From the all time high, BTC has formed nothing but lower highs on the chart. Not a single higher high is present (counting only major peaks) which is a powerful testament to the overwhelming bearishness that exists. Technically, it is very beaten. Fundamentally, mass adoption is practically nonexistent, which isn't a surprise since cryptos continue to be plagued by fraud, uncertainty, extreme speculation, institutional rejection, user unfriendliness, and a myriad of other complications. For those reasons, I believe that the forward path for crypto is a major continuation to the downside.
Many of you know that I've been calling for $3,000 BTC for several months now. However, this chart is starting to make me think we could go much lower than that. If you want to be purely technical about it, the height of the (vertical dashed line) subtracted from a potential breakdown area, casts a forard projection to zero dollars. You can see it with your own eyes. It is what it is. The path to worthlessness (if that's where we're going) won't necessarily be immediate. So, please be patient.
Looking at the last two lower highs, you can see that they were both failed attempts to rally above the 200 day moving average (in purple.) Now, we've broken back down even below the 50 (in orange.) So, those averages (particularly the 200) are producing some major overhead resistance.
However, there is a small glimmer of hope for the bulls that we must acknowledge. You can see that the apex of the triangle is intersecting the lowest rising (in black.) So, there is a small possibility that BTC could find support there, but I personally don't see that happening. I believe that the triangle is the markets way of building up energy to breakdown through that rising . Additionally, the appears to be printing a huge . However, I wouldn't put too much faith in that as an indicator. It isn't unusual for momentum to fall during the progression of triangles. In fact, that's pretty normal. What we (bears) want to see, is momentum expansion on the breakdown, coupled with a sharp spike in sell . Until then, BTC is likely to chop around inside of this triangle, possibly into November, before we actually see it break in one direction or the other. Until then, I will remain a seller of rallies in the market.

Tether did not get back to normal value until October 27th, if you adjust for the amount tether was down each day then the wedge never gets broken until October 27th when tether finally reached its correct price again, although it did not get there until mid day so the 27th can be adjusted as well and stay in the wedge.
The 28th and 29th it is literally on the line and then Btc dropped to $6200 early Monday just when it needed to in order to stay in the wedge. So although I think @longmoney was being sarcastic, he was correct, it is in play for now.
