This is a brief thought but the current chart looks similar to the charts we saw in June 2016. This means we may rest around the 8.5k to 9k region before we see a breakout.
To play it safe, you can open a long position once bitcoin breaks the end of red line in the .
A risker trade would be to buy along the green line of the cloud.
If bitcoin breaks and closes below the green line of the cloud, exit this trade.
This is not financial advise. I am still learning.
