Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView tracked a swift retreat for BTC price action, which fell over $1,000 in a single hourly candle.

The largest cryptocurrency found support at the $35,000 mark, forming a springboard to recover to around $35,600 at publication.

The volatility came hours after what at first looked like a positive news event for Bitcoin and crypto, with United States inflation slowing beyond expectations.

At the same time, however, analysts noted that beyond smaller retail investors, there was little appetite for buying BTC at prior levels around 18-month highs.

On November 3, Bitcoin whales started booking profits as the $BTC price rose from $35,000 to nearly $38,000, one such take from popular social media commentator Ali noted. More than 15 wallets with over 1,000 BTC sold or redistributed their holdings.

A subsequent post showed bid support moving closer to spot price from $33,000 to $34,500 while whales sold off.

Data from on-chain monitoring resource CoinGlass showed the highest volume of daily long BTC liquidations in several months.

These totaled $120 million for Nov. 14, roughly equal to the short BTC liquidations, which accompanied Bitcoins spike to $38,000 last week.
