First let's get into what is going on with the levels. The minor 324 to 334 (,618 of previous bear swing) has been slowly compromised. The problem is the lack of momentum. When price pushed above 334, it should have attracted more buyers and momentum should follow. Instead price went no where which is not a sign.
I am in general, and I am still waiting for the pull back that I wrote about in previous reports. My plan is very simple: IF price retraces to the 306 to 295 (.618 of current swing), and it can show a reversal pattern on a smaller time frame, then I will get back in. Keep in mind that I am flexible, and willing to get in sooner IF I see a compelling formation, but there is nothing to write about. If price just goes without me, I don't mind, it won't be the first time. I have lost more money because of the fear of missing out, than by missing out. Waiting is a more profitable strategy, but not a fun one.
In terms of wave count, this market should be in the beginning of the Wave 3 of 5 again, BUT this leg is not acting like a Wave 3 at all. The 334 break should have been awe inspiring and instead was lackluster to put it nicely. Plus Wave 3's are never the shortest wave, and right now when I compare it to the subdegree Wave 1 structure, it is shorter. This behavior leads me to believe the current up swing is nothing more than part of the subdegree Wave 2 correction. Which means there is still potential for a retrace to the that I am interested in.
In summary, this market seems to go in spurts, and again is waiting its turn for the order flow. Price structure continues to be , but the most recent leg up is more likely part of the corrective wave that this market has been in for a few days now. Keep in mind, a rally can appear out of nowhere, and I am okay with missing the move. I prefer to wait for a retrace into the 306 area and see if the market can meet my criteria in order for me to get back in. If I miss it, there will be more opportunities.
Comments and questions welcome.
BitFin lead the crash from $345 to $290 and was trading $5 to $8 cheaper then market during that ridiculous stop hunt.
The original run to $345 was the real deal and the move back down was a bear trap. The move back up was delayed many times by BitFin traders. Trust me, I watch many exchanges like a hawk....I won't be surprised if ETH tests ATH in 3 days considering action in ALTs in last couple days but I won't be surprised if it takes 2 more months either. BitFin seems to be trading normally this evening. Time will tell.
You can wake up in the morning and see it at $650. You just never know when it will happen. For me ETH looks ripe for a pop. All indicators are looking that way from retracements pushing quickly towards resistance, declining volume, RSI strong, etc.
