Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

With the market volatility dropping off we have seen the market drifting with a lack of conviction in direction. We will need to lower our expectations a bit to returns that are more modest from the outsized gains we all became accustomed to over the last year.

We see the Daily Pivot Range (blue dots), and the 3 Day Rolling Pivot Range (yellow dots) overlapping, this is important. The Opening Range is also just above these levels. So the bias is to the upside.

The Daily Pivot Moving Averages are flat, so they are neutral. The market could be setting up for a rally.

But it will have to confirm this strength by closing above the ‘A’ up line.

The action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the market trades at or above the ‘A’ up line for 15 consecutive minutes or longer. This will confirm the market wants to move higher. Use your short term or 1-5 minute charts to verify the time requirement.

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 48 hours and if no significant move after 3 hours, exit the trade. Keep in mind the 3 hours is not a rule but a guideline as you will want to use discretion when managing the trade.

Entry Price: 218.77
Stop Loss: 211.28
Profit Targets: First profit target 230.00. Second profit target 244.00. Once price reaches the first profit target raise the stop loss to breakeven.

Trade Recommendation: Stellar

Published

on

We’ve been tracking the Stellar/Bitcoin (XLM/BTC) pair for some time now and for good reason. The pair has been retracing after generating a high of 0.00006789 on January 3, 2018. That means for about nine months, the pair has been trading bearishly. However, recent price action finally enabled XLM/BTC to leave bear country.

Technical analysis shows that Stellar/Bitcoin took out resistance of 0.00036 on September 21, 2018. This allowed the pair to breakout from the large symmetrical triangle pattern on the daily chart.

The breakout looks convincing as well. XLM/BTC printed volume that’s over 150% of its daily average. On top of that, the daily RSI also broke out of its own symmetrical triangle. This tells us that momentum is on the side of the bulls.

With heavy momentum, the breakout rally is currently underway. So far, bulls have managed to take the pair to as high as 0.00004489 today, September 23. However, the pair is currently overbought in the daily chart. We can expect the market to pull back as breakout traders and bottom fishers take profits. This is your chance to buy cheap.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to 0.000039 as possible. As long as bulls keep the market above this level, they will attract the momentum needed to rally to our target of 0.00006.

The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Target: 0.00006

Stop: 0.000038

Trade Recommendation: ICON

Published

on

The ICON/Bitcoin (ICX/BTC) pair breached resistance of 0.00009 on August 17, 2018. This enabled the pair to break out from the large falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The price action attracted breakout players who helped push the market to as high as 0.0001458 on August 27.

At that point, the market started to pull back as some bottom pickers and breakout traders took profits. ICX/BTC dropped to 0.0000842 on September 12 before bulls swooped in and lifted the market above the breakout. This price action indicated that the end of the consolidation is in sight.

Technical analysis shows that ICX/BTC is carving a bullish higher low setup at 0.00009. This is a very encouraging signal because it validates the breakout and gives participants a key support area to rely on. More importantly, it confirms our view that the market is in the early stages of an uptrend.

In addition, ICX/BTC has been relatively quiet for about a couple of weeks, but that changed yesterday when price, RSI, and volume suddenly surged. This might be an indication that the market is ready to resume its uptrend.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00009 as possible. As long as the market is above this level, it has the momentum to rally to our target of 0.00018.

The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Ontology

Published

on

The Ontology/Bitcoin (ONT/BTC) pair took out resistance of 0.00022 on August 16, 2018. The breach triggered the breakout from the large descending channel on the daily chart. The price action inspired a rally that saw ONT/BTC climb to as high as 0.0004357 on August 18.

At that point, bottom pickers and breakout players took profits. As a result, the pair slid to 0.0002514 on September 12 before bulls took charge and ended the consolidation period.

Technical analysis shows that Ontology/Bitcoin has broken out of a bullish pennant pattern on the daily chart. The breakout happened yesterday, September 21, when the pair took out resistance of 0.0003.

Technical indicators are backing up our view. The volume of ONT/BTC has been decreasing after the pair broke out from the descending channel on August 16. Volume reduction is a key characteristic of a bullish consolidation. Yesterday, however, volume significantly increased, which most likely signals the resumption of the uptrend.

We can see the same action on the RSI. Momentum surged as the pair broke out of the bullish pennant.

The strategy is to buy at the current price level of 0.0003. If bulls can stay above this level, they will attract the momentum required to rally to our target of 0.00055.

The process may take less than a month.
