My most recent Bitcoin Bubble Comparison led to the following predictions: 1 day - 14 days = < $5,750 | bottom prediction: $2,860 by 10/30
Previous analysis / position: “...that is why I am waiting for a breakthrough of the trendline , a higher high on the weekly and a close above the daily cloud before I start looking for longs. Until then I will continue to look for shorting opportunities.” / Sidelines

Summary: I got chopped out on another short position yesterday. This has been my worst losing streak in six months and that caused me to take a step back and re evaluate. Instead of being cold and calculated I have been battling feelings of FOMO.

Fear of missing out does not only happen to the upside, it can be just as tangible when looking to the downside. The longer we stay inside this triangle the more violent the subsequent move is expected to be. This knowledge has led me to feel on edge/anxious when not in a position.

If it breaks down and I am not at my computer, or prepared with a stop entry, then the price could fall 40% before I get entered. That would be extremely frustrating, especially after taking a number of losses trying to position myself early. Fear of the market leaving me behind is the primary reason I have made suboptimal entries over the past couple weeks.

Nobody is perfect and this market is about as frustrated as they get. Therefore I will not be giving myself a hard time about those mistakes, instead I will be learning and moving forward.

I have labeled $6,400 - $6,700 a no trade zone. I will not make another entry as long as Bitcoin remains stuck in that range. If that means that I miss out on the eventual move then that is okay because there will be plenty more opportunities around the corner.
