Trade Recommendation: Haven Protocol

We’ve been following Haven Protocol (XHV/BTC) from some time now, after we saw its bullish potential. It skyrocketed from 0.0001371 on October 12 to as high as 0.00056 on November 12, 2018. In as little as one month, Haven Protocol grew by over 308%.

Though we were tempted to recommend long positions during this meteoric rise, we knew better than to chase an incredibly bullish altcoin. We’d rather wait for a price level that offers a very good risk to reward ratio. Good thing we did because XHV/BTC breached support of 0.000417 on November 15. This triggered the head and shoulders reversal pattern on the 4-hour chart.

With this price action, Haven Protocol is officially in a downtrend. However, there’s a good trade opportunity that’s presenting itself.

Technical analysis shows that XHV/BTC is fighting hard to protect support of 0.00034. Bulls must defend this level at all costs to keep the market from becoming extremely bearish. If Haven Protocol breaks this level, it might trigger a waterfall event that can send the market to the ultimate target of the head and shoulders pattern of 0.000295.  

We believe that bulls have a great chance of holding this support for several reasons. First, volume is starting to pick up. If bulls want to keep market control, buyers must show up. Otherwise, many participants might get jittery and close their positions and thus increase selling pressure. So, watch out for volume.

Next, the 4H RSI appears to be respecting support of 35. The market has never given up this support ever since climbing above it on October 15. Therefore, we can expect bulls to gather significant momentum at this level.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00034 as possible. As long as the market is above this level, it has the momentum to rally to our target of 0.000417. Take that out and the next target is 0.000489.

The process may take more than a month.
