The fortitude of Bitcoin (BTC) holders continues to be tested on Nov. 17 as a number of attempts to push the price to $59,000 and below grow. This level has been well defended by bulls but analysts are still watching for the $63,000 level to be reclaimed as support before saying the “dip” has ended.
