Are bears getting as euphoric as bulls back in the 2017?
Maybe, it's hard to say but what we know that the majority of people are gone and lost their interest to cryptocurrencies.
Which means that they have given up and those who are left are expecting bitcoin to move below $3.000 price point and beyond. There are few things that reveals this information and one of them is a sentimental analysis.
Sentimental analysis is form of a data which is gathered from various of sources (for example from social media, some indicators that are built for these purposes and general atmosphere among the traders/investors) to create an analysis and adjust trades according to it.

It's very common to see extreme emotional behavior at the very top or bottom of the markets. People are either very pessimistic or optimistic and this gives a chance to be a contrarian. It's very rare to see the price move along with consensus when the sentiments are extreme.

Bitcoin is showing a fractal that's often to used to study the current price movement. Basically it means that there are a lot of similarities with what we have already seen in the past and can be compared to the current price movement as it looks a like. Often formations, trading behaviors and trading pattern tends to repeat that we have seen in the past.

However, there's something to keep in mind that the price movement will never be exactly the same when compared to the past and should treated as a study to give possible hints for the current price movement. Outcome often differs and that's why it's important to be careful here.

Comment: If this fractal is going to follow the same path than back in the 2017 & 2018I it should be reach $4.2k quite easily. But it's good to remember that prices haven't moved that much per day as they did back in the bull market so we can assume from this that it's better to lower expectations and so on targets as well.

Daily candle closing above of 0.618 fibonacci level would be a strong indication that the market is trying to reverse.

Interesting and I agree that it will break as anticipated. But price action is much more compressed (already evident by the difference in the length of the candles between the two date ranges. That means a lot more resistance to work through. Bear pressure has already shortchanged the bullish move up from 3100. It's very clear who won that fight. Now bulls are in a fight to prevent another move down and it's hard to tell if there is any interest given the falling volume. I think bears will be waiting at several nearby price levels and will hold this push up to around the 3650-3725 range before bear pressure pushes it back down. If bulls can hold this area, there may be hope for further bullish moves. But I do hope you are correct looking for 4200. I'll be on the ride.
