DAX: Short-Term Buy

 

DAX, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The German index has held up above the 12,000 level despite the selling pressure this week, although it slid out of the rising long-term trend channel. The bullish cross on the MACD indicator suggests a reversal, and a positive outcome on the French election could propel the benchmark back in the channel.

The outperformance of the NASDAQ (see daily analysis) suggests a test of the prior highs, while the recent lows provide an optimal stop-loss level in the case of another leg lower. Further support levels for longer-term positions are found near 11,920 and 11,850.

Bitcoin: Long-Term Buy (update)

 

Bitcoin, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Bitcoin rallied past the resistance level that kept a lid on the currency for almost two weeks, and it’s now only a few percent off the prior highs near $1295. The move could justify a new stop-loss level for long-term traders. The cryptocurrency is also on a short-term buy signal after the break-out above $1215.

A weaker resistance level is ahead at $1260, while the $1295-$1300 zone might be the next significant hurdle for BTC.  The $1200-$1215 zone should now act as strong support, with last week’s lows just below $1170 offer an optimal level for placing stop-loss orders.

Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin Gold

Published

on

Bitcoin Gold is looking barely a little shinier today. There is a Minor Pivot Stack formed that shows a good risk reward ratio setup.

Worth a serious consideration for a pop to the upside before the Monthly Pivot Range low, which will be major resistance.

You will want to pocket some profits at the first profit target of 18.30, and bail out of the balance of the position at 20.480.

Enter long on strength if the price exceeds yesterday’s high of 13.100. If triggered then place the stop loss below the Pivot Stack low at 10.850

If the trade signal is not triggered within 72 hours, cancel the order.

Entry Price: 13.100
Stop Loss: 10.850
Profit Targets: First profit target 18.30. Second profit target 20.480 . Once price reaches first profit target bring stop loss to breakeven (entry point).

Trade Recommendation: Salt

Published

on

Salt (SALT/BTC) printed a fresh yearly low of 0.000051 on November 26, 2018. At that price, the market was down by more than 95% from the 2018 peak of 0.001244. If you’re a bottom picker, finding assets that have been brutally battered should excite you. However, not all altcoins that have lost over 90% of their value will recover. Some will likely cease to exist.

Nevertheless, there are gems worth buying even under extreme bearish conditions. They may not be able to immediately reverse their trend, but they can provide opportunities to grow your BTC balance. We believe Salt is one of those gems.

Technical analysis shows that SALT/BTC is working hard to establish a short-term bottom at 0.0000552. This area is a strong weekly support. In July 2018, Salt dropped to this area but lower prices were quickly rejected. Markets tend to remember this type of price action. The swift rejection in July showed that bulls are ready to defend 0.0000552.

So far, this assumption is proven to be correct. Even though Salt dropped to 0.000051, bulls quickly recovered the support and closed the week of November 25 above 0.0000552. The market has stayed above that level since. This tells us that participants are likely accumulating at the range low. If this is true, this altcoin will eventually generate the momentum to rally to our range high.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000055 as possible. If bulls continue to defend the support, this crypto will likely have the legs to bounce to our initial target, which is the range midpoint of 0.000083. Take that out and the next target is 0.00011.

The process may take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Republic Protocol

Published

on

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Republic Protocol (REN/BTC) since the second week of December when it showed bullish potential. It came off lows of 0.00000551 on December 7, 2018 and climbed as high as 0.00000838 on December 9. That’s an increase of over 52% in two days.

Quick rises like this usually have an effect on one’s psyche. The fear of missing out can easily draw a trader into buying the top. When you start to have this feeling, always remember that everything is subject to the laws of gravity. So instead of buying the pump, wait for the asset to dump. That’s where you can place buy orders.

REN is giving us this opportunity today.

Technical analysis shows that REN/BTC has broken out of a falling wedge on the 1-hour chart. Interestingly, the breakout was sparked by a strong bounce from support of 0.00000551. This tells us that bulls are trying to establish a bottom at this level.

The bounce, however, was met by the 100 MA, which was acting as a stiff resistance. REN has been pulling back since but this shouldn’t be a cause for concern. What we want to see happen is for REN to enter an accumulation phase near 0.00000551. If the market establishes a new base in this area, it will likely ignite another bull run.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00000551 as possible. As long as REN stays above this level, bulls have the momentum to rally to our initial target of 0.00000660. Take that out and the next target is 0.00000694.

The process may take less than a month.
