Trade Recommendation: ChainLink/Bitcoin

The ChainLink/Bitcoin (LINK/BTC) pair lost all bullishness on October 12, 2017 when it generated a lower high of 0.00009850. On the next day, the market broke support at 0.00008, which triggered the downtrend. From then on, the market created consecutive lower lows and lower highs. It took the pair exactly two months to find the bottom at 0.00001 on December 12.  

Since the market lost 89.85% of its value, it rallied quickly after bottoming out. It went as high as 0.00009499 on January 9, 2018 before succumbing to profit taking. The market went as low as 0.00004 on January 17, before bulls rushed to absorb the selling pressure, and sent the market up to 0.00006288. With a lower high in place, LINK/BTC rallied to as high as 0.0000985 on January 21. While the market dipped again, it is your chance to enter at a favorable price point.

Technical analysis show that the LINK/BTC pair is creating a bullish higher low setup at 0.00005. In addition, volume for the last two weeks has been on a steady decline. This indicates that sellers are about to lose ammunition.   

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00005 support as possible. For this play, we will trade the range to generate profits. The top end of the range and our target is resistance at 0.00008. The march up to the resistance level may take one month.
