Get The Litepaper

😱 $713 Million Longs And Shorts Liquidated

Do you know what’s awesome about today’s Litepaper? It’s the first one on a Tuesday, which is heavy on the analysis and setups. 

Do you know what sucks about today’s Litepaper? This first new Litepaper is after Bitcion’s new ATH and subsequent sell-off.

Let’s look at the wildness that went on (and is still going on).

Bitcoin Hits New All-Time High Then Someone Punched It In The Face Featured Image

I’m a crypto fanatic. I am constantly observing and looking at what’s going on, and like many of you, the past couple of days, I’ve been glued to my screen or phone waiting for the news when Bitcoin hit a new all-time high. 👀

And now I need your help. Because I need someone to figure out the odds of someone like me, MISSING THE GODDAMN EVENT BECAUSE OF A DR’S APPOINTMENT.

For that quick 45 minutes away from my phone, it happened. FML.

It feels like crossing the finish line and accomplishing a personal best. You celebrate, you cheer, but you look around and your wife, kids, friends, they didn’t even show up. And then some dude randomly hits you in the face with a 2×4.

Let’s see how bad things are out there. 🥵

Dear. God. Those. Liquid. Ations. Featured Image

When bulls get liquidated, bears get excited. When bears get liquidated, bulls get excited. 😁

I have no idea what happens when everyone gets liquidated. From Glassnode’s Liquidation Heatmap, here’s this insane look.

$251.81 million in longs liquidated, $295.7 million in shorts liquidated.

So as I was writing the text above, I thought I better check to see how much worse things are. The image above is from around 0900 EST. Sweet-Mrs.-Butterworth-on-my-waffles things got worse: 

OMG IT’S SO MUCH WORSE – Click to enlarge. If you want to.

Almost 200,000 traders flushed. $476.7 million longs and $286.4 million shorts liquidated. $713 Million Total. 😵

Technically Speaking – March 5, 2024 Featured Image

Well, like I said, this isn’t a fun Litepaper. Instead of finding wen-Moon or wen-Lambo, we will be looking for wen-bottom. 💔

I’ll keep it short and sweet, quickly identifying where analysts and traders see strong support levels ahead.

Real quick: Last Friday’s Litepaper discussed in detail the warnings about today’s selling pressure using time cycle magic 8 ball 1-800-MISS-CLEO voodoo chicken bone analysis. You should give a read through.

On the daily, between 30-day moving average and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement is the first support zone. On the weekly (not shown), it’s looking like the $0.55 value area for $ADA.

You know, this price action is pretty damn crazy. As I was typing this: I’ll make this simepl: the 30-day moving average, well, that’s exactly what happened with $XTZ

On the weekly chart, the 50% Fib retracement at $1.10 looks like an enticing spot for traders and analysts waiting for a deeper retracement.

This daily candlestick should come with a warning label, good Lord the swings are wild today.

Well, $SHIB launched right off the 50% Fib retracement, so that’s cool. Below that, we’re looking at the 61.8% Fib, and because the 30-week moving average will tick higher, the $0.00001600 to $0.00001650 looks strong.

$DOGE army, don’t kill me. There’s extended, overbought, off in la-la-land, and then there’s whatever DOGE’s chart looks like (in fact, $FLOKI, $BONK, and all the others fall into this, too).

If the 50% Fib doesn’t hold, then there’s an ugly space between the 61.8% at $0.1210 and the 30-day moving average at $0.1069.
