Trade Recommendation: CloakCoin

The CloakCoin/Bitcoin pair (CLOAK/BTC) took out resistance of 0.0005 on October 24, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the rounding bottom pattern on the 4-hour chart. The breakout looked valid as well. On that day, CloakCoin generated volume that’s over 540% of its daily average.

The heavy volume breakout attracted traders who were on the sidelines. This sparked a rally to as high as 0.0005678 on the same day. At that point, however, the market began to show signs of weakness. First, it was trading at oversold territory on the 4H chart. In addition, CloakCoin generated a bearish divergence. These were all indications that CloakCoin was ripe for profit-taking.

With bottom-pickers and breakout traders locking in gains, the market pulled back. Nevertheless, this is an opportunity for us to buy the dip.

Technical analysis shows that CLOAK/BTC is looking to retest support of 0.0004. It appears that the market needs more time to build a base before it finally eliminates resistance of 0.0005. It is very likely that the market holds on to support of 0.0004 for these reasons.

First, the 4H RSI has been impressively generating a series of higher lows. The market will remain bullish as long as this trend continues.

In addition, volume has exponentially declined since the rally. This tells us that sellers are exhausted. They have little interest and energy to sell at the firm support area.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to 0.0004 as possible. As long as bulls hold, they will likely build the momentum necessary to annihilate 0.0005 and rally to our targets of 0.0006 and then 0.00075.

The process may take a month.
