Trade Recommendation: Ethereum

For every market route there is a silver lining. Without a market shakeout there can be no new bull market. Hence, we may be yet again at a new bottom and ready for a move up for Ethereum. The ETHUSDT coin price has developed a minor uptrend just above the Monthly Pivot level.

Currently the Daily Pivot Range is holding the price intact with support at these levels. At the time of writing the price is sitting at exactly the 3 Day Rolling Pivot level (yellow dots).

When we have a number of Pivots and Pivot Ranges in close proximity like this, I call it a Pivot Stack. This is where we see the vertical stacking of the Pivots which forms a very strong price level from which we can discern a high probability setup. This is a somewhat dispersed Pivot Stack, but nonetheless is a good area of support.

We want to “lean against” the support or resistance in these setups. In this case we will want to lean against the support and look to take a long position. But we want to have confirmation by awaiting the price to go above the Monthly Pivot Range high, which is key resistance.

So the action to take is to place a buy order slightly above the Monthly Pivot Range high.

Place your stop loss and profit targets stated below.

Entry Price: 627.00
Stop Loss: 568.00
Profit Targets: First profit target 687.00. Second profit target 710.00. Once price hits first profit target raise the stop loss to breakeven.
