Ethereum Classic bull run recap

Ethereum classic price blew past the short-term bearish scenario issued this week. The daily chart's bearish volume, which was thought to be a sign of concern, ended up being a Smart Money sand-in-the-eye meant to keep traders from entering an imminent bull run. 

Although the invalidation point was issued at the top of $28.19, no alternative scenario was forecasted. ETC price set up a classic 2-1 bullish trade setup in opposite direction of the bearish thesis . In hindsight the bullrun seems like an obvious scenario to identify.

Crypto Season usually witnesses a liquidity rotation throughout the Alt Coins. In previous seasons traders would see the top market cap coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum XRP rally. 

Eventually, smart money begins pumping the mid-caps and smaller coins until ultimate FOMO reaches the notorious meme coins.


The Path to Crypto Season 

The bullish display of Ethereum Classic certainly provokes the idea that we are indeed in an "early bull market" more at a conservative "scalpers market". The bear market, which has been ongoing for several months, may have paralyzed many traders into pure speculation. 

Overtrading when times finally get exciting can also cause errors in chart analysis. This month the market has provided trade setups worth taking for those willing to engage. Still, the task of a crypto trader is to "identify the best moving assets that will make the most amount of money in the least amount of time". - Nas FF
