Bitcoin Bloodbath: Market Volatility Sparks Panic, Wipes Out $1 Billion In Open Interest

0 6

In the last 24 hours, Bitcoin (BTC) has experienced a sharp increase in volatility, with prices fluctuating between $29,000 and $27,000, given the lack of liquidity in the market. This sudden price action has had a significant impact on bulls and bears.

However, as of this writing, Bitcoin has managed to recover the $29,000 level, and it remains to be seen if it can continue to recover and consolidate above its key psychological level of $30,000, supporting the continuation of its bull run or if it will be further slumps in the coming days or weeks.

False Rumors Cause Bitcoin Investors To Liquidate In Droves

According to Satoshi Club, the rumors of the US government and Mt. Gox sales were initially believed to be true, leading to panic selling among Bitcoin traders. However, it was later confirmed that the data was misclassified, and no such sales were taking place.

The impact of these rumors on the market was significant, as traders were already on edge due to the high levels of volatility in the market. The news of potential large-scale sales by the US government and Mt. Gox, a now-defunct Bitcoin exchange, only added to the uncertainty and fear among traders.

The market panic led to liquidating $300 million worth of positions as of this writing and the wiping out of $1 billion in open interest within 24 hours. This was a significant blow to both long and short traders, as many were forced to exit their positions at a loss.

Open interest can impact the price of Bitcoin because it reflects the level of market participation and sentiment. When open interest is high, it suggests greater interest and activity in the market, potentially leading to price movements.

However, the market has since recovered, and Bitcoin’s value has risen again. The Funding Rate has returned to around 0.003, indicating that traders are no longer overleveraged, and the open interest has also decreased, indicating a lack of significant activity in the market.

Will BTC Reclaim The $30,000 Mark?

Material Indicators, a leading cryptocurrency analytics provider, has analyzed the Weekly BTC/USDT chart, which shows bid liquidity moving up and ask liquidity moving down. According to Material Indicators, when bid and ask liquidity becomes more concentrated around a price point, it dampens volatility, leading to a sideways chop until one side makes a move.

Per Material’s analysis, this type of price action differs from what was observed yesterday, as bids and asks were initially moving up, indicating a clear path for a pump. However, as things started getting “toppy,” asks began dropping down, ultimately dumping into the liquidity void created on the way up.

Furthermore, CryptoCon, a leading provider of cryptocurrency analysis, has highlighted the recent drop in Bitcoin’s value, which saw a 15% decline. This drop has allowed the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) indicator to reset slightly, as it nears dangerously close to hitting the Mid-Top .35 line.

The CMF indicator is a technical analysis tool that measures buying and selling pressure in the market. When the CMF is above zero, buying pressure is stronger than selling pressure, and vice versa when it is below zero. The Mid-Top line at .35 represents the halfway point in the cycle for Bitcoin’s true gains.

According to CryptoCon, the mid-top cycle for Bitcoin is approaching soon, but it is only half of the “true gains” for Bitcoin in a cycle. This means there is still significant potential for Bitcoin to experience further gains in the market.
