Here it is May 2015 and after an incredibly frustrating pattern (on most coins) for many months of either nothing but down, down, down, or sideways action we finally are starting to see some massive upwards gains in many coins.
Bitcoin has not done much lately, but it does seem to be making a solid bottoming pattern in the $230.00 area.
Dogecoin has advanced from around $90 per million coins all the way up to the $135 per million coins area, and just recently Litecoin has advanced off a $1.40 bottom up to $1.80 (per coin). These are sizable advances, and many other coins (such as Blackcoin) have done even better recently.
For alt coin traders now is the time to stay sharp and stay focused.
