SEC Retraction


The false announcement sent BTC/USD to within touching distance of $48k before the retraction sent Bitcoin tumbling back to the early $45k area. According to Coinglass data, over $93 million Bitcoin longs have been liquidated over the last 24 hours.

The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Ethereum, was seemingly unaffected by yesterday’s SEC drama and instead pushed higher over the session. Ethereum continues to gain against Bitcoin today, although a longer-term series of lower highs and lower lows remains in place.
