Trade Recommendation: Aeternity

The Aeternity/Bitcoin (AE/BTC) pair surprised investors when it went as high as 0.0006333 on April 29, 2018. Before that move, AE/BTC was trading at a low of 0.000159 on March 18. This means that those who bought at the low grew their investments by over 300% in less than a month.

Unfortunately for buyers at 0.0006333, participants exploited the pump. The market has been dropping since. Nevertheless, it appears that AE/BTC is ready for bottom picking.

Technical analysis show that AE/BTC is trading inside a large falling wedge. The pattern is about to hit the apex just as it is about to touch the line in the sand of 0.000165 support.

Call it coincidence, market psychology, or manipulation. What’s important is that we know that 0.000165 is an area where demand exceeds supply. This is the staging ground that kickstarted the bull run earlier this year when the market surged to 0.0006333. This tells us that the “smart money” likes to buy at this price level.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000165 support as possible. If our assumption is true, then the “smart money” or the “whales” will start buying at this level. They will also defend on the support to protect their positions. This should spark a rally to our initial target of 0.0002532.

The process can take less than one month.
