At press time, bitcoin is changing hands near $9,500, representing a 6.5% drop on the day.
Today, the creator of the Bollinger Bands indicator, John Bollinger, has just taken Twitter to warn about Bitcoin’s current price action.
Bollinger believes that it’s time to be ‘cautious or short’ for traders as Bitcoin is trading just below the $9,500 level.

Just before bitcoin broke $10k, John claimed the BTC Price to See a Massive Rally, and surprisingly, within a couple of days the BTC price hit $10k resistance.
