The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 35


Bitcoin has been on a tear in the past week – ripping up then right back down again -volatility is certainly back! The bull trend seems confirmed though sharp/steep corrections are in order. The ALTS have been savaged but their day in the sun will come in due course. Beware leverage in such market conditions!

Much of this week’s recap focuses on examining BTC’s recent price action. There’s certainly a lot to discuss.

A sit up straight week for crypto -gripping / exhilarating and of course, just a little bit stressful (especially if you are holding ALTS). Until next time. As always, looking forward to your comments and suggestions.
