Analysis Market Consolidates the Bullish Turn for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple Published 1 week ago on November 7, 2018 By Tomàs Sallés After two days of Ethereum leading the market, today Bitcoin must contribute its part of the job. The ETH/USD and XRP/USD consolidate and show some degree of depletion in the short term. This is a typical market phase that is looking for weak hands making minimal gains at the first setback. We have reached the middle of the week and the crypto market keeps the bullish tone. At the beginning of the European session, the main players seem to be attracting purchases again after the Asian session marked by consolidation movements. The Ethereum price today gives the lead to Bitcoin after yesterday surpassing the previous high at 0.0336 ETH/BTC, which is the current price level. Ripple, for its part, tried yesterday to exceed the level of $0.55 but sales appeared and they are likely to consume most of the day consolidating the recent increases. Speaking about the cryptocurrency of Ripple Labs, several comments appeared today that tie the value of the XRP with the evolution of sales in the company from California in the coming months. I don’t see the point unless it is openly accepted that the XRP is at stake with the company and that sooner or later regulators will enforce securitization. Eventually, it can be a big business case but it is clear that this duality will not be allowed to continue for long. BTC/USD 240-Min The BTC/USD is currently trading at the price level of $6,515.24, consolidating above the resistance, that now turned to a support at $6,492. The next resistance is at the price level of $6,563 (price congestion resistance). This level is technically important because from this price level the Bitcoin can rise almost unhindered to $6,757. Below the current price, the first support is at the price level of $6,492 (support for price congestion). The next support zone is very strong and it stands at $6,400, where the exponential average of 50 periods and the simple average of 100 and 200 periods are converging. The third level of support for the BTC/USD is at $6,367 being the possible limit of falls without completely undoing the current bullish scenario. The MACD at 240-minutes chart shows a clear bullish profile but close to a short-term exhaustion. The indicators for the longer time frames are evolving in scenarios of the beginning of an uptrend and it is normal that there is some opposition. The DMI at 240-minutes shows bulls with BTC/USD control, while bears go to multi-week lows. The level of activity of the bears is so low, that it is very easy for short-term sales to appear. ETH/USD 240-Min The ETH/USD is currently trading at the price level of $221.13. Ethereum has twice tried to break the resistance at the price level of $223.16 (price congestion resistance) and has failed to do so for now. Failure to do so is a sign of weakness and Ethereum’s sales would easily appear. This resistance level is important for the ETH/USD as exceeding it would allow it to reach the $235 price level without any problems. Below the current price, the first support for the ETH/USD is at the $215 price level (price congestion support). Second support is at $207 representing a convergence of a 50-period exponential moving average (EMA) and a 200-day simple moving average (SMA), where the price has stopped many times. The limit level on the downside is $202.5, where the 100-period SMA is located protecting the current bullish scenario. The MACD at 240-minutes shows a similar profile as the BTC/USD. A fully bullish profile is already at the advanced stage that may lead to the emergence of a consolidation phase towards the end of the week. The DMI at 240-minutes shows less strength than the Bitcoin. The fact that the Ethereum has done better than the Bitcoin in the previous sessions makes it rather an exhaustion scenario in the short term. XRP/USD 240-Min The XRP/USD is currently trading at the $0.533 price level after two attempts to break above the $0.548 price level. At this time there are weak sales in the Ripple, although I don’t expect the price drops to be significant. Above the current price, the first resistance lies at the already mentioned level of $0.548 (price congestion resistance). The second resistance is at $0.583 from where it would be easy for the Ripple to reach unhindered the third resistance level at $0.60. Below the current price, the first reliable support at the $0.505 price level (price congestion support). The second support level is already below $0.50, exactly at $0.475 where the bullish trend line governing the XRP/USD passes since July. The MACD at 240-minutes shows a horizontal profile that reflects the current weakness. The amplitude between the lines allows thinking that the weakness is temporary and that the XRP/USD will resume the bullish movement afterward. The DMI at 240-minutes shows bulls being well above the bears. If the ETH/USD shows exhaustion after leading the market up a couple of days, the case of the XRP/USD is much clearer. The ADX is at very high levels and it wouldn’t hurt to reach lower levels so that the bulls could cross up again. Featured image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Altcoins Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USDT Smashes Out of Wedge, but Saved by Critical Demand Zone Published 9 hours ago on November 14, 2018 By Ken Chigbo ADA/USDT testing a huge area of demand and a breach by the