On the chart, you can see that BTC was in a big (in black,) and it actually had a weak breakout to the upside. We can see that price has since rolled over, and now it looks like it could fall to the top of the flag to test it for support. Now, if we see a test of the top of the , which holds as support, that would actually be a sign — one that could lead to a completion of the right shoulder.
However if the top of the is lost, we would then be looking at a failed breakout, which is not the kind of follow-through strength you want to see in the right shoulder of a potential inverted pattern. Furthermore, if we start to break down below the December 27th low of 3567, that would dramatically reduce the likelihood of this being an inverted pattern, and it would increase the likelihood that we have actually just printed a lower high in the downtrend. Technically, the right shoulder of an inverted pattern could go as low as the head, but it's best to be defensive, since we are still in a bear market downtrend. If you look at the chart, it is nothing but lower highs and lower lows. So, there is no doubt that the bear market downtrend persists.
Just to clear up any questions, I am definitely still long term on the crypto space, even if we do see a failure of the inverted pattern. As I've said on numerous occasions, I do not believe that the bear market is over. What does that mean? Well, to me it means that even if we rally substantially off of these levels (say up to the low 5000s) I still believe that price is likely to then head back to the downside, as we enter a long sideways consolidation period in the market. At some point we are likely to start grinding mostly sideways, and that could persist for a couple of years. That's the most likely way that we will see the final stages of this bear market. With that said, I also believe that crypto will have another powerful bull market after that consolidation period. For now, we have to continue to monitor this whipsaw action in Bitcoin , to see what direction it will finally break to. So, keep an eye on the top of the , the neckline (in blue,) the 50 (in orange,) and the December 27th low of 3567 on the downside.

I’m personally done chasing highs. I’ve moved my position back to fiat (fortunately at a profit) and I’m setting buys at $1500 and below. In my opinion, those will be my all in levels.
