Trade Recommendation: Basic Attention Token

The Basic Attention Token/Bitcoin pair (BAT/BTC) sparked its bull run on December 20, 2018 when it breached 0.000023 resistance. The force of the breakout was so strong that it catapulted the pair to as high as 0.0000667 on January 9, 2018. In less than three weeks, the pair rose by 190%. Those who bought the breakout saw the opportunity to dump positions and take profits.

As sellers dominated the market, it plunged to 0.0000357 on January 16. Even though bottom pickers bought the dip, they were only able to push the price up to 0.00005975 on January 24. The lower high snuffed out the pair’s bullish steam. From that point, BAT/BTC has been generating lower highs and lower lows until recent events.

Technical analysis show that Basic Attention Token/Bitcoin appears to be respecting 0.000023 support. Volume surged on March 15 when the pair hovered above the 0.0000023 support. In addition, bulls rushed to defend the support when BAT/BTC dropped to 0.00002125 on March 18. So far, the market has managed to stay above the support level.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000023 as possible. If bulls continue to defend the support, the market will likely consolidate at this price before it can march to our target of 0.00004. The process may take more than a month.
