Confusion in the futures market

BTC/USD dropped as low as $32,200 on Wednesday, according to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView.

The already high selling pressure was heightened further by the depreciation of the stock markets, the strengthening of the dollar and the rumor that China would tighten its crypto bans.

Losing its support of $ 40,000, Bitcoin fell below its very important 200-day moving average.

The lost value in dollars, while normal in Bitcoin standards, caused complete confusion among futures traders, with $ 2.7 billion liquidated in a single hour and $ 6.5 billion in 24 hours.
