Bitstamp BTC/USD charts are indicative of how traders gave into the selling pressure, with the market’s mood changing relatively swiftly after the peak. Markets are now experiencing some of the greatest profit taking observed in cryptocurrency markets since their inception. The sizeable downward spike from yesterday not only managed to cut through the price rally that kept pushing BTC/USD rates to new all time high levels. In so far, quite a bit of volatility seem to have followed the price crash but no upward swing seemed to have enough momentum for a movement countering the overall selling pressure.
OKCoin BTC/USD weekly futures charts show how futures markets are maintaining spreads of a great size. Notably though, what seemed to affect futures rates more than anything else was the failure of live markets to recover to price levels closer to the peak.
Overall, traders seem to be obviously affected by the notion that the market’s rally might be reaching a breaking point. Traders had a hard time countering selling pressure after the crash and the realization that the rally might not be continuing through a recovery any time soon will most probably make many traders have a bearish mood unless a positive development is observed.
