Bitcoin is having one of its volatile episodes again. In the past week, after failing to break the resistance of $10,000, it started a downside ride and plummeted to $8,675. Skew.com recorded a total liquidation of $18M for long contracts within just one hour on May 25.
In the short-term, analysts are holding bearish mood towards Bitcoin’s performance, as some major indicators all point to the bearish territory. Currently, there is an imbalance of long and short contracts in the market, with the longs taking about 71% of the total contracts. This shows that the liquidity of the Bitcoin market is rather high, which present opportunities to Bitcoin whales to buy in and further drive up the volatility of the market.
Bitcoin has already suffered two long squeezes lately, and many analysts believe the pressure for another long squeeze is building.
How to Take Advantage of the Volatility
High volatility is a constant of Bitcoin since its birth, and it is not going away in the foreseeable future. In fact, while high volatility can make traders lose a large sum of money within a few hours, it is also high volatility that help them multiply their investments in a short time. So how do we make the most of it and generate more BTC? The answer is very simple: leveraged trading.
In leveraged trading, every fluctuation is an opportunity to generate profit. It’s perfectly normal for traders to achieve 100% ROI or more.
Lets’s see how:
Step 1: the current price of BTC is $9,000. If you believe the price is going to drop, you can open a short position with 0.01 BTC. Now, 0.01 BTC may not seem much, but with 100x leverage, you can open a contract worth 1 BTC.
Step 2: When the price of BTC drops 500 points to $8,500, you close the position.
Profit: ($9000-$8500)*1 BTC/$8500=0.059 BTC.
