Trade Recommendation: BlackCoin/Monero

Published

on

On April 19, 2017, the BlackCoin/Monero pair started its bullish run after breaching resistance of 0.0045. Those who bought at this level made a killing as the market climbed to as high as 0.02040111 on June 22. That’s a 350.4% increase in two months. On the same day, however, the market closed at 0.00951392.

The price action created a long wick above the body of the daily candle which means heavy selling pressure. The same pattern was witnessed on June 23, which signalled the end of the market’s bull run.

Since then, the market created one lower high after another. It took six months for the pair to find the bottom. On December 12, the market found support at 0.001, and when it did, it bounced with a vengeance. A couple of weeks later, it pierced resistance at 0.002. However, bears defended that level and sent the market back down to 0.0017 support.

This dip is healthy as it welcomes new buyers who are more likely to sell above 0.002. This is your opportunity to enter the market and buy cheap.

Technical analysis reveal that the market is forming a bullish higher low at 0.0017 support. The  recent bounce at this level shows that bulls are defending this area. In addition, RSI seems to respect support at 41.

Now, the strategy is to buy as close to 0.0017 support as possible. This is a bounce play so the target is the top end of the range at 0.0028.

    Oddball trading pairs like this have no value for me. I’m only really interested in pairs involving BTC, ETH and NEO.

Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin Gold

Published

on

The Bitcoin Gold/Bitcoin pair (BTG/BTC) took out resistance of 0.0045 on November 4, 2018. The breach triggered the breakout from the inverse head and shoulders pattern on the 4-hour chart. Also, the breakout looked valid as Bitcoin Gold had a volume buzz that’s over 410% of its daily average.

The bullish price action attracted traders and investors that were observing the pair on the sidelines. This generated a strong rally to as high as 0.005479 on November 7. At that price, Bitcoin Gold showed signs of weakness. The 4H candle created a long wick on top of its body suggesting the presence of sellers. In addition, a bearish divergence was spotted on the 4H RSI.

These indicators sparked more profit-taking. To make matters worse, the November 14 crypto carnage increased the selling pressure further. As a result, Bitcoin Gold breached support of 0.0045 and dropped to as low as 0.004281 on November 14. However, even in the midst of bearish rampage, Bitcoin Gold continued to show immense strength.

Technical analysis shows that BTG/BTC has managed to reclaim support of 0.0045. With this price movement, the dump below that level appears to be a bear trap. This ignited a rally to 0.005099 today, November 19. It retraced a bit since, but this presents an opportunity.

If Bitcoin Gold wants to keep its bullish trend, it needs to preserve support 0.0045. This would confirm the bear trap and will likely propel the market to the top end of the range.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to 0.0045 as possible. If bulls defend the support, then we can expect BTG/BTC to rally to our target of 0.0055. The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Haven Protocol

Published

on

We’ve been following Haven Protocol (XHV/BTC) from some time now, after we saw its bullish potential. It skyrocketed from 0.0001371 on October 12 to as high as 0.00056 on November 12, 2018. In as little as one month, Haven Protocol grew by over 308%.

Though we were tempted to recommend long positions during this meteoric rise, we knew better than to chase an incredibly bullish altcoin. We’d rather wait for a price level that offers a very good risk to reward ratio. Good thing we did because XHV/BTC breached support of 0.000417 on November 15. This triggered the head and shoulders reversal pattern on the 4-hour chart.

With this price action, Haven Protocol is officially in a downtrend. However, there’s a good trade opportunity that’s presenting itself.

Technical analysis shows that XHV/BTC is fighting hard to protect support of 0.00034. Bulls must defend this level at all costs to keep the market from becoming extremely bearish. If Haven Protocol breaks this level, it might trigger a waterfall event that can send the market to the ultimate target of the head and shoulders pattern of 0.000295.  

We believe that bulls have a great chance of holding this support for several reasons. First, volume is starting to pick up. If bulls want to keep market control, buyers must show up. Otherwise, many participants might get jittery and close their positions and thus increase selling pressure. So, watch out for volume.

Next, the 4H RSI appears to be respecting support of 35. The market has never given up this support ever since climbing above it on October 15. Therefore, we can expect bulls to gather significant momentum at this level.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00034 as possible. As long as the market is above this level, it has the momentum to rally to our target of 0.000417. Take that out and the next target is 0.000489.

The process may take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Steem

Published

on

An extended bear market may be upon us as altcoins either create new yearly lows or revisit historical support areas. While the prolonged downtrend can be difficult to trade, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there are no profitable trade opportunities. In fact, we’re seeing a promising setup now in Steem/Bitcoin (STEEM/BTC).

Steem broke support of 0.00012 on November 9, 2018. Bulls tried to reclaim the support on the next day but to no avail. Their inability to take back 0.00012 effectively flipped the support into resistance. When participants saw this, they raced to cut their losses. This triggered a waterfall event that saw this coin breach 0.00011 support like a hot knife slicing through butter.

The good news is that this panic selling has created conditions that are ideal for a range trade.

Technical analysis shows that STEEM/BTC is managing to stay above historical support of 0.0001. Now, we are seeing many altcoins hold on to their historical support. What makes Steem unique is the huge volume it generated on November 16. On that day, the market had a volume buzz that’s over 100% of its daily average. With such huge volume, this crypto rallied to as high as 0.0001176 on the same day.

The rally is a dead-cat bounce or the B-leg of an ABC corrective wave. The C-leg should drive the pair down to 0.0001 support at which point Steem will likely range trade between 0.0001 and 0.00012.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to 0.0001 support as possible. If STEEM/BTC holds on to the support, the market will trade sideways for some time before it can make another big move. Nevertheless, the sideways trading should give us the chance to buy low at the support and sell high at 0.00012.

The process may take more than a month.
