Биткойн резко упал, поскольку майнеры продают инвентарь, Паника на спотовых рынках

Bitcoin fell sharply early on Monday, having failed to establish a foothold above $40,000 over the weekend.

Over the last 24 часы, the cryptocurrency declined by more than $8,000 к $32,400, an over 20% fall from levels over $40,800 late on Sunday (универсальное глобальное время). The cryptocurrency was last seen changing hands up slightly near $35,380 – still down 13.6% на круглосуточной основе.

Prices reached a record high of $41,962 янв. 8 and ended the last week with 15% прибыль, its fourth-consecutive double-digit weekly gain, согласно CoinDesk 20 данные.

“Hefty spot selling against an over-levered market caused the price drop,” trader and analyst Alex Kruger told CoinDesk, adding that it is unclear whether it was miner selling or macro traders liquidating positions.

Data provided by South Korea-based analytics firm CryptoQuant suggests miner selling did contribute to the price drop.

The 30-day average of Miner’s Position Index (MPI) – the ratio of total miners’ outflows in U.S. dollar terms divided by the 365-day moving average of the outflows in dollar terms – rose to 2.20 В воскресенье, the highest level since July 2019. A reading above 2.00 indicates miners are selling.

«Индекс позиции майнера выглядит достаточно, чтобы сделать локальную вершину. They’re selling bitcoin,” CryptoQuant’s CEO Ki Young Ju tweeted Sunday.

Some panic selling was seen on the U.S.-based crypto exchange Coinbase. A sell order for 180 bitcoin on Coinbase quickly brought the price down by $1,200, as noted by trader @lightcrypto.

Adding fuel to the fire, a comment by Guggenheim Partners’ CIO Scott Minerd that bitcoin’s sharp rise is “unsustainable” may have injected fear into the market and caused an exaggerated pullback, according to Matthew Dibb, соучредитель, и главный операционный директор Stack Funds.

Most observers believe the price dip is healthy amid the overheated market.

“The derivatives market can relax a bit, with the perptuals funding rate or cost of holding longs declining and futures premium falling,” Patrick Heusser, head of trading at Zurich-based Crypto Broker AG, сказал CoinDesk, also noting heavy selling in the spot market and long liquidations worth nearly $1 миллиард.

Joel Kruger, a currency strategist at LMAX Digital, said the market was severely overbought and in need of a healthy correction. Конечно, the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the daily chart had jumped well above 70.00, implying overbought conditions last week.

“The outlook remains highly constructive, but we wouldn’t rule out the potential for a pullback to the former hurdle-turned-support of $20,000,” Kruger added.
