Ethereum Price Flash-Crashed 63% To $700 On Kraken Exchange
The price of ETH recently flash-crashed to a low of $700 on the Kraken crypto exchange. While most cryptocurrencies also saw serious declines, Ether's price on Kraken’s exchange definitely appears to have gone through a roller coaster.
In a span of one hour, the price went down to $700 – a massive 63% decline from the daily top on the exchange. The volume on that hourly candle was also substantial – a total of 75,500 ETH (worth around $131.5) million changed hands.
The price did eventually recover and traded at somewhat normal levels. ETH continued to be down quite a bit but nowhere near the bottom charted on Kraken’s spot exchange. A flash crash happens when the price of an asset goes up and down a large magnitude in a short span of time.
These events see the liquidations of many traders who’ve bet on the price going in the opposite direction, provided they use a derivatives platform. However, they can also benefit traders who have placed low buying orders as the price is likely to have them filled on the way down, charting massive gains as it recovers.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ethereum price is likely going to drop down to the $1,600 support line before it manages to regain momentum and jump up.
