Trade Recommendation: Cardano/Ethereum

Our trade recommendation for the Cardano/Ethereum (ADA/ETH) pair on June 24, 2018 achieved its target in less than a month. ADA/ETH climbed as high as 0.00039879 on July 19. Those who followed the recommendation grew their investments by around 30%.

As expected, ADA/ETH pulled back after the short rally. We believed it was due for one more leg down before it could launch a bull run. So far, ADA/ETH is following the script.

Technical analysis show that ADA/ETH is about to break out of a large symmetrical triangle pattern on the daily chart. This view comes after the pair completed the five waves of the triangle. Currently, ADA/ETH is trading at the apex of the triangle and near the resistance. Bears are working hard to keep market control but it’s just a matter of time before bulls run them over.

That’s because the daily RSI is about to explode as well. If bulls continue to respect the RSI support, then that should trigger a break out in momentum, volume, and price.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.00034 after ADA/ETH generates volume of 30 million Cardano units. Overall altcoin sentiment remains bearish, which is why many are still shorting the market. ADA/ETH needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

A convincing breakout may take the market to our target of 0.00057. The process may take a month.
