Is BTC Still a Sell?

One market that continues to grab the attention of experienced traders and neophytes alike is the digital currency market.

So, let’s look at the chart and see where we stand now and going forward…

And here’s how I see the potential bear market shaping up for BTC…

The BTC futures contract (BTC) daily time frame is in a down trend, with the market making lower lows and lower highs. 

There is a down Fibonacci extension below the market price point 11,060, about -2,134 ticks below the market.
