BTC wave count analysis

Due to yesterday’s drop, the opportunity of the increase which began on Jan 24 being a five-wave ascending change is now at paramount risk.

The reason for this is that the rate is close to bresuchg down from the 1-2 trendline, that would inverify this diagram. 

additionally, if the ongoing decrease is the fourth wave (red), sub-waves A and C have had an exact 1:1 ratio (black). 

Therefore, a carry oned drop would suggest which the decrease is corrective instead.
