The bitcoin market likes to test boundaries. Look at any chart assessing what bitcoin is doing and you’ll see red lines and blue lines and all manner of oddities. Why you may ask? If you zoom out and look from a much wider angle, it’s a way of trying to understand which boundary is being tested next.
There’s almost infinite complexity in these kinds of young technology markets, sentiment, manipulation, adoption, accumulation all intertwine. Currently the market is testing the lows, not because of China (the China news has been a thing since 2011 and it never really has any major sway on the market) but because we tested the highs, it’s as simple as that. We essentially went from $5,000 dollars to $13,500 in 3 months and now, like the swing of a pendulum, the market wants to know where the bottom is again. In my opinion we are in the early stages of a bull market, you’ll see that the bottom this time around is much higher than $5,000. We will find higher lows all the way back to all-time highs.
Let’s understand that we will regularly oscillate up and down like this and every time a major move happens perhaps it’s folly to seek for and ascribe a reason from outside the market. In such a market there is really only one strategy, buy when the market is testing a low, sell when the market is testing a high and hodl in between.
