Sell wall

By bitcoin_delight | Updated on May 24, 2020
Sell walls are a relatively new phenomenon in public order book exchanges with the rise of cryptocurrency trading. They are always manipulative in nature, designed to scare traders and skew price perception by placing anomolously large sell order(s) at a single price point. This will be reflected in the order book as a seeming "wall".
