Current situation does not look too pretty for crypto investors. With all this manipulations going on it is not easy also for crypto traders. Whales are currently dominating the market and we can do nothing accept adopt to such reality.
Anyhow we are deep in the downtrend and things are likely to get even worse. For me most likely scenario is that we will exit this negative trend after formation of . This formation is and could be a good catalyst for trent reversal. Let us hope for the best!
How I fight this downtrend: stay in fiat, short the market, after BTC hits 9000 slow entry (steps) on alts market with fresh money
Yes, very likely. The volumes on the market are low. There is no fresh capital which by itself puts pressure on prices. And do not forget, on such low volumes pros can easily manipulate the market.
But you are right that 9600 is a good support which, by mine opinion, will be broken sooner not later ;).
