Bitcoin Stablecoin Supply Ratio Shock Momentum Forms “Buy” Signal

As noted by an analyst in a CryptoQuant afterout of the 11 previous such buy signals, 10 were profitable for the crypto.

the “supply ratio of stablecoin” (or the SSR for short) is an indicator that measures the ratio between Bitcoin’s market capitalization and that of all stablecoins.Generally, when investors want to avoid the volatility associated with cryptos like BTC, they move their coins to stable coins. Once they feel the prices are right to re-enter the markets, they buy back into it. As such, the overall stablecoin supply can be seen as potential buying pressure for other cryptos.When the value of the SSR is high, it means that the BTC supply is higher compared to the stablecoin cap, thus there is currently low buying pressure in the market.

On the other hand, low readings of the indicator suggest that there is a high potential dry powder in the market right now. Because of this, such a trend could be bullish for the price of Bitcoin.Now there is a metric called the Bitcoin SSR “shock momentum”, which tracks the rate of change in its value. Here’s a chart showing the trend over the past few years:
