Trade Recommendation: Gold/NZD

Published

on

The Gold/New Zealand Dollar pair (XAU/NZD) lost all bullishness in October 2012 when it posted a lower high of 2,193.494. The pair then took a turn for the worse as it broke support of 1,900 in April 2013. This triggered the rounding top reversal pattern on the monthly chart.

The breakout ignited a selling frenzy that drove the pair to as low as 1,439.25 in December 2013 (A-wave). In a little over a year, Gold lost almost 35% of its value against the New Zealand Dollar.

At this price level, bulls began to emerge. They protected the 1,460 support until December 2014. With a solid base established, the market began to rally. It went as high as 1,944.854 in June 2016 (B-wave). While bears managed to defend the 1,900 resistance, bulls responded by generating a higher low at 1,594.445 in December 2016 (C-wave).

With a higher low in place, the pair rallied to 1,904.098 in November 2017 (D-wave). The pair has been pulling back since. This could be your opportunity to buy the next higher low.

Technical analysis show that the Gold/New Zealand Dollar pair is creating an ascending triangle pattern. It appears to be at the early stages of an E-wave down. We have several reasons to support this view.

First, we can see that the market retested the 1,900 resistance in May 2018. This serves as a confirmation that bears still control that price level. In addition, the 9-day and 21-day moving averages are detached from the monthly candle. This suggests a potential move down.

The strategy is to buy the dip as close to 1,800 as possible. If bulls stay above this level, they will gather the momentum required to break out of the formation and move to our target of 2,300.

The process may take more than six months.

Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

The Litecoin/Bitcoin pair (LTC/BTC) dropped to as low as 0.00758498 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by almost 70% from the 2018 peak of 0.02499999.

If you’ve been following our trade recommendations, you’d probably know that we like picking altcoin pairs that have suffered heavy losses. That’s because these pairs often have great bottom picking setups. More importantly, the bottom provides the maximum financial opportunity. We’re seeing that shape up in LTC/BTC.

Technical analysis shows that LTC/BTC is carving a bottom at 0.0082 support. While the pair is still trading inside a descending channel, we’re confident that it will break out of the pattern soon. We have a couple of technical reasons to support our view.

First, we can see multiple supports converging at 0.0082. We have the parabolic support, the uptrend support, and then the support of the descending channel. The convergence tells us to expect significantly increased demand at this level.

In addition, LTC/BTC is oversold on the weekly chart. Add the selling relief from oversold conditions to the surge in demand and we might see a breakout real soon. This is something that we’ve already seen in other altcoins such as XRP/BTC and XMR/BTC.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0082 support as possible. As long as the market stays above this level, it has the momentum to ascend to our target of 0.0115 first and then 0.014.

The process may take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: EOS

Published

on

The EOS/Bitcoin pair (EOS/BTC) took out resistance of 0.000785 on August 28, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The price movement attracted breakout traders who helped generate a rally to 0.0009544 on September 1.

At that price level, breakout players and bottom fishers started to lock-in gains. The increased supply in the market drove the pair to as low as 0.000752 on September 17. Those who bought the top of the market would have been forced to cut their losses as the pair went below the breakout. The reality, however, is that this pullback is temporary.

Technical analysis shows that the uptrend of EOS/BTC remains intact. This view comes after we saw the pair respecting the uptrend support. Notice how the market just continues to glide up this level. This tells us that bulls will defend the support even if the market is pulling back.

In addition, we can see the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day moving averages preparing to go below the daily candle. This is an encouraging sign. EOS/BTC launched a parabolic run the last time these three moving averages all went below the daily candle. We’re hoping for the same once this consolidation is over.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00082 support as possible. As long as the market stays above the uptrend support, it has the momentum to climb to our target of 0.0012466.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: NEO/Ethereum

Published

on

The NEO/Ethereum (NEO/ETH) pair took out resistance of 0.07 on August 31, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The price action attracted breakout players and momentum traders who helped push the pair to as high as 0.099934 on September 12.

Although we missed the breakout rally, we’re confident that we’ll be able to buy the dip. After all, NEO/ETH was already trading at extreme overbought territory. It would be foolish to chase a flying altcoin. We’d rather wait for the pullback and see how the market plans to resume its uptrend. It looks like we’re getting the go signal.

Technical analysis shows that NEO/ETH has just taken out resistance of 0.08. This enabled the pair to break out of the bullish pennant on the daily chart. The breakout looks convincing because of serious volume. On October 18, the market breached the resistance with volume that’s over 180% of its average.

In addition, the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day moving averages are all lining up below the candles. This is an uncommon alignment indicating that the uptrend is strong and healthy.

The strategy is to buy the retest of breakout as close to 0.08 as possible. As long as the market stays above this level, it has all the momentum it needs to rally to our target of 0.115. The process may take a month.
