Oil: Short-Term Sell

 

WTI Crude Oil Futures, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The crucial commodity hit the $49 per barrel level at the end of last week, and since then has been in a weak correction that took it up to the crucial $50 level. The global rally in risk assets and the weakness of the Dollar wasn’t enough to cause a bounce in oil, and this relative weakness hints on a new leg lower in the short-term downtrend.

The re-test of the $47.10 low looks likely if the commodity dips below $48.75 with no strong support level found below that. Short-term traders should place a stop-loss order above the $51.00 resistance, while the $51.80 level provides a good opportunity for longer-term traders. Long-term shorts could be boosted by the negative fundamental developments for oil.

Bitcoin: Long-Term Buy (update)

 

Bitcoin, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Bitcoin has surpassed our long-term target, and it’s now testing its all-time high. Trading volumes are on the rise and volatility is expected to rise further in the next couple of days. Those traders who opt to hold a long-term position after reaching the target zone might consider placing the stop-loss below the $1215 level, while the $1145 level is also a good choice for a broader stop.

Trade Recommendation: ICON

Published

on

The ICON/Bitcoin pair (ICX/BTC) has looked bearish since February 3, 2018 when it took out support of 0.0006. This triggered the double top pattern on the daily chart. The breakout forced those who bought above 0.00006 to cut their losses. This started a bear run that has driven the market to as low as 0.0002041 on July 12.

The good news is the market appears to show signs of reversal. We have technicals to support our claim.

Technical analysis show that ICON/Bitcoin is on the verge of breaking out of a large falling wedge pattern. The pair has a bullish bias for the following reasons.

First, all notable support and resistance levels are converging at key support of 0.00021. Bulls have preserved this level since the second half of December 2017. Technical indicators show that they are likely to defend it again.

We have the daily RSI respecting support of 28. Even though it has yet to break out of the resistance, the fact that it is near oversold levels tells us that a breach of the resistance is very likely.

In addition, the daily MACD is showing a bullish cross. This suggests that the market is starting to show signs of strength.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00021 support as possible. If the market manages to stay above this level, bulls will inspire a rally to our initial target of 0.00036. Take that out and the market can climb to 0.00045.

The process may take more than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Stop: 0.0002

Trade Recommendation: TRON

Published

on

TRON/Bitcoin (TRX/BTC) looked bearish on June 1, 2018 when it took out support of 0.000008. This activated the double top pattern on the daily chart. The price action triggered numerous stop losses. Consequently, the pair plummeted to as low as 0.00000509 on July 10.

While the pair shed over 36% of its value in a month, it appears that the market is bound for a strong rally. This can be very profitable. We have technicals to support our view.

Technical analysis show that TRON/Bitcoin has broken out of a falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. This breakout is accompanied by multiple bullish signals.

First, we can see the daily RSI break out from its month long resistance that has kept the market bearish. This hints that TRX/BTC is gaining momentum. To affirm that view, we can see a bullish cross on the daily MACD.

Furthermore, the 4-day, 8-day, and 21-day moving averages are reversing their direction. All of these are happening while the Bollinger Bands are contracting. With 0.000005 support holding, we can expect an upward price movement very soon.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000005 as possible. As long as bulls hold this support, they have all the momentum they need to climb to our initial target of 0.000007.

The process can take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Zcash

Published

on

The Zcash/US Dollar pair (ZEC/USD) lost almost 70% of its value this year when it dropped to $150.10 on July 12, 2018. With such a huge plummet, some investors might think it’s prudent to stay on the sidelines for now and wait for a clear sign of reversal. While they wait, we think there’s a good opportunity to bottom fish the market. We have technicals to support our view.

Technical analysis show that Zcash/US Dollar has broken out of a falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The breakout comes after the pair dropped to long-term support of $150. This inspired the market to rally to as high as $222 on July 2. The rally, however, was short-lived as those trapped around $200 dumped positions to minimize losses. Nevertheless, ZEC/USD continues to show signs of strength.

First, the retest of support on July 12 and 13 was a huge success. Currently, we can see the pair creating a bullish pennant on the hourly chart. On top of that, the market has managed to turn the daily RSI resistance of 46.65 to support. Lastly, we can see a long bullish divergence on the daily MACD.

The strategy is to buy as close to $170 as possible. If bulls stay above this level, the market will likely rally to our initial target of $240. Take that out and the market has an easier path to $280, but that may take some time.

The process may take more than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: As close to $170 as possible.

Target: $240 first and then $280.

Stop: $164
