Right here, in 2018’s bear run (lasted for 11 months), the ground worth was “~ $6.4K involving a number of ‘DeadCatBounce‘ with as much as 80% rebounds. Throughout this bearish part, the share of provide in loss grew +20% as a result of BUY/HODL at costs above ~$6.4K.” In contrast this to the aforementioned state of affairs, the report famous:
