Lately, BTC /USD has correlated highly with the S&P500 so depending on how equity markets open on Monday and perform during this week will we know how BTC will react. We saw a strong rejection above $9,180 on Saturday validating the head and shoulder pattern.
Key levels to watch here are a push above $9,300 (50D MA) which will surely invalidate the head and shoulder (however remember this already failed over the weekend but equity markets open on Monday which can change BTC's direction due to high crypto manipulation during the weekend.)
If we continue down we will watch for the 200D MA support at $8,730 to hold and then the final support of the 50W MA and 100D MA which will be around $8,250. Anything below would indicate bears are in control so longs should be closed and reopened around $7,600 where we have strong ascending support which has taken us above $10,000 in the last two touches.
Like if you appreciate this :)
More than $92 mln worth of longs liquidated in a span of one brutal hour.
Bad actors who operated the biggest cryptocurrency Ponzi scheme in history transferred more than 13,000 BTC the day before this massacre happened.
This is not your typical sell-off since the market is most likely taking a hit from a lone whale. He states that PlusToken tries to suppress Bitcoin's every bullish move.
Numerous massive sell-orders on the Bitfinex exchange that were opened just in a span of a few minutes.
While the idea of PlusToken ruling the roost in the cryptocurrency market might sound bizarre, it was actually proved by Chainalysis back in December. The crypto sleuth linked the $3 bln scam to every major Bitcoin dump in the second half of 2019. Notably, the Bitcoin price peaked in 2019 right after the Chinese police cracked down on the token.
Chainalysis estimated that PlusToken had 20,000 more BTC to sell, which might mean that this nightmare might be already over for Bitcoin once the fraudsters cash in all their ill-gotten coins.
I mean what’s the point if anyone can apparently mess with it...People are saying it’s unstoppable etc but if 3 Billion worth of BTC can continue to to keep BTC down - then government/central banks would have no problem controlling it...I mean what’s 3B to a country- let alone a central bank like FED or EZB...disenchanting:/
