Whatever the whales do, they'll need a lot of funds to break through the $100 zone from $3580 to $3680. Massive resistance here from 1 month of trading and people holding longs for a while at a loss who just want to close at break even . If you zoom out, it looks a bit like a 1 month long descending triangle on the $3500/$3600 area.
These sudden pump and dumps is one of the biggest reasons why going above 15x leverage ~6.2% price change is not advised, just for safety. When we get massive liquidations it is usually people doing 25-30 or higher leverage and with the ranges in the pump and dump between 3-4% it seems to be prime spot to liquidate these kind of gambling traders.
