Trade Recommendation: Cardano/Bitcoin

The Cardano/Bitcoin (ADA/BTC) pair started its bull run on December 29, 2017 when it took out resistance of 0.00003. Even without a solid base below 0.00003, the pair managed to gather sufficient momentum to sustain its ascent to 0.00008788 on January 4, 2018. In less than a week, the pair grew by almost 192%. Those who bought the breakout were ecstatic to take profits.

As selling became the theme, the pair plunged to 0.00004412 on January 11. Bottom fishers stepped in to buy the dip and helped push the market to 0.00006881 on January 13.

Market participants, however, saw the rally as a lower high. Many began to dump positions in order to preserve their capital. As a result, ADA/BTC generated a series of lower highs and lower lows until it bottomed out at 0.00001666 on March 18. The pair has been rallying since, and it appears ready to launch another bull run.

Technical analysis show that Cardano/Bitcoin has taken out resistance of 0.00003 on April 16 with extremely heavy volume. It went as high as 0.00003493 on April 20, but at this level, the market was in overbought territory. Bottom pickers are now taking profits to help shred overbought readings. This can be your opportunity to enter the market.

The strategy is to wait for the dip and buy as close to 0.00003 as possible. If bulls hold on to this support, they will likely create a base before moving to our target of 0.00004.

The process may take less than month.
