According to current figures from monitoring resource CoinGlass, a bid wall of around $35 million on Binance was taken into the daily close, with the bulk of ask liquidity now sitting between $67,000 and $67,500.

“A 1-Month view of the order book illustrates how dynamic changes in liquidity placement impact overall price action,” trading resource Material Indicators wrote in part of a post on X (formerly Twitter).
