The meme coin is currently leading the modest recovery of the cryptocurrency market along with Avalanche (AVAX).

According to Coinglass data, over $1 million worth of SHIB tokens have been liquidated over the past hour, with short positions accounting for more than 70% of the sum.

SHIB is down -44.96% from its Oct. 28 all-time high at press time. On Nov. 18, it came close to slipping below the $0.00004 level, hitting its lowest level since Oct. 26.

While the pullback is quite extreme, it was expected by market observers after Shiba Inu's headline-grabbing gains in the second part of October.

Bitcoin and Ether are down -16.67% and -13.91% from their respective peaks.

Dogecoin, the leading canine coin, is down -68.29% from its Elon Musk-driven price record reached in early May.

Despite Shiba Inu's bullish trend being on pause, it keeps being integrated by new exchanges, with Vienna-based Bitpanda opening a euro market for the meme coin earlier today.
