The Heatmap provides valuable insights into market sentiment and potential trading opportunities. Traders can observe scenarios such as long buildup, suggesting bullish sentiment with increasing open interest and rising prices, or short covering, where short sellers exiting positions lead to potential price increases. Conversely, long unwinding may cause selling pressure and price decline, while short buildup indicates bearish sentiment with increasing open interest and falling prices.
