On-chain indicators that could signal a bear market reversal

Realized price is an indicator often used to determine market movements in bear and bull markets. The realized price, defined as the value of all Bitcoins at their purchased price divided by the number of coins in circulation, effectively indicates the cost base of the network.

Dividing the network into cohorts allows us to reflect the total cost base for each major group of Bitcoin owners. Long-term holders (LTH) and short-term holders (STH) are the two main cohorts driving the market. LTH are all addresses that have held BTC for 155 days or more, and STH are addresses that have held BTC for less than 155 days. .

The LTH-STH cost base ratio is the ratio of long-term holders to short-term holders’ realized prices. Given the historically different behavior exhibited by LTH and STH, the ratio of their realized prices can indicate how market dynamics are changing.

For example, we see an upward trend in the LTH-STH cost basis ratio when STH realizes more losses than LTH. This shows short-term holders selling BTC to LTH, indicating an accumulation phase of the LTH-led bear market.

The downward trend in the ratio shows that LTH is consuming coins faster than STH. This shows the distribution stage of a bull market where LTH sells his BTC for profit and STH buys it.

An LTH-STH cost basis ratio greater than 1 indicates that the LTH cost basis is higher than the STH cost basis. This has historically correlated with surrendering late bear markets that turned into bull markets.