bears could be catastrophic. Cardano Foundation confirm reshuffle, as Michael Parsons, the former chairman, steps down. ADA/USDT has continued to be victim of downside pressure after its latest bull run. The price had gained a chunky 20%, between 31st October and 6th November. ADA/USDT managed to peak just above $0.08200 territory. This was the highest level seen since 15th October. Shortly after, gradual selling started to take place, to then see all the gains plus much more taken by the heavy bears. It appears current bull runs are not sustainable, very much vulnerable to being sold- particularly as these tend to happen in an explosive manner within a short time frame. Cardano News Flow Cardano this week made an announcement that Michael Parsons, the former chairman, has resigned from his position at the Cardano Foundation. Prior to this rapid departure, there had been much history of community members demanding for him to be removed. The position will be filled by the Council Member Pascal Schmid, a University of St. Gallen graduate and a financial expert. Cardano’s creator, Charles Hoskinson, accused the foundation and Parsons of neglecting their duties, in addition to bringing in close friends and family into top positions within the organization. Technical Review – ADA/USDT ADA/USDT daily chart ADA/USDT is running at three consecutive sessions in the red- a move which is inline with the broader market, a mass cooling across all major cryptocurrencies. The price was forced to drop a hefty 13% in the late part of the session on Wednesday. Price action was initially moving within a wedge pattern. This had been the case since the back end of September. ADA/USDT was contained within this formation. Given the noted heavy selling pressure that was seen across the market late Wednesday, the lower trend line of the wedge was forced to give way to sellers. Looking to the downside, ADA/USDT has been saved from further declines thanks to a critical demand zone. The area is seen tracking from $0.07000 down to $0.06000. It has proven to see strong buyers swoop in. The price last traded down here between 12-18th September. Buyers kicked in to then drive ADA/USDT to the north, seeing gains just shy of some 50%. The bulls were able to run the price up to $0.09500 into a known supply area. A peak was seen, and this rally was then gradually sold. Should the above-mentioned demand area fail to hold and see a daily close below, it could be catastrophic. A development such as described, could leave the door wide open to a fresh wave of heavy selling. Disclaimer: The author owns bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies.

The progress in the Brexit negotiations and the liquidation event in crude oil were making headlines today, although the advance in the Pound stalled, as equity markets and in general risk assets are still under clear selling pressure following the turmoil in October. The second half of the week will likely see strong moves across asset classes, and given the negative technicals, odds favor a risk-off shift globally. EUR/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis The Dollar is consolidation after its move to new 16-months highs on Monday, and for now, the currency failed to confirm the break-out, at least as measured by the Dollar index. The EUR/USD is showing a slightly different picture compared to the broader measure, and the common currency is still in a steep downtrend, even as it is back near the key 1.13 level, retracing a large chunk of Monday’s move. A durable recovery above 1.13 could signal a failed break-down and another consolidation phase in the pair, with the long-term momentum indicators still being oversold, but the broad downtrend is clearly intact, and long positions should only be considered as short-term trades. Nasdaq 100 Futures, 4-Hour Chart Analysis In equities, we continue to see bearish technicals from a broader perspective, and although the post-Fed selloff halted, for now, the re-test of the October lows still seems likely in the coming weeks. The Nasdaq is still relatively weak compared to the other major US benchmarks, and the tech benchmark is the closest to its lows, even after yesterday’s bounce. The overnight session saw a slight bullish bias in stocks, with the indices holding on to above their weekly lows, but we still view the short-term rally attempts as selling opportunities given the hostile technicals across the globe. Crude Oil in Turmoil as Copper Holds Support, For Now WTI Crude Oil, 4-Hour Chart Analysis The bounce that we have been expecting in crude oil didn’t materialize despite the deeply oversold momentum readings, as the dip below the $58-$60 zone triggered a liquidation event in the commodity. The worst day for oil in 3 years saw the WTI contract falling below $55 per barrel, its lowest level in a year. Today, oil is attempting a recovery, and we continue to expect a rally up to the $63-$65 zone in the coming weeks. Copper Futures, 4-Hour Chart Analysis Elsewhere in the commodity segment, we are seeing further signs of weakness, despite the pullback in the Dollar. Gold is having a flat quiet day, so far, hovering near the $1200 price level, while despite the renewed trade-deal optimism, copper failed to bounce higher substantially amid the slight risk-on shift. The industrial metal is trading just above its recent swing low, and a move below that would be a sign that the lengthy consolidation phase is ending and the broader downtrend is about to resume.

