One of the most commented phrases in any trader's forum is how boring professional trading is. Moreover, it must be so, since the main enemy of a trader is the influence of emotions in making decisions, both positive and negative. Maintaining the ability to make a decision and a logical execution means staying away from emotions.
Well, this market must be the most professional on the planet!
A new day is rising in Europe at the same price range in recent weeks. These days we have seen attempts at the top, downward attempts, but the price is still here. The indicators are compressed into useless ornaments that inform us only that there is nothing to report.
So this is the news, the market is once again in a phase of price compression, and if we look at the obvious, the lack of visibility is overwhelming. That's why in these situations, a trader tends to look for a resource with high correlation and this trend that acts as a compass.
ETH / BTC daily chart
In my case, the ETH / BTC couple plays this role. This pair continues to maintain a trend structure and remains on the bullish side of the image. As long as I do not see a break down in the trend line, the market, in my opinion, continues to look at the price scale.
