Trade Recommendation: Kyber Network

Published

on

The Kyber Network/Bitcoin pair (KNC/BTC) began to look bearish on February 14, 2018 when it broke below support of 0.0003. This ignited a selling frenzy that drove the pair down to 0.00010859 on March 18. The move down was so quick that the pair lost almost 65% of its value in a month.

At this price level, KNC/BTC was showing signs of strength. First, it was in extreme oversold territory. Second, bulls were able to preserve the support on April 6 when the market pulled back after a brief rally. This was a confirmation that a higher low was in place.

With a bullish setup, bottom pickers entered the buying picture. They sparked a strong rally that saw the pair go as high as 0.00038386 in April 26. While the pair has been correcting since, this could be your opportunity to buy the next higher low.

Technical analysis show that Kyber Network/Bitcoin is creating a symmetrical triangle pattern on the daily chart. It appears to be in the latter stages of an E-wave, which is usually the last leg down before a breakout. It is currently pulling back from a strong three-day rally from May 31 – June 2. This could be your chance to buy the confirmation of the breakout.

The strategy is to buy the higher low as close to 0.000165 as possible. If bulls can hold on to the support, they may ignite a rally that can break the market out of the triangle formation. Initial target is 0.0004.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Qtum

Published

on

The Qtum/Bitcoin (QTUM/BTC) pair is down over 82% year-to-date. The market has been in a long and painful downtrend since early this year. Just looking at the chart can make you feel depressed even if you’ve never invested in the pair. The sharp drops throughout this bear market received little to no resistance from bulls. It’s as if bulls have given up hope.

At this point, however, it pays to be a contrarian. Hopelessness and depression are signs of a bottom. The “smart money” usually comes in when the public has abandoned the market. We’re starting to see this in QTUM/BTC.

Technical analysis show that the pair is hovering just above its historic support of 0.0006. This is the market’s line in sand. Bulls must defend it if they have any hope of keeping the market stable. It looks like they got the memo.

On August 14, 2018, volume suddenly spiked as QTUM/BTC dropped to 0.00061. Volume remained elevated until August 17 when the market printed volume that’s never been seen since April 2018. Someone is buying the support and that someone is buying in bulk. To this someone, the market does not look hopeless or depressing.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0006 support as possible. If the backtesting of the historic support is a success, QTUM/BTC might be able to generate the momentum needed to break out of the large falling wedge and rally to our target of 0.001.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

Litecoin (LTC/USD) is coming off lows just like many altcoins. The cryptocurrency dropped to as low as $49.33 on August 14, 2018. At that point, the plummet seemed unstoppable. It’s as if bears were determined to short the market even if it was already trading in extreme oversold territory. However, bottom pickers started to enter the market just as LTC/USD was about to breach major support levels.

Technical analysis show that LTC/USD is still trading inside a large falling wedge pattern on the daily and weekly charts, but that won’t be the case for long. The market is approaching the wedge’s apex. As it does, it is also about to hit two major support levels: the parabolic support and the long-term support.

The recent bounce is affirmed by a sudden volume surge. The volume spike may not be extreme but it’s noticeable. This tells us that bulls also see the convergence of supports and they are now buying the market.

Lastly, we can see a large bullish divergence on the daily MACD. The market continues to gather strength even as the price falls.

The strategy is to buy the retest of support as close to $50 as possible. If bulls hold $50, they will likely gather the momentum they need to break out of the falling wedge and quickly climb to our target of $80.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Ethereum

Published

on

Just like many cryptocurrencies, Ethereum (ETH/USD) is having a terrible month. Investor outlook turned bleak on August 14, 2018 when the market plummeted to $249.93. At that point, Ethereum was down over 80% from its all-time high of $1,424.30. Just as Ethereum started to look hopeless, bottom pickers emerged.

Technical analysis show that ETH/USD is at the apex of a large falling wedge on the daily and weekly charts. The drop to $249.93 was seen as a buying opportunity since bulls came in droves. You can see this in the recent volume surge. We haven’t seen this volume since May.

The increase in demand pushed the market above $285 support. This is critical as $285 is the staging ground of the rally that saw the cryptocurrency skyrocket to $1,424.30. This tells us that ETH/USD may be badly beaten but it is not yet broken.  With the market above $285 again, bulls can use it to gather momentum and break out of the falling wedge.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $325 as long as the market volume of 380,000 Ethereum is met. Those who bought the bottom might take profits at $325. ETH/USD needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Once ETH/USD takes out $325, it can climb to our target of $520. Sell immediately.

The process may take less than a month.

Target: $525

Stop: $300 after the breakout.