Continue Reading Analysis EOS Update: Preparing for a Big Bullish Move Published 13 hours ago on November 14, 2018 By Kiril Nikolaev, CFA EOS has been stuck in a range since August 8, 2018. It’s been trading between $6.65 and $4.50 with a midpoint of $5.30. If you’re a day trader, the range is wide enough to exploit and generate serious profits. However, this is not the case for many retail investors who bought the bottom and are anticipating the next big rally. They’d want to know when EOS (EOS/USD) would make another substantial move. The good news is we are certain that it’s soon, very likely within a month. The next question would be the direction. This is something we’ll never be 100% certain of. However, we looked at the charts and we’re confident that this move will usher in a new higher high. In this article, we reveal how this coin is preparing for a big bullish move. Unnerving Lack of Volatility EOS has been slowly flatlining since September 2018. The trading range has become tighter and tighter with each passing week. You can see the almost non-existent volatility in the weekly RSI. The indicator has moved within a three-point range (42 – 45) in the last two months. Weekly RSI range In addition to the weekly RSI, the daily trading range has been suffocating. The last time Bollinger bands were this tight was about a year ago. It was at the point before EOS launched a massive bull run. Daily Chart Before you get excited, we have to be clear that narrow trading ranges do not necessarily foretell a bull run. However, it is a prelude to a big move. It is the proverbial calm before the storm. The storm, we believe, will nourish the bellies of starving bulls. Alleviating Resistance to Support (RS) Flip EOS has a diagonal trendline that cuts through both the bull and bear runs. The trendline started to exist on January 20, 2018 when it acted as resistance and prevented the market from going above $15.75. The first RS flip happened on April 24 when EOS breached resistance of $12.00. This helped the market climb to $23.029 on April 29. The diagonal trendline continued to serve as a support for EOS until June 22 when the market breached support of $9.50. This effectively flipped the support into resistance. EOS worked very hard to take back the diagonal trendline but to no avail. As a result, the market dropped to lows of $4.1778. Diagonal trendline The price action described above illustrates the impact of this trendline. It provides massive resistance when the market is below it. On the other hand, it offers firm support when EOS traded above it. Thus, the market would have been in a bad shape now if bulls would not have put up a strong fight. Luckily, they did. With a series of higher lows, bulls eventually flipped the resistance into support on September 27. They also completed the retest when EOS dropped to $5.0014 on October 11. This tells us that bulls are mobilizing. It looks like they are quietly and patiently accumulating at these levels. Promising Inverted EOS Chart If you’re having trouble believing that EOS is starting to look bullish, then allow us to present to you the inverted chart. One look and you’ll know that this chart is prime for massive shorting. Inverted weekly chart This inverted chart looks like it already topped out. It tried really hard to take out resistance of $3.50 but it failed again and again. Its inability to breach the resistance led to exhaustion. You can see the rally fading in the declining volume. The market persistently rose even if volume steadily decreased. This is not a sustainable ascent. As a result, the market appears to have broken down of an ascending triangle pattern. It is currently retesting the resistance but without volume, it is likely that the market will resume its descent. When it does, EOS will make its big move. Bottom Line With volatility almost non-existent, EOS appears to be preparing for a massive move. While this is something we are certain of, the direction is still not guaranteed. However, the recent RS flip of the diagonal downtrend and the inverted weekly chart make us believe that EOS is gearing up for a big bullish move.
