In my own defense I'll say that I'm more a swing trader/investor (months to years) type of player rather than a short term one (anywhere from minutes to hours/few days max). Or at least I'm focusing more on that at the moment.
My decision to take a 'few' thousands of LEO tokens from the markets in the past couple of weeks has been proven to be a 'solid' decision until now.
''roar!'' I mean... source

How much do you think it takes to push up the price of LEO? Let me to reminder some facts regarding the token supply:
- ~4,4M total tokens; ~65K mcap at current price (0,016$/LEO).
- From that amount, the ~8,45% is burned (370K LEO tokens).
- From the remaining ~90% the ~87,7% of all the available tokens are staked.
- It means that less than ~500K LEO tokens are available at the open market.
500K LEO at the lowest ask price (0,068 HIVE/LEO) equals to ~34.000 HIVE or ~9200$.
You heard it right. In a 'ideal' world, the sell side (assuming no unstakes and/or inflation) are 'only' capable to absorb 34K HIVE at maximum if we take in consideration current prices.
Spoiler: we don't live in an ideal world
And that means that the real supply available of LEO is by far MUCH less than 500K.
And for that kind of reason this happens:
One single buyer (or a few) like me last week and the 'sell side' languishes...
We can even consider this a 'sell wall'? Only ~3400 HIVE (or less than ~1000$) in a single market buy order can catapult the price up to 0,5 HIVE/LEO.
Obviously this won't happen as I describe, buyers will try to grab as much LEO as possible at lower prices before being forced to move the price up.
The problem comes when a few of this buyers accumulate in the buy side. I call this: 'Shock supply'
When the available supply is extremely low and very violent moves can happen in a blink of a eye. It's similar to a 'financial stampede'.
Someone is accumulating...
Thanks for reading & take care, these markets are extremely iliquid.
Remember that I'm sharing some LEO love if you comment though Leofinance
