The bitcoin price quickly dropped below $50K hours ago, before it started trying to recover back above $47,000.

The rapid movement in the bitcoin price caused a massive liquidation in the process.

Bitcoin’s decline continues after experiencing a sharp price drop over the past few hours.

The drop caused the liquidation of long positions worth more than $200 million.

Earlier today, bitcoin briefly reached $57.5K at 8:44AM ET, after trading stagnated within the $56-57K range.

Then the price suddenly dropped after that, dropping by thousands of dollars an hour.

According to BitStamp, Bitcoin has fallen to $42,000, while Binance Futures has seen the price drop to $42,000.

Since then, the price has rebounded slightly, and is trading at $47,000 at the time of writing this article.

This means that Bitcoin is trading at less than $1 trillion in total market capitalization.

There have been disastrous consequences for these rapid movements in the bitcoin price.

Data from “glassnode” shows that $112.4 million in long positions were liquidated within ten minutes of the start of the decline.

Coinglass appears to have liquidated $221 million in the last 4 hours, the largest bitcoin liquidation since early September.

Bitcoin’s fall appears to be related to the stock market.

The Nasdaq closed in the red today, with a drop of nearly 2% after a very bad week.

Indicators continue to favor the medium to long term bullish outlook for Bitcoin, in the form of an extended bull market despite the pullback.
