Fair enough.. I am following you now by the way because I like to see how people with different opinions structure their thought.
There is a huge resistance and Your vertical upside scenario is ballsy but possible.
On another note
Nothing is impossible and the market does not care what we think...
My perception is it easier to go back from where we come than break a perceived resistance that seem to retain the market.
For me: people who use definitive statements lose credibility.
Some humility using "I think" or "i dont believe" or " i would be surprised" etc... would help a lot of people on here.
