Position Liquidation On Bitcoin Increases As Ethereum Starts To Awaken
Many traders wagering with future contracts that Ethereum and bitcoin’s price will decline in the upcoming days. They were wrong when it rose to USD 21,000 (BTC). They suffered losses of money that they hadn’t seen in 17 months due to this “short trading” technique.
Data gathered from Glassnode shows that short BTC futures liquidations have reached their highest level since August 2021 over the past 24 hours. According to trader CryptoTommey, this scenario “is infusing bulls with excitement and casting doubt on bears” about the positive feeling generated in a portion of the community.
According to blockchain explorer Coinglass, the total value of short liquidations in the cryptocurrency market over the previous 24 hours was $473 million. 29% of these—or USD 138 million—come exclusively from bitcoin. Ether (ETH) accounts for a bigger proportion, 42%, of the USD 201 million.
Other cryptocurrency dealers, including those of ETH, were taken off guard by the development of bitcoin and its futures traders. Meanwhile, opinions on what will happen to the market once it picks up this week are divided.
According to CriptoNoticias, some analysts believe that with this increase, bitcoin can reach USD 25,000. Others, however, caution that even though the current bearish cycle has been ongoing for more than a year, there is still no proof that it has bottomed out. Consequently, it will be vital to monitoring how it develops little by little.

Although this asset lacks considerable support, it has entered a specific zone of accumulation. It is between USD 1,000 and USD 1,826.6, with the latter value acting as a highly formidable opposition that must be overcome. It truly is a massive wall of bandages. That can either allow the price to continue traveling or lose all of its potency. However, when the price surpasses USD 1646.99 and within a frame of breaching the bearish wedge in that ascending triangle. The genuine signal to purchase will occur, which will lead the monthly volume to grow even more.
For the time being, we know that the start of nominal volume growth will shortly be signaled by a mean-crossing within the MACD, which a landing will follow on the ADX.
