The cryptocurrency market experienced a drop on Thursday evening after a wave of sell orders was positioned.
The volatility in the crypto market has taken a toll on derivatives traders, with approximately $340 million of leveraged positions getting liquidated within just two days.
According to CoinGlass data, this rollercoaster ride closely mirrors the events from earlier in the week, where bulls struggled to maintain new highs and faced long liquidations.
The macro picture was exciting today, with U.S. dollar weakness resurfacing and offsetting a recovery from the sharp drop on Nov. 14. The U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) approached 104, reaching its lowest levels since September.
The crypto market analytics firm, K33 Research, reported that the absence of an SEC decision this week may disrupt the momentum in the crypto market until the next deadline in early 2024.
The surge in optimism surrounding spot ETFs and anticipated significant institutional and retail inflows played a crucial role in the remarkable rise of Bitcoin, climbing from $25,000 in September to nearly $38,000.
The global crypto market cap currently stands at $1.43 trillion, reflecting an increase of 4.99%in the past 24 hours.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed in negative territory on Thursday, as investors temporarily paused the upward trend witnessed this month. The 30-stock Dow experienced a slight decline of 45.74 points, or 0.13%, concluding the day at 34,945.47. This snapped a four-day streak of gains. On the other hand, the S&P 500 managed to register a modest increase of 0.12%, reaching 4,508.24 by the end of the session. Similarly, the Nasdaq Composite saw a marginal rise of 0.07% and closed at 14,113.67.
