After reaching almost $14,000 in late June Bitcoin has been trading sideways at around $10,000 for the last couple of months, bouncing off the resistance level of $11-12K and having strong support at $9300. It’s been reported that bitcoin volatility levels reached 4-5 months minimums.
After trading sideways around the $10,000 level, it all changed on September 25th when Bitcoin’s price dropped by over 18% to a low of $8,200. To better understand the scale of this downtrend, worth mentioning that on September 24th was Bitcoin’s largest intraday drop since January, 2018 (when bitcoin plummeted from almost a $20,000 price market and started a so called crypto winter.) Ever since that drop, Bitcoin has been hovering in the $8,300 level for the past two weeks. It was only today that Bitcoin saw some bullish momentum that pushed it to a current price of $8,600.
According to industry experts, among the reasons for Tuesday price drop is a slow start of highly anticipated crypto futures platform Bakkt, which is backed by Intercontinental Exchange company. It has been reported that on the first day Bakkt accumulated only around 50 bitcoins (while CME futures received contracts for thousands of bitcoins only during its first day of operation.)
Another reasons expressed are: low trading volume of Bitcoin and a decline in the hash rate, that indicates how much computing power is using to perform Bitcoin transactions.
Margin Trading Exacerbated Bitcoin Price Fall
In his commentary to Coindesk, anonymous trader stated that price droop may have been exacerbated by margin calls and position liquidations on BitMEX, world largest crypto margin trading platform.
The fact that margin trading can so heavily influence price trend shows that during Bitcoin low volatility period margin trading has became an important element of crypto world.
