Spotting Market Tops and Dips by looking at Perpetual swaps funding rates

According to eminent Technical Analyst, Alex Kruger, one can spot Market Tops and dips by checking out the perpetual swaps funding rates. When funding rates here are 0.1% and above every 8 hours, it means investors are over excited so the time for a deep correction would be coming soon .

At this time Alex, recommends investors to book partial profits and not buy more cryptos this time, as a market top may be in place.

Similarly, in the opposite scenario where perpetual swaps funding rates are low at 0.01% and below every 8 hours, it could signify a dip, which is a good time for investors to buy up cryptos that are low in price and available at a discount.

This strategy should be used in conjunction with fundamental trading analysis that my crypto cats have explained in an article that you can check out here.
