Starting to see sellers come in. Look for what price “should be doing” that it isn’t doing right around now. i.e.Heavier selling coming in yet price remaining afloat. Need to trap some before we move, if up is the case. I am not sure. $BTC

After rejection again there are 2 small bounces that fail at the equal highs within the range. After second failure buyers are toast, done stepping in at the low. Good opportunity to side with aggressive O.F. $BTC
