Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

The Bitcoin/US Dollar pair has been bearish since it generated a lower high of $17,178 on January 5, 2018. That means that the pair has been in bear territory for six months now. Recently, it recorded a new 2018 low of $5,777.00 and broke the $6,000 long term support. This triggered numerous stop losses. Predictions for a move down to $3,000 levels reverberated all over the internet.

Along with these doom and gloom forecasts were articles preaching that Bitcoin is dead. It appears that fear has gripped the market as blood ran on the streets and for good reason. Bitcoin lost over 70% of its value from its peak of $19891.99. However, experience has shown me time and time again that a bottom is in place when participants have lost all hope in the market. We have technicals on our side to support this view.

Technical analysis show that BTC/USD is currently carving a bottom at $5,800 – $6,000. As you can see on the chart below, the pair has created three falling wedges inside one large falling wedge. Three is the key number here because bear or bull runs often come to an end after three pushes. If you can zoom in on the most recent wedge, you will see that BTC/USD has formed three bearish pennants. Exhaustion is usually the case after the third push.

Also, indicators are flashing bullish signals. We can see bullish divergence on the RSI and MACD. Consider these signals and it is not farfetched to think that the move below $6,000 is a false breakout.

The strategy is to buy as close to the retest of $5,800 as possible. If bulls succeed on defending the support, it will be the start of an aggressive bull run that will initially take the pair to our target of $8,000.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: CloakCoin

Published

on

The CloakCoin/Bitcoin pair (CLOAK/BTC) took out resistance of 0.0005 on October 24, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the rounding bottom pattern on the 4-hour chart. The breakout looked valid as well. On that day, CloakCoin generated volume that’s over 540% of its daily average.

The heavy volume breakout attracted traders who were on the sidelines. This sparked a rally to as high as 0.0005678 on the same day. At that point, however, the market began to show signs of weakness. First, it was trading at oversold territory on the 4H chart. In addition, CloakCoin generated a bearish divergence. These were all indications that CloakCoin was ripe for profit-taking.

With bottom-pickers and breakout traders locking in gains, the market pulled back. Nevertheless, this is an opportunity for us to buy the dip.

Technical analysis shows that CLOAK/BTC is looking to retest support of 0.0004. It appears that the market needs more time to build a base before it finally eliminates resistance of 0.0005. It is very likely that the market holds on to support of 0.0004 for these reasons.

First, the 4H RSI has been impressively generating a series of higher lows. The market will remain bullish as long as this trend continues.

In addition, volume has exponentially declined since the rally. This tells us that sellers are exhausted. They have little interest and energy to sell at the firm support area.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to 0.0004 as possible. As long as bulls hold, they will likely build the momentum necessary to annihilate 0.0005 and rally to our targets of 0.0006 and then 0.00075.

The process may take a month.

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.

Summary of Strategy

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.
