Technically, that might be an excellent chance to enter the market. To do that, you will be looking for a bearish reversal/correction that will inevitably happen somewhere on the way. As we neither catch falling knives nor launching rockets, you’d wait until bulls stop pushing.

Otherwise, the secondary plan is a temporary sideways move before the next upswing takes place – a series of shorter bearish candles may be a good indication for this scenario.
