Bitcoin bites into major buy wall

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD nearing $58,000 at the time of writing, hitting its lowest since Oct. 15.

The move follows multiple retests of $60,000, with Bitcoin now taking liquidity in a large support wall with $57,000 as its base.

Analysts, as Cointelegraph reported, were already prepared, with some data suggesting a deeper dive to a low as $50,000 would still preserve the overall bull trend.

Commenting on the situation meanwhile, Charles Edwards, CEO of investment firm Capriole, blamed leveraged traders for sparking the volatility.

“Basically Bitcoin looks incredible here on most metrics, but leverage traders have gone out of control,” he argued.

“We won’t get sustainable price rises until that changes.”

Data showed $500 million being liquidated in a single hour across cryptocurrency.
