The situation back then was completely different.
-There was a strong six months old downtrend in place
-Back then we saw huge buy orders with single entities buying tens of thousands of bitcoins
-Price was down 90% from the ATH
There is also a lesson, that I learned myself at that time:
I wanted to buy at the 2$ double bottom, but could not because I had no dry powder left. I finally entered at 5$ though, which was good enough for me.
Right now we are in a situation, where it is still not clear if we will have a dip or a crash. A decisive move upwards is unlikely imho.
The point is: be careful who you listen to, they may not have your best interests at heart.
