Crypto Analyst: Nothing Stopping Bitcoin After Potential $100 Million in Liquidations
Technical analyst and BLOCKTV reporter Joe Saz says he doubts Bitcoin’s surge is over.
According to Saz, BTC bulls are likely to keep charging after liquidating millions of dollars worth of short positions in the last 24 hours.
“I think that this can keep going. There’s nothing stopping it. I don’t want to go too far into the clouds here, but there might have even been $100 million plus dollars in liquidations overnight…
I saw a lot of $10 million in short liquidations. So what does that mean? It means a lot of people were betting that we were headed down and they got completely smashed in the face. So I don’t recommend to enter any short or long positions.
If you’re going to trade, be defensive, trade with small amounts if you’re shorting or longing. Or if you’re spot trading then at least whatever you’ll buy you’ll keep. You won’t get liquidated. So maybe you can be a little more risky there. I won’t be considering some more buys and let this run go until it’s completely out of steam.”

Meanwhile, Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire says he believes Bitcoin will surpass $10,000 in a matter of days.
