Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

Bitcoin (XBT/USD) is down by over 40% in less than two weeks. If you’re one of those who holds on for dear life (HODL), we imagine the last few weeks would have been extremely painful. However, now may not be the best time to capitulate. A savvy trader would start scaling in at these levels. If our analysis is correct, the largest and oldest cryptocurrency is due for a mighty bounce.

Technical analysis shows that XBT/USD is respecting the weekly support of $3,620. This weekly support is one of a kind. This is the price area where bulls staged the December 2017 parabolic run that saw the market climb to its all-time high of $19,660 on Kraken. A drop to this level tells us that all the gains and hype behind that previous run is now totally gone. This is a good thing as Bitcoin can start a new trend without the baggage of the previous mania.

Another thing that’s working for Bitcoin is that bears are extremely exhausted. The market has just completed the three drives down pattern. Over the last two weeks, Bitcoin generated two bearish flags that resulted in three big red candles (three drives down). During this move, the market had zero semblance of a pullback. This type of sharp decline is not sustainable.

Thus, we are seeing signs of extreme exhaustion. The price keeps going down but the volume has been significantly declining. More importantly, the daily RSI is in a historic oversold territory. On top of that, the weekly RSI is flashing oversold readings. These indicators tell us that Bitcoin is due for a bounce if not a total reversal.

The strategy is to buy as close to $3,620 support as possible. If the weekly support is held, then we expect the market to bounce to our initial target of $4,740. Take that out and we may see Bitcoin retest resistance of $6,000.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Republic Protocol

Published

on

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Republic Protocol (REN/BTC) since the second week of December when it showed bullish potential. It came off lows of 0.00000551 on December 7, 2018 and climbed as high as 0.00000838 on December 9. That’s an increase of over 52% in two days.

Quick rises like this usually have an effect on one’s psyche. The fear of missing out can easily draw a trader into buying the top. When you start to have this feeling, always remember that everything is subject to the laws of gravity. So instead of buying the pump, wait for the asset to dump. That’s where you can place buy orders.

REN is giving us this opportunity today.

Technical analysis shows that REN/BTC has broken out of a falling wedge on the 1-hour chart. Interestingly, the breakout was sparked by a strong bounce from support of 0.00000551. This tells us that bulls are trying to establish a bottom at this level.

The bounce, however, was met by the 100 MA, which was acting as a stiff resistance. REN has been pulling back since but this shouldn’t be a cause for concern. What we want to see happen is for REN to enter an accumulation phase near 0.00000551. If the market establishes a new base in this area, it will likely ignite another bull run.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00000551 as possible. As long as REN stays above this level, bulls have the momentum to rally to our initial target of 0.00000660. Take that out and the next target is 0.00000694.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: NXT

Published

on

While we wait for Bitcoin (BTC/USD) to bottom out, let’s continue looking for altcoins that have established a clear short-term bottom. One that fits the category is NXT (NXT/BTC). This altcoin printed new yearly lows of 0.00000742 on December 15, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by just over 85% from this year’s peak of 0.00005023.

This altcoin may look extremely bearish but it is ripe for a bounce. With the market trading close to the yearly lows, we have an opportunity to enter positions with a very favorable risk to reward ratio.

Technical analysis shows that NXT/BTC has established a short-term bottom at 0.0000075. This level may not seem important but a look at the weekly chart shows that this is the cryptocurrency’s parabolic support. The market rejected lower prices at this level in November 2017. Then, this coin used the support to launch a strong rally that sent the market to as high as 0.00014 a year ago.

Thus, the market’s ability to stay above this level is not a coincidence. This may not be the bottom or the point of reversal but we can expect NXT to give us a meaningful bounce at this point. It is also possible that this crypto will trade sideways from hereon. For now, however, we’ll just play the bounce.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0000075 support as possible. As long as bulls stay above this level, NXT will likely rally to our target of 0.00000935.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Ambrosus

Published

on

We’ve been keeping tabs on Ambrosus (AMB/BTC) since it managed to create a short-term bottom of 0.00001595 on September 12, 2018. With a bottom in place, Ambrosus had space to rally. That’s exactly what it did.

Ambrosus gathered the momentum required to climb as high as 0.00003511 on October 21. Like many of the altcoins we’ve included in our trade recommendations, Ambrosus was not yet ready to launch a bull run. So, it corrected back to range support. The market may not be bullish yet but we may have an opportunity to profit from this sideways trading.

Technical analysis shows that AMB/BTC has once again respected range low of 0.000016. The ability of Ambrosus to stay above this area tells us that the smart money is very likely to be in accumulation mode. If they are, they appear to be accumulating under favorable conditions.

A quick look at the 1-hour chart reveals that AMB/BTC is about to get an important golden cross with the 100 moving average crossing over the 200 moving average. On top of that, we can see bullish divergences on the daily chart, 12-hour chart, and 4-hour chart. These indicators tell us that Ambrosus is turning bullish.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000016 support as possible. As long as bulls stay above this level, Ambrosus will likely rally to our initial target of 0.000023. Take that out and the next target is 0.00003.

The process may take less than a month.
