So I was just watching the exchange section at polo and I was happened to be on the AMP exchange page, I noticed something quite incredible and would be interested in what you guys think about it.
So amp was being sold at about 0.00007756 and was at like 10%+(green) and then suddenly there came a sell order of about 60k+ amps with price only 0.00007150
Now why would someone actually sell at such a low price when the price for the moment is quite high?
It looked quite strange to me, what do you guys think?

If he was one of the early investors, or a dev of the coin, he might knows more then you and decided to dump all of his coins, and take his profits home. Due to the fact that if you sell them at  0.00007756, you won't be able to sell them all at once. That could be the reason.

However 60k wouldn't be much in that case.

Because he wanted to fill orders down to 0.00007150, this happens when there's not enough liquidity if you have a big sell to make.

not everyone is a trader and having a large amount of money (~4.65BTC) doesn't make them good at it.
it may have been someone who have mined that much, a developer, a bagholder, or someone who bought low and was scared so got out.
there is also the possibility of a bot going crazy on its owner Smiley

also remember that always taking 10% profit is better than watching the coin stay there and suddenly go down to -30% and you miss your opportunity. and a 10% profit on 4.65BTC means 0.46BTC nearly 500 dollar in half a day.

Simple answer is to create sell wall and create panic on the market. So that these whales can buy back cheap coins. When they will get few cheap coins below their sell orders, they will remove those walls so that price can naturally get pumped over their sell price so they can sell again to make good profit.  Wink

That is the start of the called triggering a trend so that the price movement will not always goes into same direction. Building a price wall.

That is always present to an alt especially if it's offered on an ICO. Early investors will get profit out of it while at the same time will trigger a panic selling since the quantity stated is enough to shake the volumes much. What to do? Ride the wave and try not to get lost.

To press the market and with an assumption if that makes a short candle. Actually, most of the whales are doing it.

It' just a usual thing in trading, You'll see more whales try to make panic to the market. I mean the short dip is his chance to gain more profit.

Or that person is trying to sell all of his coins.

Well for one thing if the price was going significantly down then they might want to sell to several different buyers all the way down to that price.  They could also be starting a downtrend to push the price down so that they can buy later.

Sometimes people get lazy. The seller could have sold at the higher price and if there weren't enough buy orders to cover the sell at that price enter a new one at a lower price. I don't know what the trading rules are on Poloniex but I once traded stocks with Havelock Investments where the price at which you entered the order was the price you got as soon as someone entered a matching order. If this sounded stupid I apologize. This is only my second post on this forum.

OP, you should always keep in mind that most of the altcoin traders are amateurs and self thought traders. They make the mistakes of amateurs always make like the one you witnessed. He made a market order without any regard on the liquidity of the market.

That make sense, so it is a manipulation by the "whales" as people are calling them.
I think the appropriate option would be just to keep watching and do nothing about it? Because that they would not want, right?


there is also the possibility of a bot going crazy on its owner Smiley

That must be one angry owner right now if he sees, but bot most probably earned him profit in any case.

it is mostly someone day-trading. which means they buy in the dips and sell after a rise. in that case you see dumps like that happen. and when the market is small with small orders selling one batch will fill multiple orders and price goes down 2-3 steps.

seeing the past 7 days of AMP charts the trades go like this:
you buy at 6800-6900 sat and sell on 7500-7800 (13-14% profit)
then buy back at 7100 sat and sell again at 7800-8100 (13-14% profit again)
...
and so on.

Of course it is. Manipulation and pumping and dumping have been happening since the creation of the idea of trading markets. Do you really believe that something like the Tulip Mania was all owed to the law of supply and demand? Of course not, there were a lot of misinformation, hype and of course the pump of the price that manipulated the people to join in and buy it up.

technically manipulation is also changing the supply and demand.
for example it can be by cutting the supply and the sell pressure (specially in altcoin market where the coins/supply is in the hands of a few) and place some buy walls in small markets and push the buy orders higher and higher.
or it can be by "spreading some fake news" so that the demand increases when people rush to buy that thing in order not to miss out. like what ethereum and dash did with their claims to replace bitcoin.

In my opinion that the signal that coin will dump because whales set a wall on it to get more amp.
That's the strategy of some traders to gain more profit.

i think, the investor just want to buy again in the lower prices, that's why they dump the coin. Firts they buy @low price then sell all her coins @high price... To dump the coin and also to buy @low price.... Don't worry OP this is always happening "Dump and Pump"

Not only him the one who sells at 0.00007150 BTC, there are many greedy people in trading history. The don't want to increase the price of the coin, this thing I have faced many times when the price of the coin is raising many people to start to keep at the low price. We don't have any right to ask because those coins belong to themselves only.

Not only him the one who sells at 0.00007150 BTC, there are many greedy people in trading history. The don't want to increase the price of the coin, this thing I have faced many times when the price of the coin is raising many people to start to keep at the low price. We don't have any right to ask because those coins belong to themselves only.
I agree with you . can all run very quickly and so many transactions.
we can never pay attention to the movement of the digits in the world of trading.

Sometimes people get lazy. The seller could have sold at the higher price and if there weren't enough buy orders to cover the sell at that price enter a new one at a lower price. I don't know what the trading rules are on Poloniex but I once traded stocks with Havelock Investments where the price at which you entered the order was the price you got as soon as someone entered a matching order. If this sounded stupid I apologize. This is only my second post on this forum

I've seen something like that on some amateur exchanges (let's call them wannabe exchanges)

Obviously the order should be filled at the best price all down the orderbook. So if you put a Sell order at a price below the price of some Buy orders, your order should get first filled at the highest prices available, and if there is a remaining amount it will be placed at the price that you set. I traded at Poloniex and orders are filled there as they should be, so if someone placed a Sell order at a price below the highest bids, he might just have calculated the price at which his order will be filled completely. In fact, that's totally rational since otherwise the trader in question might not get his order filled completely because buyers would most certainly remove their Buy orders when they saw a huge Sell order hovering just above their bids
