In the hours since, the chart has given an indication of where the market is set to go. The trades I setup yesterday were for buys - today is another day to take a buy position if you are in cash. Buying while the market is still bear is usually rewarded quite well.
It looks like an is forming - you can see the left shoulder and the head highlighted in the chart. This means we should "move sideways" at this level before we start tracing the right half of the pattern and return to $7200.
So whats the play?
BTC is volatile which is why most of us like trading it. Unlike stock trading there are no rules - there is no regulatory body to report to. This has created a situation where large stakeholders (whales) seem to manipulate the market in tandem (collusion). The future of BTC will involve the institutions overtaking the whales - which will probably profit us all. In today's market we are still very much affected by whale trades - in this instance they are more likely to drive up the price (before they try to drive it back down again). The challenge is to not get caught in the "bear trap". The play right now is buy at $6450 USD and hold to $7200 USD which will likely take until Friday to complete. A whale could change the time frame very quickly - we could very well shoot past 7200 in a few hours. There is also the possibility of weekend traders triggering some big buys and boosting us up even higher. Trading BTC is about , momentum and psychology. Is a 2k BTC in anyone's best interest (besides mine)? The chart says we are going up - the only question is - do we take the whale express or painstakingly carve out the right side of the inverse H&S? If anyone is questioning if this is the apocalypse - i'd be glad to buy your BTC from you at a discount!

No fears even if the price continues to fall. HODL. Wait and be patient. Don't despair.
Enjoy yourself for some weeks or months ...Stop to see the prices every 5minutes.
One day...(who cares when - It will be sooner than later) you will sell it for 20K or 25k ...or more.
Thats what Im doing now.
