Trade Recommendation: ICON/Bitcoin

Published

on

The ICON/Bitcoin pair (ICX/BTC) started its bull run on January 1, 2018 when it took out resistance of 0.0004. Even though the pair had no solid base below 0.0004, the breakout was able to generate enough momentum to push the price to as high as 0.0009194 on January 30. In about a month, the market rose by almost 130%. Those who bought the breakout were happy to take profits.

Without a good base to sustain a long bull run, the market plummeted under increased selling pressure. It fell to as low as 0.0003799 on February 5 before it rallied. The pair managed to bounce to 0.0006175 on February 6, but the lower high showed that the market has turned extremely bearish. ICX/BTC responded by posting a series of lower highs and lower lows until it found the bottom at 0.0002135 on March 18. The pair has been rallying since, and it seems poised to launch another bull run.

Technical analysis reveal that ICON/Bitcoin is in the process of taking out 0.0004 resistance. To complete the breakout, however, the pair must print volume of about 20 million ICON units. Those who bought the higher low are likely to take profits at the resistance. The pair needs buyers to accommodate the increased selling activity.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.0004 as long as the prescribed volume is met. If bulls breach the resistance, they will ignite a rally that can take the market to our target of 0.00056. The process may take less than a month.

      Even I would like to know this.
      Should we use volume at price indicator?
      A video tutorial for spotting this would be great. Please share if there is any

Trade Recommendation: Populous

Published

on

The Populous/Bitcoin (PPT/BTC) pair launched its uptrend on January 7, 2018 when it took out resistance of 0.0032. This triggered the cup and handle reversal pattern on the daily chart. The breakout attracted so much momentum that the pair quickly became parabolic. With its supercharged velocity, PPT/BTC skyrocketed to 0.007901 on January 31. In less than a month, the market rose by almost 147%.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

At this price point, the pair was in extreme overbought territory. Those who bought the breakout took the opportunity to lock in gains. This ignited a massive selling frenzy that drove the pair down to 0.0015159 on March 9.

The higher the climb, the greater the fall. This is what often happens to any asset that goes parabolic.

Fortunately for bottom pickers, PPT/BTC rallied to slightly over 0.0032 resistance on April 17. While the market has been pulling back since, it appears that bulls are beginning to make their presence felt.

Technical analysis reveals that Populous/Bitcoin is carving a bullish higher low setup at 0.0017. Volume began to spike on May 15 when the pair hovered above this level and it remained elevated for the next seven days. This tells us that bulls are ready to buy positions at higher price point. More importantly, PPT/BTC managed to stay above 0.0017 even in the midst of intense selling pressure.

The strategy is to bottom fish the market and buy as close to 0.0017 as possible. As long as the market stays above the support, bulls have all the momentum they need to climb to our target of 0.0032.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: NZDUSD

Published

on

This trade recommendation is setting up quickly and requires prompt attention.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

This is a short term buy trade. The New Zealand Dollar has a very long Hammer candle on the 60 minute chart that has pierced the 6 Day Rolling Pivot Range, the Opening Range and the Daily Pivot Range. This is a bullish setup.

With additional support from the Weekly Pivot Range below the candle we can be confident that this is a high probability trade setup.

So, the action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the price trades above the 0.69440 level. Using the 60 minute chart we will want to buy on a break above this level which will confirm the market wants to move higher. Place your stop just below the Hammer candle low and the profit targets stated below.

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD. Click here to change your current membership -- //

Entry Price: 0.69440
Stop Loss: 0.69170
Profit Targets: First profit target 0.69720. Second profit target is 0.69850.

Trade Recommendation: GBPUSD

This trade recommendation is setting up quickly and requires prompt attention

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

The British Pound is sitting on the Daily Pivot Range as support which coincides with the 14 Day Pivot Moving Average. The uptrend line from the last 48 hours is intact and remains supportive.

The price has been in a channel for the last many hours and could be ready for a move out of the sideways trend.

With good support on a narrow channeling with a triangle formation we have a setup with a close stop loss level, which gives us an ideal risk reward ratio.
