According to data provider Skew, the consecutive rising price triggered short liquidations on BitMEX worth over $12 million, at press time. The highest liquidations took place at 0500 UTC when $8.5 million worth shorts were liquidated indicating a buying pressure in the market.

On 29 March, the Bitcoin price saw sell liquidity enter the market as the coin began to fall at 1800 UTC from $6,109.50. It plunged by almost 4% in an hour to $5,918.02, which resulted in a spike in sell liquidations of $11 million in a single hour. This could indicate that the traders have been cautious about the rising pressures in the market and chose to opt out when the price dipped once again.

This set off many strong liquidation points and contracts worth $33 million were executed in a day. Sell liquidation took a lead with $19 million, indicating higher selling pressure. While the remaining $15 million in buy liquidations suggested traders building the market.

Bitcoin’s growing price also seeped into Etherem’s market as the coin was also reporting a 5.40% boost in its value. This boost triggered liquidations worth $109k on BitMEX on 30 March alone.
