Rising Cryptocurrency Analysis: Stratis, Siacoin, Steem, Factom, Lisk

Published

on

A new crop of rising stars seems to be appearing in the crypto-coin market on a daily basis, as ICO’s are taking place in all kinds of segments, while some of the running projects get boosted by the market on favorable news announcements or trading activity. These coins provide good opportunities for traders, but be aware, risks might also be higher, so careful with those margin accounts!

Thanks to our ICO analysis series, you can get ahead of the curve, and find the winners of the future before they even start circulating. Today, we will take a look at the five of the up and coming coins that are already out in the wild, or actually have been there for quite a while, from a trader’s perspective.

Interested in another small cap coin or coins? Let us know in the comment section, and we will post an analysis in the coming days!

Stratis

Stratis/BTC, 4-Hour

Stratis crossed the $1 billion market value recently, racing to the 7th place of the market cap list according to Coinmarketcap. If you recall it wasn’t long ago, that Ethereum crossed this mark (earlier this year), and now it is north of $25 billion. The coin has been consolidating since last week’s extraordinary rise, as we expected after running into resistance near 0.0045 on the Bitcoin pair. While the coin is not on a buy signal as of now, it should on traders’ watchlists, as a move out of the short-term pattern could trigger another leg higher in both the BTC and the USD pairas we expected after running into resistance near 0.0045 on the Bitcoin pair. While the coin is not on a buy signal as of now, it should on traders’ watchlists, as a move out of the short-term pattern could trigger another leg higher in both the BTC and the USD pair

Steem

Steem/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Steem is also right near the top 10 of the capitalization list following the break-out of a month-long consolidation just a few days ago. The coin surged above the prior high at 0.00075, and got close to 0.001 before entering a short-term correction. That said, Steem remains on a buy signal on the BTC pair, above the prior high. Although this is probably not the best point to enter an investment position, short-term traders could still ride the wave higher, despite the overbought readings on the MACD.

Siacoin

Siacoin/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Siacoin is getting close to a possible entry point near the May highs on the BTC pair. Just above the 0.0000053 level, as the current short-trm consolidation pattern carried the coin back to the strong support/resistance zone. The MACD is approaching neutral territory, and although further consolidation is possible, a move out of the correction could set a up a rally towards the prior highs and above that to the 0.00000875 level.

Factom

Factom/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Factom ran into resistance just above the 0.012 level yesterday, and it is now probably headed back to test the prior high just below the 0.010 level on the BTC pair. There is a convergence zone with the rising short-term trendline near that zone, which could provide a good entry point for short-term traders. The coin recently broke-out from a lengthy consolidation zone, which could serve as a base for further gains in the coming weeks.

Lisk

Lisk/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Lisk exploded above its prior high this week, and quickly reached the 100% Fibonacci-extension resistance. The coin pulled-back off that level, but remains well above the 0.00075 break-out level, while it’s trying to establish a swing low. We expect more consolidation before a break-out above 0.0012, but as a support zone is likely to develop near the 0.00085 Fibonacci level, short-term traders could consider new positions in anticipation  of a break-out.

Crypto Update: Worst Seems to be Over for Stellar and Cardano

Published

on

With so many cryptocurrency pairs losing as much as 90% of their value from this year’s high, it may seem that altcoins are deep in bear territory. Even if you’ve been following our bullish breakout series, the pullbacks in the last two few weeks would have made it easy for you to doubt our claims. However, we stand by our assertion that the overall crypto sentiment is slowly becoming bullish. The altcoins that we cover today serve as additional evidence.

In this article, we show how the worst appears to be over for Stellar and Cardano.

Stellar/Bitcoin Analysis

The last two weeks have been very difficult for Stellar/Bitcoin (XLM/BTC) investors. The pair appears to have breached the uptrend line when it dropped to as low as 0.00002933 on September 11, 2018. At that price level, XLM/BTC lost over 56% of its value from the 2018 high of 0.00006789.

Those who cut their losses after the pair breached the uptrend support would have been badly whipsawed. Stellar/Bitcoin eventually managed to recover the support.

Weekly chart of Stellar/Bitcoin

With the recovery of the support, the outlook is bullish for XLM/BTC. First, the false break of the support is bullish. In most cases, this can ignite a rally to the top end of the range or the resistance.

In addition, the weekly RSI appears to have broken out of its own falling wedge. This is a very good sign that bulls are gaining momentum. Keep in mind, the RSI has been trapped inside this falling wedge since April 2018.

Lastly, the recovery of the support marks the end of the E wave, which is often the last wave down. With bulls taking back the support, we have a convincing case that the worst is over for XLM/BTC.

Cardano/Bitcoin Analysis

Just like XLM/BTC, the last two weeks have also been difficult for Cardano/Bitcoin (ADA/BTC).The pair came off lows of 0.00000969 on September 12, 2018. At that point, the market was down by almost 90% from the 2018 high of 0.00008788.

To many crypto investors, ADA/BTC may be fighting to stay alive. Bears have given their best shot and it may have appeared that the market was down for the count. However, just as ADA/BTC looked hopeless, the market bounced back like a true champion.

