Guys.. don't try and understand what's going on and predict by what you see/feel. Full time forex trader speaking here.
I've learned early in my career that doing the opposite of what I think the price will do works better. How could this be you ask?
That's how financial markets work. Big moves just cant take away everyone with it, there needs to be some kind of rekt-ing before. That's how it works.
In forex trading, before a big move which is somewhat easy to predict happens, there will be some contrarian technical patterns forming on lower timeframes to lure emotional people into getting out or taking the opposite position, and there will be some manipulation in order to hit people's stop losses. That's how it works. Because a big move cant take everyone with it.
In crypto, people buy n hold, I think a good way the market takes people out is when the pump we all wait for is delayed while other coins moon. I see a lot of people switching sides and going into btc from xrp. That's a good sign for me. And should be for you too.
Critical thinking guys, xrp pumps outta nowhere all the time, when people expect it less.
PS.: Take a look at XRP/BTC chart. What goes up comes down and what comes down goes up (when fundamentals are in check).
