Trade Recommendation: ICON

Published

on

The ICON/Bitcoin pair (ICX/BTC) has looked bearish since February 3, 2018 when it took out support of 0.0006. This triggered the double top pattern on the daily chart. The breakout forced those who bought above 0.00006 to cut their losses. This started a bear run that has driven the market to as low as 0.0002041 on July 12.

The good news is the market appears to show signs of reversal. We have technicals to support our claim.

Technical analysis show that ICON/Bitcoin is on the verge of breaking out of a large falling wedge pattern. The pair has a bullish bias for the following reasons.

First, all notable support and resistance levels are converging at key support of 0.00021. Bulls have preserved this level since the second half of December 2017. Technical indicators show that they are likely to defend it again.

We have the daily RSI respecting support of 28. Even though it has yet to break out of the resistance, the fact that it is near oversold levels tells us that a breach of the resistance is very likely.

In addition, the daily MACD is showing a bullish cross. This suggests that the market is starting to show signs of strength.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00021 support as possible. If the market manages to stay above this level, bulls will inspire a rally to our initial target of 0.00036. Take that out and the market can climb to 0.00045.

The process may take more than a month.

    Hmmm, we are sitting on a strong support but it is hard not to feel that as bitcoin goes down, that support will crumble, and under that, we start entering no-man’s land, which is scary. Some support at 1700 or so, then after that we are looking at 1200. That’s where I will be buying

    There’s a stop loss on these recommendations in case the support breaks. This pair is ICX/BTC, so keep that in mind also

      Oh yeah, fair enough. It all depends on big BTC, as it usually does

Trade Recommendation: NEO

Published

on

NEO (NEO/USD) looks like a market that wants to break out of accumulation. The market started the accumulation process on December 7, 2018 when it established support of $5.50. This crypto traded around that level for a couple of weeks until a surge in volume showed participants that the market was ready to move higher. The volume uptick ignited a rally that sent the market to as high as $9.36 on December 24, 2018.

If the market was still bearish, NEO would have dumped back down to $5.50 support or even went below it. However, the market generated a higher low set up of $6.92 on December 28, 2018. That was enough for many to start placing long positions in the market.

Technical analysis shows that NEO/USD breached resistance of $9 on January 8, 2019. This triggered the break out from an inverse head and shoulders pattern on the shorter time frames. As a result, the market rallied to as high as $10.08 on January 9.

While NEO is currently pulling back, the rally gave the market its first higher high in months. If NEO can stay above support of $7.30, the market’s sentiment will turn from neutral to slightly bullish.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to $7.30 support as possible. The 100 moving average on the 12-hour chart as well as the 200 moving average on the 4-hour chart are crawling around that price area. They will help keep the price above the support.

Should the price manage to stay above $7.30, the market will likely generate the momentum to rally to our target of $9.00. Take that out and the next target is $13.50.

The process may take a less than month.

Trade Recommendation: Komodo

Published

on

Komodo (KMD/BTC) printed a fresh 2018 low of 0.00013 on November 24. At that price, the market lost almost 90% of its value from last year’s high of 0.0012598. More importantly, KMD/BTC breached the line in the sand of 0.000154. This means that the market had no known support below that level. In other words, there was no way of knowing when Komodo might bottom out.

Thus, we had to wait for one of two things to happen for this coin to become tradeable. The first is to wait for the market to establish a new support. The second is to see whether the market can reclaim 0.000154. Fortunately, Komodo preferred the second option.

After reclaiming 0.000154, it rallied to as high as 0.0002509 on December 31. While the market is currently pulling back, it is giving us the opportunity to buy the bottom end of the range.

Technical analysis shows that KMD/BTC is headed to support of 0.000154. This view comes after the market broke below the range midpoint of 0.0001968 on January 6, 2019. Komodo then retested it as resistance on January 10.

On top of that, Komodo is also forming a bear flag on the shorter time frame. This suggests that the continuation of the short-term bearish trend. Also, the market just breached its diagonal support while creating the bear flag. With this breakdown, we can form the expectation that Komodo is going down to the range low.

The strategy is to be patient and buy as close to 0.000154 support as possible. As long as KMD/BTC stays above this level, we are correct to assume that the market is currently trading sideways. Thus, after accumulation at the range low, Komodo will likely climb to our initial target of 0.0001968. Take that out and the next target is 0.000239.

The process may take a month.

Targets: 0.0001968 and 0.000239.

Trade Recommendation: WINGS

Published

on

WINGS (WINGS/Bitcoin) bounced off lows of 0.00001702 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the market lost over 90% of its value from last year’s peak of 0.00018. Nevertheless, the heavy losses inspired bottom pickers and bargain hunters to come together and start a buying frenzy. This ignited a strong rally that enabled WINGS to take out the top end of the range of 0.00003088 and climb as high as 0.00004173 on November 7.

At that point, WINGS needed to flip 0.00003088 resistance into support in order to trend higher. Unfortunately, bears reclaimed the resistance as market participants took advantage of the rally to lock in gains. This sparked a selling activity that saw WINGS drop to our range low. The good news is this allows us to bottom pick the market.

Technical analysis shows that WINGS/BTC is trading sideways. This view comes after the market respected our range low of 0.0000184. With bulls successfully defending the support, we now have a double bottom pattern on the daily chart. This tells us that a durable low is in.

In addition, the drop to the bottom end of the range has given technical indicators the time they need to cool off. The daily RSI is far from overbought territory. Also, we can see how volume significantly declined ever since WINGS tapped the range high. This tells us that the market’s sentiment is shifting from profit-taking to base-building.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0000184 support as possible. As long as WINGS/BTC stays above this level, it will likely gather the momentum to rally to our target of 0.00002458. Take that out and the next target is 0.00003088.

The process may take a month.
