Bitcoin’s Brief Sell-Off - by Joseph M. Wagner II

Bitcoin Is trading dramatically lower today after a large sell order originating in Luxemburg sparked a sell off  resulting in a nearly 10% decline in pricing. According to CNN, “Bitcoin’s mammoth rally suffered a devastating setback on Friday when a $35 million sell order triggered a vicious flash crash on Bitstamp. By the time the dominoes had stopped falling, the bitcoin price had plunged as low as $6,894, and more than $32 billion had vanished from the crypto market cap.”

As of 5:00 PM EDT BTC futures are trading down by $760 at $7115 on the CME. On an Intraday basis BTC dipped down to approximately $6300 before quickly recovering back above $7000. This sell-off today reinforced that support still stands at $6424 the .618 percent retracement, and as we spoke about earlier this week. BTC futures did in fact “fill the gap” and traders waiting to buy on a dip got an opportunity albeit a brief one.
