At BeInCrypto, we offer regular price analyses and predictions of the most popular and relevant cryptoassets. We have so far restricted analysis of Bitcoin SV (BSV) because of its contentiousness and other factors. However, a Twitter feud between Craig Wright and @hodlonaut may lead to a delisting on Binance. Once again, Bitcoin SV is relevant, so we have decided to perform a technical analysis of the coin below or learn more about the possible delisting here: Bitcoin SV may be delisted from Binance.

On Feb 26, 2019, the price of Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV) reached a high of $77.03. A gradual decrease ensued.

Bitcoin SV reached a high of $97.85 on Apr 3. This high followed a market-wide spike that began the day prior. Price has steadily fallen since.

Bitcoin SV (BSV) Prices: Feb 25 – Apr 12

Despite these losses, Bitcoin SV is still trading above the lows faced in March. However, if Bitcoin SV is delisted form Binance, we may expect rapid and significant prices drops.

Nonetheless, this has not yet happened, so we will analyze Bitcoin SV like any other cryptocurrency. This means we are taking a look at the numbers and indicators outside of qualitative factors.

Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV): Trends and Highlights For April 12, 2019

  • BSV/USD made a high of $97.85 on Apr 3.
  • It has been decreasing since.
  • The price of Bitcoin SV is trading inside a descending wedge.
  • There is bullish divergence developing in the RSI.
  • There is resistance near $78.

Descending Wedge

The price of BSV is analyzed on Bitfinex at six-hour intervals from Feb 25 to Apr 12 in order to determine its current trading pattern. We chose the Bitfinex exchange because it lists Bitcoin SV as BSV. Binance, on the other hand, lists Bitcoin SV as BCHSV (or Bitcoin Cash SV—its former name). Furthermore, BCHSV or BSV may be delisted from Binance—which could create impediments in our analysis.

On Feb 26, Bitcoin SV reached a high of $77.03. A sharp decrease was followed by a gradual increase. Price made another lower high.

Tracing these highs gives us a descending resistance line.

The price broke out above this line on Apr 3. Since that time, the resistance line has acted as a support line. On Apr 12, the line was validated for a second time.

On Apr 3, the price made a high of $97.85. A sharp decrease in price ensued. The price has made several lower highs. Tracing these highs gives us a descending resistance line.

The support and resistance lines combine to create a descending wedge for the period Apr 2-12:

It is likely that the price will continue trading inside the confines of this wedge until a decisive move occurs. It is possible that the price could fall below the support line in the near future for four reasons:

  1. The former resistance line has only been validated as a support line twice—diminishing its overall validity.
  2. Bitcoin SV only rose above the support line during a market-wide spike initiated by Bitcoin (BTC).
  3. Currently, Bitcoin SV is trading near the support line after a significant drop.
  4. There remains the possibility of delisting on Binance. The threat alone could cause catastrophic price drops.

In order to predict whether or not a breakdown is likely, however, requires a look at some technical indicators.

Technical Indicators

The price of BSV on Bitfinex is analyzed at one-hour intervals from Apr 7 to Apr 12 alongside the RSI in order to offer a better visualization of the divergence.
The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.

RSI is shown beloew the current trading pattern in the chart below:

On Apr 9, the price made a low of $77.80. On Apr 11, it made another low of $68.80.

Similarly, the RSI made the first low on Apr 11. However, it has continued to generate higher values since.

This is known as bullish divergence and often precedes price increases.

Using this indicator, it is likely that the price will increase towards the resistance line of the wedge.

However, the divergence is only visible in short-term time frames. Furthermore, there are many factors which suggest price increases may not occur at all or that they may be very short-lived. A breakout does not currently appear likely.

Future Movement

To determine possible future movements based on price increases as indicated by the RSI, resistance areas are incorporated into the analysis.
Resistance areas are created when the price visits the same level several times. They can act as reversal areas in case a breakout occurs.
One resistance area for Bitcoin SV is shown in the chart below:

The closest resistance area is found near $78. According to our analysis, it is possible that the price will reach this area.

Summary of Analysis

Based on this analysis, the price of Bitcoin SV is likely to increase and reach the resistance area we have outlined above. However, this is based on quantiative considerations alone.

If BCHSV is delisted from Binance, there could be drastic deviations from the predictions made above. The price may plummet as a result of qualitiatve conditions that cannot be accurately represented by statistical data alone.
