A dramatic reversal on Monday sees BTC/USD instantly fill the latest CME futures gap before bouncing off forecast levels below $28,000.
BTC price dips $4,000 in 60 minutes
Data from Cointelegraph Markets, Coin360 and TradingView showed BTC/USD shedding more than 12% in just one hour on Monday.
The pullback gathered pace after choppy trading behavior overnight on Sunday, with altcoins rising to take an ever larger slice of Bitcoin’s market cap dominance.
At press time, amid heavy volatility, lows focused on $27,700 amid a bounce to nearer $30,000.
Exchange activity was picking up, data showed, with inflows rising dramatically on the day after traders removed funds last week.
“Just woke up to the biggest $BTC dip we’ve had since breaking 20k,” Venture Coinist podcast host Luke Martin summarized.
CME gap sees an unlikely instant fill
“If we want to see some support zones on Bitcoin and expecting where we’re going to move from, the first area is around $29,600, second area is around $27,600,” he said just before the major losses told hold.
