Where Are We in this Market Cycle? - CRYPTO FRIDAY

Hey DEFI TIMES community,

We are in the midst of another big bull cycle. But where exactly are we in this market cycle?

If you have been around in 2017 you know exactly how difficult it is to know the current stage of the cycle.

Are we already topping out? Or is there still a long way to go?

It’s not different this time! First, DeFi summer happened in 2020, which topped out very quickly. Then we saw the NFT mania, which also seems to come to an end very soon!

But these are all local tops; they can’t predict the stage of the macrocycle.

If you ask yourself this question, it’s almost always useful to look at the famous Wall Street Cheat Sheet.

There’s no denying that we are somewhere in the middle of the cycle. We are definitely not in spring anymore (Optimism). 

If you pick up the sentiment on Twitter, most people believe that this cycle is somewhere between belief and thrill - quite near the end but most likely not in Euphoria.

How long could it continue? Maybe 3 months? Maybe 6 months? Up to 12 months or more?

No one knows for sure, but one thing is certain: this altcoin macrocycle will come to an end sooner or later.

Are you prepared?
