- Hong-Kong Based Exchange OKEx Plans to Move to Malta.OKEx, one of the largest exchanges in the world, has announced plans to move to the European island, Malta. This announcement came quickly after a similar announcement made by Binance, one of OKEx’s main competitors. In an attempt to gain an understanding of the political climate around cryptocurrencies in Malta, OKEx’s executives met with the Maltese government. While many EU countries are taking a standoff-ish, if not downright hostile, approach to cryptocurrency, Malta – which aims to become a ‘global pioneer’ for cryptocurrency – has proven to be extremely welcoming to crypto and blockchain businesses. Currently, OKEx only offers crypto to crypto trading along with a market. OKEx is currently based in Hong Kong, which has probably made it difficult for the exchange to obtain the required licenses to allow for a fiat gateway to be opened in collaboration with banking systems. However, some suspect that with the move to Malta, that the exchange will open fiat to crypto trading, which will become an essential part of any successful exchange in the near future.

Technical indicators have a subjective nature, especially regarding highly volatile bitcoin :)
I see your point about Stochastic RSI; it is in an oversold state. But I suppose that a lot of turnarounds starts from the deviations with technical indicators.
Moreover, I agree with you that BTC will not takeoff write-away.
The most probable scenario, from my point of view, is lateral movement under 8500.0.
