Crypto Brief Nov.16: Bitcoin Price Risks Dumping to $ 7.300 Plus Ripple, DAI, Chainlink, Nervos, Tron, Bittrex, Unknown Fund, Cubobit, Gemini, Amero-Isatek, Blockchain News
From prediction that Bitcoin price may dump down to $ 7.300 to Huobi Global will list Nervos on its trading platform. These are some outstanding news in the world of crypto today.
A recent prediction by veteran trader, Elixium, warns that Bitcoin can face another price collapse. This time, the target price is $ 7,300 if the bulls fail to push prices higher from the current levels.
Bitcoin’s performance in the first half of 2019 has brought a lot of optimism to investors after the cryptocurrency winter in late 2018. Bitcoin price finally peaked in July at $ 13,800, which corresponds to an increase of $ 10,000 from the beginning of the year.
However, after peaking in July, the price of Bitcoin mainly continued to make lower highs. The price saw a decline of $ 1,000, sometimes more, sometimes less, but could not be denied the performance of the coin over the past five months.
The current Bitcoin market is quite gloomy, especially when the coin is currently below 200 EMA & SMA. There is an absolute consistency when prices fall from its peak, though occasionally spike. This suggests that in the long-term trend, bears still retain control of the market.
Bitcoin is currently below the 200 EMA & SMA.
If it closes the daily like this then there’s a huge risk that it will dump down to $7,300.

Traders can earn big profits when investing in Bitcoin
An analyst at the crypto data firm Glassnode says that a chart of Bitcoin’s average spent output lifespan (ASOL) shows Bitcoin that has been dormant for as long as 250 days is now being moved. He suggested that crypto traders are currently taking profits at a higher rate than at any other point in 2019.
According to Rafael Schultze-Kraft, the spike is a sign that traders may be moving their BTC to exchanges in order to cash out.
There is a huge spike in the Average Spent Output Lifespan (ASOL) for #Bitcoin today.
It’s the highest we’ve seen this year. On the hourly chart, bitcoins as old as 250 days are being moved. This corresponds to mid March when the price was at ~$4,000. Profit taking here? pic.twitter.com/PYU4ToNUzV

Daily analyst Josh Rager says BTC will need to stay above $8.325 in order to prevent a larger bearish trend.
Bounce off of $8,370s, this area acted as resistance for during the previous range (outside the fake-out pump in early Oct)
This area needs to hold, a weekly close below $8,235, imo, would lead to more downside
Currently, every time frame under monthly looks ugly pic.twitter.com/WPri5cDzLM
