Word on the street is that Bitfinex has accidentally switched longs and shorts tickers.
Just kidding. This is a mean reversion tool used to find increases in positions, where hopefully there will be a squeeze soon after.
It works by having a scrolling input to make it easy to scan.
Options to view shorts, longs, and the ratio. And options to view current...
Pretty much Self-explanatory :)
The columns (green and red) are difference in long and short positions during that period. Positive number suggests more number of long positions and vice-versa.
Works for all allowed crypto-pairs.
A similar indicator was published by another user, but sadly he closed the source code
This indicators shows the changes in margin data for Bitfinex from previous bar. This means if you're looking at the 1 hour chart, it will show changes since the previous hour. 1 day chart = changes since the previous day.
Useful for seeing if a price move was due to stop runs, if a trade has become too crowded, or whatever wacky theories you have for margin...
This is a rewrite of the original:
I really like the above script (Thank you Pastafarian!) but it was annoying that
it always took so long to load, so I made some edits so it would run faster.
Basically I replaced all the custom code (the sum loop and the calculations)
