Has the Dow Jones reached top and Bitcoin continuing down?

Could this be the top of the financial market forming while the majority of everyone doesn't realize it yet? To put it into perspective, 2020 was a sh*t show with markets melting and governments having to create a lie to "restart" the economy. It's self evident what happened if you had your eye on the Federal Reserve and Corporate events prior to 2020. Markets were become illiquid and CEO's were taking their golden parachutes. We're not stupid! Depending on which camp you're in markets are going to melt up while those in the other camp believe Armageddon is right around the corner. The truth? Only time will tell. However there are tools people use to "measure" a market's direction.

Markets going up or down can form what is called a megaphone pattern? By definition, "A megaphone pattern is a pattern that consists of a minimum of two higher highs and two lower lows. The pattern is generally formed when the market is highly volatile in nature and traders are not confident about the market direction. Normally this pattern is visible when the market is at its top or bottom." FN1

The chart below appears to be a Megaphone pattern that the DJIA has printed.

Schwab supports the pattern :
"Bullish: The rare Megaphone Bottom—a.k.a.
Broadening Pattern—can be recognized by its
successively higher highs and lower lows, which
form after a downward move. The bullish pattern
is confirmed when, usually on the third upswing,
prices break above the prior high but fail to fall
below this level again. Bearish counterpart:
Megaphone Top." FN2

What's going on with Bitcoin? It's been 133 days since the All Time High and price is down approximately 38%. With the DJIA possibly doing the Megaphone screaming meltdown is Bitcoin in a bullish or bearish position?

Bitcoin (Daily/BitStamp)

Is a bearish symmetrical triangle being formed? If so, it's a continuation pattern from the All Time High of $69,000 and it's formed
by two converging trend lines that are symmetrical in relation to the horizontal line. The Triangle should be completed on or about September 1, 2022. The symmetrical triangle takes longer to form normally than the bearish pennant.
