Riot Blockchain 480m chart:
Medium term term view from the all time low in March 2020 for $MARA is very much the same for $RIOT. There is enough evidence to support an extended wave III in progress. Blue (3) is favoured to have peaked on January 8th at 29.36 with blue (4) now in progress. BTC seems to be forming a wave 4 triangle, so it is possible that RIOT does not move lower for blue (4). Regardless, it is important to know, the right side is higher, we do not like to short this instrument but like to buy pullbacks in 3, 7 or 11 swing to extremes.
In Conclusion, blue (4) may still be in progress, but depending on Bitcoin, a triangle may be in progress. Regardless we do not like to trade the sideways zones but like to trade extreme areas.
