Traders who are currently in loss are most likely retail or private traders who have bought the cryptocurrency right at or close to the top. After those trader markets sold the Bitcoin, a cascade of liquidations took place on the derivatives market.

The SOPR indicator

The SOPR is a relatively simple on-chain data indicator that can reflect the current benefit of each exit on the blockchain or simply determine the ratio between the price of a buy order and the price of a sell order.

If the SOPR value is greater than one, it means that a trader exited the market at a gain. In this case, most short-term traders have exited at a loss, which usually means that they are going to look at the entry as the price reaches their exit point. According to market data, the largest selling pressure was present around $56,000-$55,000.

Current market structure

As for now, Bitcoin is going through a slight recovery by gaining back 2.1% of its value, while losing around 8.7% the previous day. The Bitcoin sell-off has begun in accordance with a global financial market correction, caused by new pandemic measures that countries are currently taking.
