The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole

Well, that was eventful from a price perspective. First BTC and later the ALTs pulsed to the upside.  Then a precipitous fall to $6,400 before rebounding above $7,000. A further correction in the works – in all probability – yes. What if BTC falls 40% – would the bull thesis be invalidated? No at all – volatility is back – profits will be taken and price swings are inevitable.

The bull is back -why so confident? Good news now moves price – XRP and XEM both saw exaggerated run ups on positive news. As I’m sure most of you have noticed bad news is also mostly ignored – Bitfinex, Tether, and Binance all offering recent examples of the market shrugging off negative developments.

However, do your pocketbook a favour – don’t chase. If you are new to crypto or just returning – take a few weeks (yes I said weeks) to situate yourself before launching into the market. If you weren’t a trader yesterday – you’re not one today.  If you are looking to trade or invest in this market – remember time and opportunity are on your side. Should this turn out to be the start of a bull run you have 12-24 months of opportunity ahead of you.

If you simply can’t wait – dollar cost averaging is the easiest and least stressful way to enter the market.
