Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

This trade recommendation is setting up quickly and requires prompt attention

This is a short term trade but with good risk reward ratio. The bias remains to the upside for the short term with the price trading above the Daily Pivot Range (blue dots), therefore this level is key support.

The Daily Pivot Moving Averages are pointed upward and are bullish, while the 3 Day Rolling Pivot Range remains supportive (green, yellow dots).

The action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the market trades at or above the green ‘A’ up line for at least 15 minutes. Check your short term and/or 5 minute chart to verify. Place the stop loss at the Opening Range low and the profit target stated below.

Note: If triggered, look for the trade to play out over a period of 24-36 hours and if no significant move after 3 hours, exit the trade.

Entry Price: 233.10
Stop Loss: 225.57
Profit Targets: First profit target 267.00. Second profit target 308.00. Once price reaches the first profit target raise the stop loss to breakeven. Then if the market follows through to higher levels manage the trade by trailing a stop loss 20 points behind until second profit target is reached or stopped out.

    That is a tight stop loss! Just curious what is your logic for that?

      Agreed is tight but that is the beauty of the trade, it is giving us a good risk reward ratio. The rules of my system call for the stop loss to be at the Opening Range low.

    last 12 hrs, it fell below SL 225, so is the trade still active ?

      The trade never triggered by trading at or above the ‘A’up line. Therefore the stop loss is not relevant. Look for a new trading signal with a similar setup occurring in the new session.

Trade Recommendation: CyberMiles

Published

on

The CyberMiles/Bitcoin (CMT/BTC) pair breached resistance of 0.000014 on August 24, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The breakout looks convincing as the pair printed volume that’s over 830% of its daily average. Consequently, CMT/BTC climbed to as high as 0.00001889.

Unfortunately for breakout buyers, the price action was interpreted by bottom fishers as an opportunity to take profits. As profit-taking commenced, CMT/BTC retraced. Less than a month later, it appears that the correction is over.

Technical analysis show that CMT/BTC is forming a durable support at 0.000012. While this level is slightly below the breakout, the market remains bullish because it is creating a higher low setup. This means that participants are no longer waiting for CMT/BTC to revisit recent lows of 0.00001099, which was posted on August 14 before entering long positions.

In addition, bulls rescued the market when it dropped to as low as 0.00001201 yesterday, September 17. What’s even more interesting is that there was a 230% volume surge yesterday. This indicates that the base building after the breakout is almost over.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000012 as possible. CMT/BTC is correcting to cool off technical indicators in the lower time frames. If the market can stay above this new support, it will likely climb to our target of 0.000021.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Status

Published

on

The Status/Bitcoin (SNT/BTC) pair bounced off a low of 0.00000471 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by almost 90% from the 2018 high of 0.00004406. With such a tremendous loss, investor confidence is most likely shattered at this point.

However, one of the best times to invest in an asset is when no one’s looking. Whales or smart money investors often enter when no one’s paying attention. We can see this scenario possibly developing in SNT/BTC.

Technical analysis shows that SNT/BTC is positioning to take out resistance of 0.0000056. The breach would trigger the breakout from the large falling wedge pattern on the daily chart.

We believe that SNT/BTC will likely breakout from the pattern for several reasons. First, the pattern is near its apex. This makes it very difficult for bears to establish another lower high considering that value has gone down by almost 90%. On top of that, volume has been significantly declining. A dwindling supply paired with bearish exhaustion can be a recipe for a breakout.

Lastly, we can see the daily RSI breakout from its own falling wedge. This tells us that bulls are starting to make their presence felt.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.0000056 as long as the market generates volume of 12 million Status units. Bears will do their best to keep market control. SNT/BTC needs buyers to absorb the expected selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the rally will likely take SNT/BTC to our target of 0.000008.

The process may take a month.

Target: 0.000008

Stop: 0.0000054 after the breakout.

Trade Recommendation: Populous

Published

on

The Populous/Bitcoin (PPT/BTC) pair took out resistance of 0.00056 on August 16, 2018. The breach triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The breakout looks valid because it was followed by a surge in volume and price. PPT/BTC managed to climb to as high as 0.00108 on August 17.

Unfortunately, the rally was seen as an opportunity to take quick profits. Those who bought the bottom and the breakout dumped positions. With the market flooded with supply. PPT/BTC pulled back. Nevertheless, we have reasons to believe that the retracement is over.

Technical analysis shows that PPT/BTC is respecting support of 0.0005. This view comes after bulls managed to keep the pair above this level since September 12. Every time bears try to breach the support, bulls gather their forces to lift the market above the support.

This encouraging sign is affirmed by the growing momentum, which you can see on the RSI. Since June 23, the market has been posting a series of RSI higher lows. This indicates that bulls are no longer waiting for extreme oversold conditions before stepping up. Little by little, bulls are working to swing momentum over to their side.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0005 support as possible. As long as the market is above this level, there’s a very good chance that it will revisit our target of 0.001.

The process may take less than a month.
