Before the fall of Bitcoin from $ 6,200 to a low of $ 5,600, DonAlt, a respected cryptocurrency trader and technical analyst, said that BTC looks quite weak:
"BTC looks pretty weak. This is probably the first time when I have not bought it for $ 6,200 for quite a long time. I just don't trust him. It is unlikely to stay forever after such (...) If it breaks, alternative cryptocurrencies will suffer the most." – DonAlt.
During the first two quarters of 2018, tokens and small market assets in the digital market recorded 40 to 80 percent of the losses from the BTC price reduction.
On November 15, more than 20% of altcoins suffered unprecedented losses. Also, it was exactly on November 15 that the cryptocurrency market suffered a record annual loss of approximately 95 to 98 percent: compared with previous years.
Some traders expect the BTC to revise the resistance level at $ 6,000, since this system has been working as support for "digital gold" for more than four months.
"About $ 6,000 would be a very active level. Many expect that the price will still go to this mark. If this does not happen: make sure you have a plan to overcome the panic. This is what I consider in terms of D1 trading. Must use LTF." – CNN.

At the time of November 15 14:00 Bitcoin rate is 5489 USD.
