Bitcoin Liquidations Surge as BTC Crashes From $69,000 All-Time High Price to $62,000

Seasoned Price Action Trader Says Bitcoin Price Headed For $12,000 - $5,000 Crash Floor

Bitcoin experienced a momentous surge, briefly surpassing the $69,000 mark to achieve a new all-time high on Tuesday, as reported by ZyCrypto. However, this milestone was short-lived as the cryptocurrency swiftly pulled back to the mid-$62,000 range. This rapid price movement led to a surge in the liquidation of leveraged positions, particularly on centralized exchanges.

Data from CoinGlass indicates that the overall crypto market witnessed over $1.17 billion in liquidated long positions in the last 24 hours alone. This contributed to $1.13 billion in liquidations across major centralized exchanges. Within the Bitcoin market, more than $324 million in positions were liquidated, with shorts accounting for $92.53 million.

Liquidations occur when a trader’s position is forcibly closed due to insufficient funds to cover losses. This typically happens when the market moves against the trader’s position, causing their initial margin or collateral to be depleted.

Bitcoin Correction, a Positive Sign for More Gains?

Despite Bitcoin’s pullback to the $61k range, some analysts suggest this correction could begin a new positive market cycle. Meanwhile, other major altcoins, such as SOL and Ether, sustained their rally, posting daily gains of 2.5% and 3.5%, respectively, according to CoinGecko data.

The pre-halving high for #Bitcoin is likely in.

It never hit ATH pre-halving, but now it did. This cycle is going to be giant, maybe the supercycle.

Corrections happen, reality kicks in, and this is probably that part.#Altcoins to outperform coming months.

Popular analyst MaxBecauseBTC posted his sentiments on X, stating that Bitcoin is following its historical pattern, sweeping past the previous all-time high only to experience a subsequent sell-off ranging from 8% to 12%. According to him, this dip often traps bears anticipating a further decline, leading to a moonshot scenario where the price rises rapidly. He noted that to understand Bitcoin’s current movement, it’s essential to study previous all-time highs and zoom out to gain a broader perspective on its price action.

As of the latest data, Bitcoin has decreased by over 7% in the past 24 hours, trading at $62,477. The GM 30 Index, representing a selection of the top 30 cryptocurrencies, has increased by 0.24% to 141.46 during the same period.

Market Analysis and Future Outlook

The correction in Bitcoin’s price is seen by many analysts as a necessary development following the significant uptrend observed over the past week. Bitcoin has seen a more than 12% increase in the last seven days and a remarkable 50% surge over the past month.

Despite the recent pullback, analysts remain optimistic, viewing this correction as a potential precursor to further price gains. The current market sentiment suggests that Bitcoin’s price could rebound and continue its upward trajectory, especially considering the positive factors such as the influence of spot Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) and ongoing Bitcoin halving sentiments.
