Chart below shows sellers did appear in the blue box area and cryptocurrency has turned lower. It has already reached 50% Fibonacci retracement of the rally from ((b)) wave low allowing sellers from blue box to get into a risk free position. Decline from $134.06 high is in 3 waves but while price stays below $129.50 high, it has scope to become 5 waves or 5 swings. Once it manages to complete 5 waves or 5 swings down from $134.06 high, that will add more conviction to the view that decline has resumed and we should get at least 1 more leg down against $134.06 high.
