$ETH, seeing it as triple zz correction. Although I dont prefer wxywz correction but thats all what i have . ETH must stay above Red zone on weekly to stay bullish.


Some of the majors, especially $LTC, and $BCH look like absolute ass. Can't be too bullish on the entire altcoin market as long as that is the case. If $XRP's Swell conference is the only thing pulling up alts I doubt this move will be a sustained one.