Weekly chart of ADA/BTC

As if on cue, ADA/BTC bounced as soon as it hit the support trendline of the falling wedge. This price action emboldened bottom fishers to enter long positions. The increasing demand coupled with decreasing supply due to bearish exhaustion are creating the ideal conditions for a bullish reversal.

As of this writing, ADA/BTC is taking out resistance of 0.000011. Breach of this support will enable the market to reverse its trend and bid goodbye to bear territory.

Bottom Line

Cryptos are slowly stepping out of bear territory. The last few weeks have been difficult but overall, altcoins are becoming bullish. This seems to be the case for both XLM/BTC and ADA/BTC. The worst appears to be over for the two altcoin pairs as they prepare to finally reverse their trend.

Ethereum Making a Decision Where to Go

Published

on

Ether is losing its value slightly today on Sep 19, trading at around $207.98. Losing 0.25% on Wednesday is not that surprising after a very hard Monday (although Tuesday was neutral). The crypto was above $210 when the session started, but then failed to stay near the local highs, says Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboForex.

On H1, the bearish trendline is at $216, which is confirmed on D1. The resistance levels at $216 and $220 are strong, and they must be broken out in order to go up or at least pull back upwards.

In case Ether fails to find any drivers, it will likely consolidate at around $205. This is exactly where the key support lies, while the resistance is at $216, as mentioned above.

The MACD is negative on D1, moving along the signal line, still giving a moderate buy signal, while the Stochastic is not going anywhere and is not issuing any signal, while being in the positives.

Lately, Ether is very much volatile, with no certain direction. Last week the cryptocurrency spiked 32%, but early this week it reverted and started falling. Ether is vulnerable to the general negative sentiment in the crypto market, although the inside news influence it, too.

People are waiting for the Constantinople update, as well as for the introduction of Ether futures on CBOE which should take place before the end of the year. Meanwhile, low activity in ICOs does no good to Ether’s price either.

Recently, news has come that the Ethereum network reduced its reward for mined blocks, from 3 to 2 ETH. This nearly equals the profits of Ether and Bitcoin miners, so some ETH miners are sure to switch to Bitcoin after this happened, especially those that are unable to cover their costs and expenses (and there are quite a few).

The only positive piece of news now is the pending payment option in MyCrypto wallet designed by Ethereum. This option enables scheduling the payment date and time, which simplifies matters when it comes to recurring payments, such as subscriptions.

Crypto Update: Market Remains Weak Despite Ripple’s Surge

Published

on

Ripple made headlines today in the cryptocurrency segment, as the third largest coin jumped by more than 15% after trading in a narrow range for several days. Most of the major coins joined the rally, but the gains were muted and the technical setup remained unchanged in most cases, with the long-term outlook still being bearish, while the short-term picture remaining mixed.

Ethereum, which has been in the center of the trends in the segment for weeks rallied back above $200, but stayed below the recent swing high, leaving several questions unanswered concerning the short-term trend. Bitcoin also got stuck near the $6275 level yet again, and the total value of the market is still below the $200 billion mark, with still no clear signs of major capital inflows in the segment.

ETH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Ethereum quickly recovered above $200 after dipping below the weekend lows yesterday in late trading, retaining the short-term buy signal in our trend model. That said the coin still needs to show stronger bullish momentum to avoid a resumption of the clearly declining long-term trend. As sustained dip below $200 would still warn of a move to last week’s lows, while a move above $235 would open up the way towards $260 and the confluence resistance near $275.

BTC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Bitcoin has been showing weakness in the last couple of days, and although the coin is still on a short-term buy signal, similarly to Ethereum, a quick recovery above $6500 would be needed to avoid a bearish turn.

Traders should hold on to their positions here, but given the still bearish segment-wide trends, we still don’t advise full positions even in the stronger coins. Below $6275, weaker support is found at $6000, close to the key long-term zone near $5850, while resistance is ahead at $6500, $6750, and $7000.

Ripple Needs Follow Through For a Buy Signal

XRP/USDT, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

While today’s spike in Ripple is encouraging, the coin needs to show further signs of strength, as the recent sudden spikes in the majors were quickly sold as the bearish trend remained dominant in the segment.

With that in mind, despite the broken resistance levels, XRP remains on a neutral short-term signal in our trend model, while still being bearish from a long-term perspective. The coin is currently trading right at the $0.32 level, with support found at $0.3130, $0.30 and near $0.30, while strong resistance is ahead at $0.35.

DASH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Dash is among the stronger coins from a short-term technical standpoint, trading in a bullish consolidation pattern just below the key $200 level. That said, the coin failed to show strength today amid Ripple’s rally, and that still points to a dominant bearish trend in the segment. With that in mind, traders should wait for further positive signs before entering new positions, especially since a bullish leadership still hasn’t developed.

IOT/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

IOTA is still weaker than average, together with NEO, EOS, and ETC, and the coin is still just above the August lows, clearly being in a broad downtrend, despite holding up above the lower boundary of its short-term range. A test of the lows is likely in the coming weeks, and the coin remains on sell signals on both time-frames, with support found between $0.455 and $0.475, and near $0.405, and with key resistance ahead near $0.57 and $0.64.
