S&P 500: Short-Term Sell

 

S&P 500 futures, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The index remains below the line-in-the-sand zone between $2350 and $2355 and the low volume bounce on Monday creates a good short-term opportunity to place a short trade. The prior leader of the global rally, the DAX is still trending lower, and the US indices are likely to follow suit.

The declining short-term trend-line provides resistance near 2345, while primary support stands just below the current price at 2332. A re-test of the 2319 level is likely, while the 2308 level serves as a target for the next possible swing lower. A move above 2350 would likely lead to a re-test of the declining major trend-line.

USD/CAD: Short-Term Buy (update)

 

USD/CAD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The pair respected the long-term uptrend line as we expected, and rallied strongly after hitting the strong support zone around the 1.3250 level. The short-term setup remains bullish, and the move higher justifies a higher stop-loss level near the prior 4-hour swing low.

The declining trend-line resistance near 1.3410-1.3420 is still provides an ideal initial target. Longer-term traders might look for a re-test of the 1.3515 level, with a slightly wider stop-loss level. Primary resistance is still found near 1.3450, while a move below 1.32 would be a very bearish development.

Trade Recommendation: Mainframe

Published

on

We’ve been watching Mainframe (MFT/BTC) ever since it breached support of 0.0000013 on November 13, 2018. At that point, we were curious whether the market will establish a bullish higher low at 0.000001 or will it revisit 2018 lows of 0.0000007.

Mainframe chose the latter as it broke below support of 0.000001 on November 30. The retest on December 3 was the confirmation that the market was headed to our range low of 0.0000007. The next question was whether the support will hold. We got the answer to that question recently.

Technical analysis shows that MFT/BTC is respecting support of 0.0000007. This price action has enabled the market to print a double bottom pattern on the daily chart. This means that the market has created a durable bottom and prices likely won’t fall any further. Also, notice how volume surged on January 8, 2019 when the market touched 0.0000007. This tells us that bottom-pickers and bargain hunters are ready to absorb selling pressure at this level.

In addition, we are confident in Mainframe’s technical setup because we’ve seen the same structure in other altcoins. For instance, Zilliqa (ZIL/BTC) has almost the same structure. Zilliqa relied on this pattern to stop the bleeding and generate bullish momentum. We expect MFT/BTC to do the same.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0000007 as possible.  As long as this Mainframe stays above this level, it will likely rally to our targets of 0.000001 and 0.0000013.

The process may take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: ETHLend

Published

on

ETHLend (LEND/BTC) is a market that looks poised to touch the range high. Let me explain. This pair started to build its base on August 14, 2018, when it dropped to as low as 0.0000018. ETHLend worked hard to carve a bottom at that level. However, bears managed to breach the support on September 11. This drove ETHLend to its 2018 low of 0.00000141 on September 12.

Fortunately, bulls came to the rescue and lifted the market back up to 0.0000018 support on September 16. The move below the support became a bear trap. This ignited a strong rally to 0.00000431 where it was rejected by the 200-day moving average on October 28. Participants who saw this signal dumped their positions. As a result, ETHLend revisited the range low of 0.0000018.

The good news is the dump allows us to bottom pick the market.

Technical analysis shows that LEND/BTC has created a double bottom pattern on the daily chart. This structure tells us that the market has established a durable bottom at 0.0000018.

In addition, the market printed huge volume on January 14, 2019. The heavy volume pushed the market up to 0.0000027 where it was once again rejected by the 200-day MA. Nevertheless, the volume uptick is a signal that market is almost done accumulating. If that’s the case, we can expect ETHLend to pump in the coming days.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to 0.0000018 as possible. As long as bulls hold this support, they will likely ignite a rally to the range midpoint of 0.0000026 and then the range high of 0.00000342 that was mentioned in the beginning of the article.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: NEO

Published

on

NEO (NEO/USD) looks like a market that wants to break out of accumulation. The market started the accumulation process on December 7, 2018 when it established support of $5.50. This crypto traded around that level for a couple of weeks until a surge in volume showed participants that the market was ready to move higher. The volume uptick ignited a rally that sent the market to as high as $9.36 on December 24, 2018.

If the market was still bearish, NEO would have dumped back down to $5.50 support or even went below it. However, the market generated a higher low set up of $6.92 on December 28, 2018. That was enough for many to start placing long positions in the market.

Technical analysis shows that NEO/USD breached resistance of $9 on January 8, 2019. This triggered the break out from an inverse head and shoulders pattern on the shorter time frames. As a result, the market rallied to as high as $10.08 on January 9.

While NEO is currently pulling back, the rally gave the market its first higher high in months. If NEO can stay above support of $7.30, the market’s sentiment will turn from neutral to slightly bullish.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to $7.30 support as possible. The 100 moving average on the 12-hour chart as well as the 200 moving average on the 4-hour chart are crawling around that price area. They will help keep the price above the support.

Should the price manage to stay above $7.30, the market will likely generate the momentum to rally to our target of $9.00. Take that out and the next target is $13.50.

The process may take a less than month.
