On November 1, Crypto-ML issued a “BUY” signal for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) at $422.68. As of this writing, BCH is at $550+ on Coinbase Pro. That is over a 30% gain in just over 3 days.
While this may be a precursor to a larger run, it is worth noting that we are still in a bear market, as defined by Crypto-ML’s Market Index (-10.7 as of this writing):

Bearish conditions in 2018 have been characterized by numerous sharp selloffs that have quickly erased gains.
Additionally, the performance of BCH is likely related to news of an upcoming hard fork that is scheduled to take place on November 15. Hard forks can induce extreme volatility. Read more on the hard fork:
