Aptos Trading Red On The Day. More Negative Trends In Ahead

Aptos’ current trend is bearish. Aptos trades at $8.93 and has lost 3.88% since the writing of this article. Wu Blockchain says the major reason Aptos is losing 3.88% against the US dollar, trading at $8.93. A negative rate is a sign of bearish sentiments and long-sellers will be compensated. 

These negative financing rates could be caused by active hedging. This comes after Aptos’ engineers revealed a lack of knowledge of some blockchain processes, such as the Sybil attack. APT experienced a dramatic increase in selling prices after an unanticipated airdrop. This led to the creation and maintenance of short positions.

As funding rates become blatantly negative, short liquidations often occur, leading to a “short squeeze” or unexpected bounce. There’s no telling where the Aptos price will face next. The price has encountered resistance at the $9.17 level today, and it looks like it will test the level again before trading closes.
