Take it with a grain of salt. Roll Eyes

Bitcoin pundits had bet on prices recovering after U.S. investors filed their taxes. But as markets headed into the close on Tax Day, prices pulled back dramatically below $8,000.
Bitcoin fell more than $200 in 30 minutes, to a low of $7,861 as of 4:00 p.m. ET, according to CoinDesk. The digital currency has dropped roughly 45 percent this year, after trading above $14,000 in January.
The Internal Revenue Service views bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as property, meaning profits from transactions are subject to capital gains tax. U.S. households could owe roughly $25 billion in taxes for digital currency holdings after bitcoin's meteoric rise last year, according to Tom Lee, head of research at Fundstrat Global Advisors.

If the market actually paid attention to the tax day, then it would have done so a few days before the 'deadline', and not jump up massively on that exact day. Buy the rumor sell the news, remember?

That being said, I am pretty pleased with how Bitcoin is somewhat maintaining a steady line around the $8000 level. At the moment the price shot up from $6800 to $8000 I was quite skeptical, especially with the frequent dumps taking the market back down, but now we're a good couple of days further, the market shows slight signs of confidence. If we are now forming ranges on the way up instead of on the way down like how things were in the last months, people can prepare themselves for more green in the coming weeks/months. Important for now is to demolish that $9000 level, everything else comes later.

It takes me three weeks to get my refund, though I guess people could be getting those tax refund loans.
