This is a rewrite of the original:

Ratio of bitfinex longs versus the total btc in positions. Maybe a good indicator of market sentiment. It allows you to see too where were people taking profit or closing positions. Remember that ratio going up doesn't necesarily mean more longs positions are being added. It could mean shorts are closing position massively. The conversely is also true.
