Crypto Market Liquidations Cross $290 Million

Bitcoin Recovery Could Change Trajectory Of Liquidations

As mentioned above, the crypto market liquidations have been mostly dominated by long trades given that the Bitcoin price has continued to crash. However, with the price showing a tendency to bounce back up, rising above $57,900 at the time of this writing, shorts are beginning to feel the heat.

Coinglass data shows that long liquidations have fallen from 88.61% in the last 24 hours to 56.48% in the last hour. If the price continues to rise, then short traders, spurred on by the bearish wave, could suffer more crashes from here.

Despite positive sentiment being eroded, the Bitcoin daily trading volume has seen a notable 50% jump, bringing it to $37.59 billion. So far, bulls seem to be developing support, which makes it the point to hold if the recovery is to continue from here.

Bitcoin is currently trading at $57,909, with a 3.87% decline in the last day. It’s down 5.23% on the weekly chart and 15.95% on the monthly chart.
