    Should hold or not?

      Hold, on the Daily chart or 4 hour chart, the chart pattern forms a triple bottom/broadening formation which will take us to and break $424. Indicators such as the MACD moving averages is about to cross each other, and RSI points upwards. Additionally, we are in a uptrend. BTG has been quiet and seems oversold, so the bulls might probably return soon…
