Trade Recommendation: Huntercoin

The Huntercoin/Bitcoin (HUC/BTC) market exhausted its bull run on June 21, 2017 when it generated a lower high of 0.000115. Things took a turn to the worse when it broke support of 0.00006 on July 7. Since then, the pair generated consecutive lower highs and lower lows until it finally established a bottom at 0.00001003 on October 23. At this price level, the market shed over 91% of its value from the lower high of 0.000115.

HUC/BTC consolidated for a couple of months until it surged on December 23, and took out resistance of 0.00002. The breakout was so strong that it went as high as 0.00004084 on January 12, 2018. Breakout players exploited the ascent which ignited massive profit taking. Consequently, the market dipped, and went as low as 0.00001816 on February 6. This pullback is your opportunity to enter the market at the early stages of a possible bull run.

Technical analysis reveal that the Huntercoin/Bitcoin market is creating a bullish higher low setup at 0.00002. At this price point, breakout players have most likely sold all of their positions. The thin trading volume over the last seven days supports this assumption. In addition, volume surged on February 8 after the market went below 0.00002. This indicates that bulls are prepared to defend the new support level.  

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00002 as possible. If bulls claim 0.00002, the market will likely use it to reach our target of 0.00004. The process may take a month.
