Dash has had a great couple days, but is no within sight of a 3rd arc pair at ~$150.  Likely will correct soon.

Ethereum Classic

ETC has also had a great few days.  A 5th arc pair is nearby at ~ $14.  It may be late to chase this one also.


ETH, like the preceding coins, has had a great few days, but is now within eyesight of a 5th arc pair at ~$180.  It seems a bit late to chase this one also.


ICNETH rallied as soon as it exited the 2nd arc pair. I tweeted this breakout at the time.  It looks like it has some more upside to go.  Might be a good trade opportunity still.


LTC found support at a Gann angle.  I tweeted this support at the time.  Targets are 3rd arc pair at $37, and then the 5th arc pair, $57, if the 3rd arc pair falls.


REP has been a sleeper that went vertical the other day.  It is poised to rally back to the 5th arc pair at ~ $40.  Might be a good trade opportunity.


XBT just keeps on rolling past every resistance in it’s way.  It corrects where it should, but the corrections are always short and shallow.  After adjusting my scale, the next serious resistance seems to be at a 5th arc pair at ~$2500.  Pretty round number…

Stellar Lumens

XLM has gotten through the arc that stopped its advance a few days ago. A rally to ~ .075 seems likely.  This might be a good trade opportunity.


XMR has done well the past few days.  It is facing a 4th arc pair which will likely cause it to correct.  But the 5th arc pair is a better target at ~ $70.  This might be a good trade opportunity.


XRP broke free of the arc that had held her for a few days.  I tweeted the breakout.  But though the rally that followed was sweet, the correction seems deeper than I expected.  I’m not sure I’m comfortable with being long here. If you are long watch this carefully.


ZEC corrected hard following its dramatic rise. This might be a good trade opportunity.  The 5th arc pair is way up by $350.

      Augur is kind of low volume at the moment and stellar actually fell back into the resistant zone. I think monero will have the major spike today. in 3 hours there is a major announcement coming https://twitter.com/fluffyponyza/status/867362460797480961

          I don’t know. My trade was news driven… I lost some, but could sell early and then shorted. I think it could take a long while to recover. I’d cut my losses. Sorry

    Is there an article here that details what the arc pairs are all about? I can’t find it in the tutorials area.

    Hi, I’m new in here (I’m a newby ), I really like your blog, thank you to share some tips with us, this is a great blog.
    The arc you drawing in your analysis charts to make your predictions, is it the Fibonacci Arcs method ? I just like to know the name of this method to try to learn by myself 🙂
    Thanks again 🙂

    hello comments on ETC? It seems it’s trading at 24$ in Korea, but on bitfinex it seems is returning back to $14. Please advise.

      If it were me, I would just trade on one of the big exchanges and not be messing around with a small regional exchange, unless it was to take advantage of arbitrage opportunities. (Sell at $24, buy at $14 at the same time.)

    Hi Jim,

    I made a mistake and bought XRP at 0.34, do you think that the price is going to fall even further and I should sale to cut my losses or is there another spike coming ?

    Thanks Jim

      imho, buying at .34 was not a mistake. It feels bad at the moment, but 3 weeks from now (again, imho) you will be bragging to your friends that you bought at .34. I am buying at these prices still. We will see…

    Hi Jim,
    How do you think about Monero after Announcement?
    Almost people told XMR is dead.
    I need your advice.

    hi Jim,

    I also did the mistake of having bought news on Monero, and I’m -12.000 USD on Monero, and I don’t know if I should keep it and if it would drop much more, because I thought it was over, but it seems it can still go down.

    Regarding zCash, and Ripple at 0.3$, do you find it a good trade opportunity?

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for all your help, I was able to remember your words and try to analyse the situation even on a “desperate” situation, and what I found is that I’m going to do a great trade with Monero. As we can observe, the buy side is really strong while the the sell side is almost clear until 70+, which makes me believe that this is a whole strategy to liquidate margin calls and weak hands.

      Yes, it feels like bitcoin is getting all the money and attention the past few days. But that won’t last much longer. Bitcoin is hyper-extended and ready to fall over.
