Price analysis 11/22: BTC, ETH, BNB, SOL, ADA, XRP, DOT, AVAX, DOGE, SHIB


Bitcoin (BTC) continues to be stuck below $ 60,000, indicating higher levels are attracting sales from traders.

The S&P 500 hit a new all-time high today following reports that US President Joe Biden has reappointed Jerome Powell for a second term as Federal Reserve Chairman. This news also propelled the US Dollar Currency Index (DXY) to its highest level since July 2020.

Usually, large DXY gains are inversely correlated with Bitcoin and the same can be seen in November of this year as well. While the DXY is up around 2.3% in November, Bitcoin is down around 5.5% in the same time frame.
