if we are in a clear uptrend I don’t try to time the pullback because then I miss the fat green daily candles. I look out for a break of clear levels of resistance to confirm a change in trend (BTC 40k) then no resistance till 50k. I also knew the market was bearish (funding rates were negative) but we didn’t drop past 29k tested 3 times, and OI wasn’t very high so there wasn’t much leverage. this means the down trend was dying out. once shorts got liquidated on the big green candle to 35k, sentiment started to change, less fear. big candles = strong bull trend to counter the weakening bear trend. i started to strap up for the ride.I don't think the bull market is off. But I'm not sure there is enough data to suggest pullbacks are over. So I wondered what your analysis was that makes you say that?
as to why the uptrend isn’t over, less leverage in the system, haven’t reached peak greed/ euphoria. the last BTC bull peaks never looked like the current market imo. China can’t dump on us this time. Gov printing with infrastructure bull, whales have still been accumulating according to on chain metrics during the dip. All weak hands already sold and gave into fear
