However, keep in mind:
- BTC is currently at the critical resistance, ie. the February high.
- The since March 2020 has 'probably' become flatter. The reason I am saying probably is because there are yet two touches on the upper to confirm the channel.
- There is divergence on the .
What does the above imply?
This means that buying at the current price level (at resistance) is not interesting in terms of risk reward (if you have not bought previously). To become a consistently profitable trader, you only want to enter high probability and set up. Over-trading and chasing the price will not last you very long in trading.
Before entering a trade, you need to ask yourself - where are you going to set your SL & TP? If you chase the price, you might get lucky once, twice, or even 50 times+ but that one black swan event similar to the one on the 12th March WILL blow up your account.
Although our recent buy on BTC at $9,000 did not get triggered, some of you may have entered a few alts with me. The worst that could happen to us now is that we get stopped out with little or no losses as we have moved SL to break-even on some of those positions.
In terms of my long term positions on BTC ?
I will close all of my $7,700 positions if price reaches $11,400, leaving the $7,000 positions. (Check below for my long term investment BTC portfolio)
