Bitcoin price extended declines and traded to new lows below $4,550 against the US Dollar . BTC/USD is currently under pressure below $5,000 and the decrease in Bitcoin Hash Rate could ignite more losses. The chart indicates that the price dropped heavily below the $5,060 and $4,860 support levels. It even declined below the $4,550 support and traded to a new multi-month low around the $4,400 level. The has reached the 10 level, suggesting that the price is facing a solid selling interest below $4,860. However, there are chances of a short-term bounce from the recent low of $4,407. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $5,751 high to $4,407 low. Moreover, there is a major in place with resistance at $4,700 on the same chart to act as a barrier for buyers. (Source: https://coingape.com/bitcoin-price-analy...)
According to the recent news, two separate crypto exchanges, Huobi and Kraken, have independently decided to list Bitcoin coins as Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on their exchanges. In the same announcement Kraken also warned that, despite listing Bitcoin SV as well (by the ticker BSV ), the exchange ultimately regards it as a high-risk investment as it does not meet usual listing requirements (Source: https://ethereumworldnews.com/kraken-and...). Coin.dance platform has also formally announced that Bitcoin has won the “has war” (Source: https://cash.coin.dance/).

The world’s second-largest cryptocurrency exchange OKEx hit back at accusations it “manipulated markets” by adjusting Bitcoin Cash (BCH) settlements in a fresh statement Nov. 20 sent to Cointelegraph. The exchange, which opted to deliver BCH early due to the coin’s contentious hard fork Nov. 15, subsequently saw a barrage of negative publicity over the decision, pundits complaining it had overstepped its remit in freely deciding when and how contracts would be settled. In particular, a Medium user AMBER AI accused OKEx of “outright market manipulation and one of the more serious acts of fraud in the history of limit order book trading in the cryptocurrency markets”. Published Nov. 19, the post provides a lengthy analysis of the settlement and further alleges OKEx contradicted its own small print several times during the process. It is argued traders have lost $24 million due to the move. Responding, the OKEx exchange sent a circular to users in which it said the settlement change was “based on the consideration of market integrity and customer interests”. OKEx added it would consider legal action against AMBER AI for “interfering” in its operations. (Source: https://cointelegraph.com/news/okex-rebu...)
Due to the high on the market and high uncertainty surrounding most of the coins, the Osiris Team does not recommend to trade with short-term investment horizons. As mentioned previously, the Osiris team is currently holding Bitcoin ( BAB on Bitfinex, BCH on Huobi and Kraken) guided primarily by . The comparative performance of BAB is promising, BAB being the only coin among the top-20 staying in the green. As can be seen from the chart, BAB is also the only coin trading above its 4:30 UTC levels before the overall market dump.
Currently, Bitcoin can be undoubtedly called the winner of the “hash war”, controlling over 60% of the hash rate, being 46 blocks ahead and 54.3% ahead on proof of work (Source: https://cash.coin.dance/). The mining of Bitcoin has also become more diversified, including ViaBTC , AntPool and BTC .TOP pools. Recent block statistics (fees, sizes and outputs, source: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/bloc...) shows that at least these three pools are not “selfless”, mining solely for the promotion of the chain, but rather self-interested miners, implying that their activities are sustainable, which is crucial given overall concerns of loss generation over Bitcoin and Bitcoin SV mining.
Overall, the Osiris Team remains on Bitcoin . There is no firm selling target as upward coin movement is bounded not by technical or liquidity factors but rather by sentiment. As we believe negative sentiment over Bitcoin is to vanish (which indeed is slowly happening), we will sell when we see signals of long-term price stabilisation at higher levels (probably over 340-350 USD) and resume short-term trading. Despite the fact fundamentally justified price for Bitcoin is around 430 USD, given the overall sentiment around crypto and significant selling pressure around 360 USD, where most of the sell orders are concentrated and where historical highs have previously formed (see chart), these assessments (~430 selling target) now seem slightly optimistic.
