Trade Recommendation: Brent Crude Oil

Published

on

The Brent Crude Oil/US Dollar pair (BCO/USD) began to look bearish in February 2013 when it posted a lower high of 119.345. This snuffed out the market’s bullish steam. Those who saw the writing on the wall dumped positions to protect their capital. As the commodity succumbed to selling pressure, it broke support of 100 in September 2014.

The break below the support triggered the descending triangle pattern on the monthly chart. This ignited a selling frenzy that drove the pair down to 27.345 in January 2016.

At this price level, BCO/USD flashed reversal signals. First, we can see that the monthly candle had a long wick below its body. This indicated that bulls were starting to show up. In addition, the 4-day, 9-day, and 21-day moving averages were all detached from the candle. This was a signal that the move down cannot be sustained.

With a bottom in place, more bottom fishers entered the buying picture. The increased buying sparked a furious rally, one that we can take advantage of.

Technical analysis show that the Brent Crude Oil/US Dollar pair has taken out resistance of 70 in March 2018. This activated the large inverse head and shoulders reversal pattern on the weekly chart. The breakout was affirmed by a move up to 80.816 in May 2018. While the commodity has been correcting since, this is your chance to buy the dip.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to 70 as possible. As long as bulls stay above this level, they have all the bullish momentum they need to climb to our target of 100.

The process may take more than six months.

Trade Recommendation: NEO/Ethereum

Published

on

The NEO/Ethereum (NEO/ETH) pair took out resistance of 0.07 on August 31, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The price action attracted breakout players and momentum traders who helped push the pair to as high as 0.099934 on September 12.

Although we missed the breakout rally, we’re confident that we’ll be able to buy the dip. After all, NEO/ETH was already trading at extreme overbought territory. It would be foolish to chase a flying altcoin. We’d rather wait for the pullback and see how the market plans to resume its uptrend. It looks like we’re getting the go signal.

Technical analysis shows that NEO/ETH has just taken out resistance of 0.08. This enabled the pair to break out of the bullish pennant on the daily chart. The breakout looks convincing because of serious volume. On October 18, the market breached the resistance with volume that’s over 180% of its average.

In addition, the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day moving averages are all lining up below the candles. This is an uncommon alignment indicating that the uptrend is strong and healthy.

The strategy is to buy the retest of breakout as close to 0.08 as possible. As long as the market stays above this level, it has all the momentum it needs to rally to our target of 0.115. The process may take a month.

As of this writing, the NEO/ETH pair is trading at 0.081214 on Binance.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: As close to 0.08 as possible.

Target: 0.115

Stop: 0.076

Trade Recommendation: Stellar

Published

on

Our July 10 trade recommendation for Stellar (XLM/USD) hit its target on July 17 when it went as high as $0.2564. Those who followed the trade suggestion grew their investments by over 40% in one week.

While Stellar overshot our target price and climbed as high as $0.352 on July 25, we were satisfied not to chase the rally. At that point, the market was trading in overbought territory. In addition, it was flashing a bearish divergence. We’re happy to wait for the dip to get our next chance to buy. It looks like that opportunity is presenting itself.

Technical analysis shows that XLM/USD is poised to breach resistance of $0.255. This would trigger the breakout from the large symmetrical triangle on the daily chart. Stellar has been trading inside this pattern since May 2018. A clear breakout should generate a lot of bullish momentum.

Also, the daily RSI is in great shape. It just bounced off support of 37 after flashing overbought readings on September 23. This tells us that the RSI has cooled off so it has the room to accommodate a monster rally.

Last, we’ve been hearing rumors that Coinbase might potentially add Stellar to its exchange. This type of development could help ignite a breakout.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $0.255 after the market generates volume of at least 2.5 million Stellar units. The market is up against a long-term resistance area. In other words, you can expect heavy selling at $0.255. Stellar needs buyers to alleviate the selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the market will likely have the momentum to rally to our target of $0.35 first and then $0.45. The process may take more than a month.

Target: $0.35 first and then $0.45.

Stop: $0.24 after the breakout.

Trade Recommendation: WAX

Published

on

WAX is the #92 ranked cryptocurrency with a market cap of $64 million. Over the past several months, WAX token has crashed harder than most the other top 100 tokens. This is mostly do to news way back in June of Valve, the developer of the popular game Counter-Strike; Global Offensive (CS;GO), sending a cease and desist order to OP Skins. OP Skins responded by saying, “The future of digital item trading is instant, free, and peer-to-peer. Wax is being built to support a post-Valve trading economy. Valves’ decision was not unexpected, one company cannot kill the digital item trading industry.”

There are over 80 employees developing the WAX ecosystem. They already came out with their own skin making platform called VGO, it’s the most used Dapp in all of crypto. Through VGO, games can create and sell their own unique items on the WAX blockchain, similar to Ethereums ERC721 protocol. These NFTs will be designed to be interchangeable in future games. The first game to use them called, The Forge Arena is already being played.

The team has formed several new partnerships including Terra Virtua, a new startup apparently some are calling the “Netflix of VR”.

Just a couple days ago they announced WAX Stickers. A promising new concept that allows creating and selling unique stickers that can be used with skins or in other forms of social media.

Upcoming Catalysts

  • WAX is partnered with Robotcache, a platform to resell your digital PC games. Instead of doing an ICO, Robotcache is raising funds privately, and in Q4 will airdrop a small percentage of their IRON tokens to WAX holders.
  • WAX platform/protocol token will be issued to all WAX holders at a 1:1 ratio in Q4. This new token will be the backbone of the ecosystem.
  • Guild creation and voting starts in Q4. Guild leaders are allowed to reward WAX holders for votes.
  • WAX is still not listed on Binance.
  • October 28-29, they will be presenting at TwitchCon
  • October 30- Nov 2, presenting at World Crypto Con. Both of these conferences are huge.
