BTC price barely clings to $56,000 support

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that BTC/USD reached new local lows of $55,760 in trading on Wednesday.

This second day of larger losses for the pair came as altcoins also began to reverse their earlier gains, with Ether (ETH) falling below $2,000.

An examination of trader behavior indicates that there are long positions leveraged to the previous spot price, indicating that a further rise is more likely than a further correction. These positions, according to the Filbfilb analyst, need to be eliminated before bitcoin can make a meaningful attempt to reach new highs.

The recent price action has somewhat refreshed the market mix – $2 billion in liquidity over the past 24 hours, including $600 million in a single hour, according to Bybt’s resource tracker.

The big influx to Whalemap took place on the 23rd. March took place at $55172, added monitoring service Whalemap, taking a closer look at the possible bottom.

XRP and Polkadot (DOT) were the biggest losers among the top 10 crypto-currencies in terms of market cap, losing more than 10% on the day. All the chips in the top 50, with the exception of the stables, were in red.

Noted trader Scott Melker has blamed hypersensitive traders.

Bitcoin sneezes and drops a few hundred dollars, savvy traders sell their alts in a panic, and bitcoin’s dominance increases. Good times, he tweeted.

Reminds me of the sophistication of those old coins on store windows.

The alts remain in the Spring Bowl for a dramatic return to summer, and Filbfilb even says the second incarnation of the alts’ season is already here.
