,” he said, referring to the halving of block subsidies last year.

“LSR shows that the bitcoin action reabsorbed by strong men continues to diverge more than price. The exchanges also fell around -21,829 BTC in the past 2 weeks; There is a clear trend towards accumulation in the same streams. “
