On Friday (8th Sept), the price quote was on par with Coinbase live pricing when bitcoin was trading around 4600-4680. The bid and ask spread was between 10 and 20.

 

Today, Sunday (10th Sept), current bitcoin is trading at 4230 at coinbase live price, but at IG platform it is price at 100 LESS, at 4130 and bid and ask spread at 30!

 

Why such big difference in the space of 2 days? Can James ftom IG please assist to clarify? Thanks.

Now is 10pm Sun (10th Sept).

Coinbase bitcoin live price is US$4168.

IG live price is 4138 (bid offer at 4128 / 4148).

This difference has close in from 100 to 30 and the spread is now mostly at 20.

 

Could this be these due to weekend lower liquidity?

 

Hope by Monday, the 2 platforms will be on par again.

Hi  - you may find the following link useful, specifically the 'how we price our markets' section: Crypto Mega Thread. Effectively we use a number of the most liquid exchanges to price our markets, pulling the best possible prices to give you the tightest spread possible on a leveraged deal. 

 

Coinbase is a single exchange and there will always be a large disparity between prices due to the illiquid nature of the markets.

    • This is like the Super Bowl for crypto folks, right?  My expectations are cautiously optimistic; we've seen history repeat itself with previous halving events leading to price surges, so let's hope the pattern holds true this time.

DETAILS: We seem to have a three wave move so far in wave (4), with a sideways wave B which because of its characteristics it gives us additional confidence we could be in a corrective structure.       Here's the latest on Salesforce Inc. (CRM) from our Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge, examining both the daily and 4-hour chart.   * CRM Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* Salesforce is currently exhibiting behavior typical of a counter trend phase with a corrective mode and flat structure, positioned in Intermediate wave (4). The direction is indicating a potential bottom in wave (4). We've observed a reaction off the key level, TL3 at $300, which we have identified as wave (3) of Primary 1. Following a prolonged correction in wave IV, which now appears complete, the outlook suggests a potential continuation higher. * CRM Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* The 4-hour chart further supports the daily findings but focuses on the specifics of the ongoing correction in Wave C of (4). This phase is also characterized as counter trend, corrective, and flat. The chart shows a three-wave structure for wave (4), with a sideways wave B. The nature of wave B provides additional confidence that we are indeed in a corrective structure, setting up expectations for a bottom in wave C.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • Rising geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and expectations of higher US interest rates for longer have dampened risk appetite in financial markets. This led to a sell-off in Asian stocks, a strengthening US dollar, and further weakness in the Japanese yen to levels not seen since the mid-1990s against the dollar. European markets are expected to open sharply lower, with a focus on UK labour and wage data for clues on when the Bank of England may start cutting rates. Markets see August as most likely for BoE rate cuts to begin. The Federal Reserve is seen as unlikely to rush rate cuts after strong US retail sales data. Market pricing now sees less than two Fed rate cuts in 2024 instead of the six expected earlier. Safe-haven flows are boosting demand for the US dollar and gold amid Middle East tensions. China's GDP beat estimates but weak March data raised concerns about its economic recovery. UK employment data showed a rise in the unemployment rate for February, to 4.2%, while wage growth remained steady at 5.6%.
