Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

This is a short term Bitcoin rally trade off the support that has settled in over the last day and a half. We have volatility back for the time being and we will not want to risk a lot here given the price pressure. But with the rules of the system using the time factor we can dip our toe in the warming water and see if we can grab some relief rally profits.

The time factor has to do with the market price trading at a certain level for a reasonable period of time to confirm that the price will continue to move in the stated direction. This is what the ‘A’ up line indicates and represents a volatitiy measurement of BTCUSDT. Given the volatility factor for Bitcoin we will want to see the price trade at or above 6951.00 for at least 15 consectutive minutes.

Use your short term 5 minute charts to confirm this rule. As I mentioned above, we don’t want to risk too much and fortunately the other rule for this type of setup is to place the stop loss at the Opening Range low which is the lower set of white dots against the white background. This makes for a good risk reward trade.

Place the initial stop loss and profit targets stated below.

Entry Price: 6951.00
Stop Loss: 6820.00
Profit Targets: First profit target 7240.00. Second profit target 7490.00. Once price reaches first profit target bring stop loss to breakeven (entry point), then trail the stop loss 300.00 points back as price rallies to second profit target or stopped out.

Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

Litecoin (LTC/USD) is coming off lows just like many altcoins. The cryptocurrency dropped to as low as $49.33 on August 14, 2018. At that point, the plummet seemed unstoppable. It’s as if bears were determined to short the market even if it was already trading in extreme oversold territory. However, bottom pickers started to enter the market just as LTC/USD was about to breach major support levels.

Technical analysis show that LTC/USD is still trading inside a large falling wedge pattern on the daily and weekly charts, but that won’t be the case for long. The market is approaching the wedge’s apex. As it does, it is also about to hit two major support levels: the parabolic support and the long-term support.

The recent bounce is affirmed by a sudden volume surge. The volume spike may not be extreme but it’s noticeable. This tells us that bulls also see the convergence of supports and they are now buying the market.

Lastly, we can see a large bullish divergence on the daily MACD. The market continues to gather strength even as the price falls.

The strategy is to buy the retest of support as close to $50 as possible. If bulls hold $50, they will likely gather the momentum they need to break out of the falling wedge and quickly climb to our target of $80.

The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: As close to $50 as possible.

Target: $80

Stop: $48

Trade Recommendation: Ethereum

Published

on

Just like many cryptocurrencies, Ethereum (ETH/USD) is having a terrible month. Investor outlook turned bleak on August 14, 2018 when the market plummeted to $249.93. At that point, Ethereum was down over 80% from its all-time high of $1,424.30. Just as Ethereum started to look hopeless, bottom pickers emerged.

Technical analysis show that ETH/USD is at the apex of a large falling wedge on the daily and weekly charts. The drop to $249.93 was seen as a buying opportunity since bulls came in droves. You can see this in the recent volume surge. We haven’t seen this volume since May.

The increase in demand pushed the market above $285 support. This is critical as $285 is the staging ground of the rally that saw the cryptocurrency skyrocket to $1,424.30. This tells us that ETH/USD may be badly beaten but it is not yet broken.  With the market above $285 again, bulls can use it to gather momentum and break out of the falling wedge.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $325 as long as the market volume of 380,000 Ethereum is met. Those who bought the bottom might take profits at $325. ETH/USD needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Once ETH/USD takes out $325, it can climb to our target of $520. Sell immediately.

The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Breakout at $325 with volume of 380,000 Ethereum.

Target: $525

Stop: $300 after the breakout.

Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) has been on a freefall since July 24, 2018 when its dead cat bounce came to an abrupt end at a price level of $8,496.96. The “smart money” used the rally to dump positions. Even support of $7,400 could not halt the skid. By August 14, BTC was trading below $6,000 and gloom and doom forecasts of a drop to $4,000 once again dominated the conversation.

Just as the calls to short the largest cryptocurrency were becoming louder, the market rallied to $6,628.50 on August 15, obliterating many short positions in the process. It’s not easy to trade Bitcoin, but if you look closer, you can see that there’s a method to the madness. 

Technical analysis show that BTC/USD is about to break out of an inverse head and shoulders pattern on the hourly chart. This is the same pattern that Bitcoin used to spark a rally on July 18, 2018. If you’re looking for a reversal, this pattern should be your primary candidate.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $6,600 as long as the market generates volume of 500 Bitcoin units on the hourly chart. So far, the $6,600 resistance is proving to be one tough nut to crack. Bitcoin needs heavy volume to help push the price above the resistance.

Once BTC/USD takes out $6.600, it can quickly climb to our target of $7,400. Sell immediately. This might be another pump and dump rally.

The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Target: $7,400

Stop: $6,500 after the breakout.
