It's clear for me market has changed in 2018, low volumes, taxes, money changing hands, people leaving and Chart analysis changed too with traps everywhere, most people got confused with this change, you need some time to figure out how this change impacted the market and it's new operation mode.
I also saw some people talking about get out of the market for a while, and I agree this is the best time for a vacation while market build a new pattern.
I notice starting on 2018 and expiry date, market was a lot sideways, most rockets have a very short run, so something has changed but it was not clear how. And this motivates me to have a new view, of a low market !
I notice this pattern a lot on XRPBTC , going down very slowly recently with spikes going high for a short time and for the first time it makes sense and have feeling on BTCUSD and decide to gave it a shot on what looks like the final run.
The objective here is not to get it strictly perfect on every high and low and all timings but to give a very fast perpective of the scenario.
