Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

Bitcoin’s corrective phase that started on December 17, 2017 maybe getting some relief today. As the market went as low as 9,222 on January 17, bulls stepped in to prevent further damage. On that day, the market closed at 11,191.35, and the price action created a long wick below the daily candle’s body producing a candlestick pattern known as the hammer. The hammer is a bullish reversal indicator which hints that market participants are ready to buy at current levels. Yesterday and today’s candlesticks support that assumption.

Technical analysis of bitcoin’s hourly chart reveal that the cryptocurrency has bottomed out at 9,500. More importantly, the market generated a bullish higher low set up at 10,730, which was used to propel prices above 12,000. While the bears defended that level, the market managed to create another higher low at 11,080. Now, we have a bullish pattern that relies on the breach of resistance at 12,000 to restart momentum.

The strategy is to wait for the market to take out 12,000 with more than 4,000 in bitcoin volume. Those who bought at the bottom are likely to dump their shares at 12,000. The market needs new buyers to absorb the selling pressure. Once 12,000 is taken out, we have a target of 14,500.

Trade Recommendation: Storj

Published

on

Storj/Bitcoin (STORJ/BTC) has been making some serious bullish moves. On September 19, 2018, the market broke out of a large descending channel on the daily chart with good volume. This sparked a rally to 4,695 satoshis on the same day.

As the rally faded, Storj pulled back to 3,791 satoshis and flipped the descending channel resistance into support on September 26. The successful retest launched a strong rally that triggered the break out from the inverse head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart. At this point, we can say that Storj has reversed its trend. Now, we look to buy the breakout.

Technical analysis shows that STORJ/BTC is retesting support of 4,750 satoshis. So far, bulls are defending the support and we believe that they will continue to do so.

First, RSI support of 45 RSI appears to be holding up. With this development, the RSI has managed to create a second higher low in two months.

Also, many bottom pickers and breakout traders have taken profits during the rally to 6,662 satoshis on October 31. This heavy volume rally eliminated a lot of sellers. You can see this in the declining volume after the October 31 spurt. With the market’s bullish sentiment, the limited supply might inspire another rally.

The strategy is to buy the retest of support as close as 4,750 satoshis as possible. As long as bulls keep this support, they are likely to launch a rally to our target of 7,000 satoshis.

The process may take more than a month.

Stop: 4,578 satoshis.

Trade Recommendation: Basic Attention Token

Published

on

The Basic Attention Token/US Dollar (BAT/USD) pair climbed as high as $0.3877 on November 8, 2018. This move was fueled by the anticipation associated with the market’s Coinbase listing. Many market participants believed that Basic Attention Token would pump after getting listed on the exchange. This logic is sound but the market is highly illogical so it moved in an unexpected manner.

BAT was a sell on news as it dumped 28% overnight after the Coinbase listing. It has been dumping in the last few days but it looks like the end is in sight.

Technical analysis shows that Basic Attention Token is en route down to support of $0.2375. We are confident that this area will hold for several reasons.

First, the market’s dump is so steep. It happened with very little consolidation and almost no pullbacks. This is not sustainable. It’s only a matter of time before bears face exhaustion.

On top of that, we looked at the 4H RSI and saw that it is resting above support of 32. The indicator is in near oversold territory. This tells us that bears cannot keep up this rampage for long.

Lastly, volume has been declining since the November 8 dump. This is another indication of bearish exhaustion. Without volume, bears will not have the strength to take out support of $0.2375.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to $0.2375 support as possible. If bulls hold this support, the market will likely consolidate for a bit before bouncing to our target of $0.30.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Ripple

Published

on

Ripple (XRP/USD) has been the strongest big cap cryptocurrency lately. Even if Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD) made some big moves last week, Ripple kept in pace as it made breakouts of its own. On November 6, 2018, XRP/USD took out resistance of $0.50 and climbed as high as $0.562.

This was an important breach as $0.50 used to be the market’s parabolic support. Ripple skyrocketed on December 14, 2017, when it went above $0.50. It was flipped into a key resistance on June 22, 2018, during the height of the bear market. XRP/USD has been trying ever since to take it back for good. Today might be the day it does so.

Technical analysis shows that Ripple is currently retesting support of $0.50. We believe that bulls will hold for the following reasons.

First and most important, the 200-day moving average (MA) just crawled below the daily candle. This is a huge development. Moving averages act as supports or resistances depending on whether they’re below or above the candle. So instead of looking up and finding strong resistance in the 200-day MA, it is under the daily candle, giving it a very nice boost.

In addition, $0.50 is a key psychological level. If the market is above it, it becomes a demand zone. On the other hand, if Ripple is below it, it becomes a supply area. Right now, Ripple is around that level.

Almost no one’s selling at these levels because participants know it is a buy zone. With no one selling, positions are scarce, hence the low volume.

The strategy is to buy at the current price of just under $0.50. If Ripple successfully completes the retest, the market will likely break out of the triangle and rally to our target of $0.70

The process may take a month.
