But I like the "untidy" look of the shown big triangle unfoldinge since june. If a triangle is too perfect and all its edges are in line, it is mostly a fake and the next move will take the opposite direction as expected.
And of course some money might leave bitcoin and go to the altcoins now with segwit2x.
Anyway, personally I agree more to the sentence "the chart makes the news" than vice versa. A view which also much more comfortable for me since I'm not an expert on blockchain. I can't fathom what positive consequences seemingly bad news might have or if it is already priced in.
