Bitcoin snatches at major buy wall

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data showed that BTC/USD was close to $58,000 at the time this article was written. This is its lowest level since Oct. 15.

This move comes after multiple retests at $60,000 and Bitcoin now has liquidity in a large support barrier with $57,000 as its base.

Cointelegraph reported that analysts were already ready with data suggesting that a deeper dive down to $50,000 would maintain the bull trend.

Charles Edwards, CEO at Capriole Investments, commented on the situation and blamed leveraged traders.

He stated that Bitcoin looked amazing on all metrics but that leverage traders had taken over.

“Until that happens, we won’t see sustainable price increases.”

Data shows that $500 million was liquidated in just one hour across all cryptocurrency.
