This should give us some indication as to where we go next. I expect an initial rejection at 9500 range, a retrace / buying opportunity at 8700 and then a final attemp at 9500. This will be an important point for BTC becasue a failure here would mean a probable symetrical triangle failure and a longer term bear market. Conversly a break means we go bulish.
I do tend to flip between the two but fundimenatlly use log myself with BTC. The reason i use log is because thats what its built for - evaluating large changes in the variable. Traditional traders tend to sty in linear, but either way, its good to know what each side is looking at.
Said this, the death cros is on the MA not the SMA or the EMA - each being important to other people. In the same way the linear chart caused the initial pull back, the death cross will probably trigger bots and others to short the market and it will dump in my opinion. It woudl be bad news if we reach the diagonal resistance at the same time. It would be awesome to know if it were a mathamatical cetrainty in the above case.
