Trade Recommendation: Basic Attention Token

We’ve been watching Basic Attention Token (BAT/USD) for a few days now. With its BAT/BTC counterpart aiming for all-time highs, we knew that BAT/USD is also bound to turn bullish. A quick look at the daily chart affirms our bias.

Technical analysis shows that BAT/USD has breached two resistances when it went above $0.22 on March 26. The first resistance taken out that day was the diagonal resistance. This was an important breach because the diagonal resistance has kept the market bearish for over a year. Bears relied on the resistance to generate one lower high after another. With that out of the way, Basic Attention Token is free to print its first higher high in a year.

The second resistance was the horizontal resistance. Breach of this level triggered the breakout from the rounding bottom pattern on the daily chart.

With two resistances gone, BAT/USD ignited a strong rally to $0.31395 on March 29. At that point, however, the market was massively overbought. Thus, a pullback was in order to enable technical indicators to cool off. This is where we can bottom pick the market.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to $0.22 as possible. If bulls manage to hold this level, Basic Attention Token may rally to our targets of $0.3117 and $0.39.

The process may take less than a month.
