DAX: Short-Term Sell (Update)

DAX, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The German Index remains very close to its post-election highs just above the 12,750 level, although it failed to make progress in recent days. The benchmark is still clearly in overbought territory, and slightly above the upper boundary of its dominant advancing trend channel, pointing to a correction in the coming days. Our recommendation remains intact with the stop-loss level above the 12,800 level and the initial target zone between 12,400 and 12,500. The MACD is close to providing a sell signal at overbought levels.

      Hi great question don’t worry 🙂
      Stock indices likd tvs DAX, S&P 500 are very easy to short on the most platforms (usually through CFDs, but that doesn’t matter for you) you just simply sell them when you don’t have an open position.

      Same goes for the biggest stocks. Smaller stocks might be trickier and sometimes costly,but I don’t recommend shorting smaller stocks as a beginner anyway.

      If you have a question regarding a specific platform, I am here to help 🙂

      Good trading!

    Can I use fidelity or robinhood to short DAX? And your other recommendations. It would be nice to have a video tutorial on this. Thank you for teaching me.

      I will look into those two brokers and get back to you with the best options soon!

      So a quick update on shorting the indices and trading the recommendations:

      The S&P 500 is easy you can simply by the short-S&P 500 ETF with the ticker SE, or short sell the ticker SPY (this doesn’t work at Robin Hood).

      The DAX is trickier, as there is no short ETF so the only option with stocks is to short-sell the ticker EWG.

      Gold: the ticker GLD tracks the price of gold, you can buy and short sell it.

      Oil is harder to track precisely with stocks, the best way is to use the ticker USO which tracks WTI Crude.

      As Fidelity and Robin Hood doesn’t offer futures or currency trading, you won’t be able to trade commodities or currencies directly just through ETFs. Might be worth considering a broker with a more wide selection of assets (Interactive Brokers or TD Ameritrade for example). A good resource for trading ETFs is this website.

      Let me know if you need any more information!

Trade Recommendation: EOS

Published

on

EOS (EOS/USD) is a market that looks primed to explode.

It established a short-term bottom of $1.55 on December 7, 2018. At that point, the market lost over 93% from its 2018 high of $23.029 on April 29. While this crypto looked dreadful when it recorded its 2018 low on December 7, volume on that day was significantly heavy. This told us that the smart money was accumulating positions in bulk while stopping the bleeding at the same time.

With buyers emerging, EOS entered an accumulation period as it range traded between $1.75 and $3 for over two months. This period ended yesterday when the price decided to trend higher.

Technical analysis shows that EOS took out resistance of $3 on February 18, 2019. This triggered the breakout from range accumulation, which may have likely signalled that the bottom is in. Also, the breakout looks valid. Yesterday, the coin printed volume that’s over 300% of its daily average. This tells us that sentiment has likely shifted from bearish to bullish.

Yesterday’s move, however, pushed EOS to overbought territory. Also, the 200-day moving average is acting as a resistance. These signals indicate that this altcoin is due for a pullback. We’ll take this chance to buy on dips.

The strategy is to buy on the retest of $3. If bulls can stay above this support, they’ll likely gather the momentum to rally to our range midpoint of $4. Take that out and the next target is $5.

The process may take less than a month.

As of this writing, the EOS/US Dollar pair is trading at $3.7441 on Bitfinex.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: As close to $3 as possible.

Targets: $4 and $5.

Stop: $2.88

Trade Recommendation: Cardano

Published

on

We’ve been tracking Cardano (ADA/BTC) for a while now. After respecting our range high of 0.0000134 on January 10, 2019, we hoped that it will revisit our range low of 0.00000848 so we can bottom pick the market. We had our hopes up on February 6 when the market went below our range midpoint of 0.00001094. Unfortunately, the market quickly extinguished that hope as Cardano recovered 0.00001094 on February 8.

At that point, we stayed patient to see whether the market would look bearish again. Over a week later, we’re convinced that Cardano is a market that wants to trend higher.

Technical analysis show that ADA/BTC is poised to take out resistance of 0.0000134. This view comes after the market printed a bullish higher low setup of 0.000001055 on February 6. With this setup, Cardano looks ready to trigger a breakout from an inverse head and shoulders pattern.

Technical indicators also appear to back up this view. The 12-hour RSI is also printing an inverse head and shoulders pattern. It looks primed to take out resistance of 60. On top of that, we can see the 200 moving average on the 12-hour chart crawling below our range midpoint of 0.00001094. It will act as an additional support and help keep Cardano trending higher.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00001094 as possible. If bulls can stay above this level, they will likely generate a rally to our targets of 0.0000134 and 0.0000167.

The process may take a month.

As of this writing, the Cardano/Bitcoin pair is trading at 0.00001164 on Binance.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: As close to 0.00001094 as possible.

Targets: 0.0000134 and 0.0000167.

Stop: 0.0000105

Trade Recommendation: 0x (ZRX)

Published

on

The primary reason why we don’t allow the fear of missing out lure us into buying coins that have already pumped is because markets always pull back. With a little patience, you can usually get your orders filled at your desired price or at least close to it.

Take for example 0x (ZRX/BTC). The market climbed as high as 0.000219 in May 2018. Almost a year later, 0x is back at the level where it started trading on Binance at 0.000063. If you bought the top and held on to your positions, you would have lost over 70% of your investments. Nevertheless, it appears that 0x is in a great position to make up for some of those losses. Thus, bottom-pickers and bargain hunters may want to look into this trade.

Technical analysis shows that ZRX/BTC may be printing a short-term bottom at 0.000063. This price area is a key level for the market. When 0x recovered this support in March 2018, it ignited a strong rally that sent the market to an all-time high of 0.000219 on Binance. Therefore, we expect savvy traders and bargain hunters to go long on the market at current levels.

So far, participants are reacting according to expectations. 0x showed signs of life as soon as it touched this level on February 14, 2019. On top of that, the daily RSI is printing a bullish divergence. This tells us that bullish momentum is on the rise.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000063 as possible. As long as 0x trades above this level, bulls will likely gather the momentum to climb to our target of 0.00008056.

The process may take less than a month.

Target: 0.00008056

Stop: 0.0000605
