Bitcoin current price and all time high on Coinbase at time of writing
The BTC/USD pair encountered a flash crash on Monday. The so-called CME gap was filled all the way down to $27,710, but the leading cryptocurrency was able to rebound in the evening part of the day, only closing with a short red candle to $31,973.
According to some observers, the BTC’s potential financing rate was already too high, so the long tightening case, which liquidated billions of jobs, was intended to return the financing rate to balance. In general, a lower funding rate is better for long-term uptrend stabilisation.
In addition, bitcoin has been in the uptrend corridor since December 16 on the 4-hour map, which was not affected by Monday’s selling.
