Longs worth 150 million liquidated on BitMEX: Another move of market manipulation?

Bitcoin price has been trying hard to reach to the key resistance level of $10,500, but all the efforts by the bulls failed yesterday as the price came crashing down towards the support levels of $9,700. This drop was not handled well by BitMEX.

As soon as the price touched the below $10,000 mark, this sudden drop triggered a series of longs liquidation on BitMEX which resulted in the liquidation of $150 million. A Twitter bot for BitMEX, REKT announced about the BitMEX liquidation and how some traders even lost around $100,000 after the price move.

This liquidation came right after BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes said that Bitcoin would rally towards $20,000 soon. He made the prediction after the U.S. Federal Reserve pumped in $53 billion as extra cash.

Bitcoin is facing a downward correction this week as the price continues to decline. There can be certain reasons involved in the downfall of the Bitcoin price. Here are the 5 reasons why the Bitcoin price might crash soon.
