Cryptoanalytics platform Bybt released an interesting report reflecting the latest situation after the Bitcoin rally. It turned out that the latest rally in BTC caused massive liquidations of short positions amounting to $1.07 billion in 24 hours.

Short squeeze

Recall that, today, Bitcoin showed strong bullish momentum that resulted in a short squeeze. According to the largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, the price of Bitcoin reached a high of $39,800.

At the same time, on the platform Binance Futures, the cryptocurrency rate briefly increased up to $48,167. At press time, the price of the flagship cryptocurrency varies in the $38,000 mark.

Why did this happen?

This was the scenario in which the prevalence of bearish sentiment on the market led most retail traders to start playing down.

Therefore, the most painful move for the market and the most logical way to get liquidity was a sharp rise, which led to the cascading liquidation of short positions (short squeeze) and motivated the price rise to $40,000.

The inevitable reaction

Thus, Bitcoin rolled back from the resistance at the level of $32.6K, then there was a false break below $30K, followed by a rebound. Resistance at the level of $31K was confirmed as support. After some consolidation, the price of the first cryptocurrency quickly rose to $34K, which caused the liquidation of some short positions.
