Trade Recommendation: NEM

Published

on

The NEM/Bitcoin pair (XEM/BTC) came off lows of 0.00001257 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the XEM/BTC pair was down by over 90% from the 2018 high of 0.000137. To add insult to injury, many altcoins have already managed to reverse their trend yet the pair is still correcting. Thus, NEM/Bitcoin appears to be one of the worst performers in 2018 as well as a laggard.

Though a laggard altcoin pair sounds undesirable, this actually presents an opportunity. Laggards often follow the overall trend eventually. That means we can leverage similar setups used by altcoin leaders, such as Ripple (XRP/USD) and Monero (XMR/USD), to generate a profitable trade.

Technical analysis show that XEM/BTC started to gather bullish momentum when it dropped to parabolic support of 0.000013 on September 12. The increased demand at this level put the pair in the position to take out resistance of 0.000015. A breach would enable the market to break out from the falling wedge on the daily chart. Take note: this is the exact the same script followed by Ripple and Monero to reverse their trend.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.000015 after the market generates volume of at least 7 million NEM units. Those who bought the bottom might take profits at the resistance. The market needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the market will likely generate a rally to our target of 0.0000215. The process may take less than a month.

Trade Recommendation: Neblio

Published

on

Neblio (NEBL/BTC) came off lows of 0.0002133 on August 14, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by over 95% from the 2018 peak of 0.004574. Even though this plummet puts Neblio on the list of the worst cryptocurrency performers of 2018, there’s still an opportunity to trade the market. Like in the case of our recent trades, we’ll try to pick up Neblio at a support area and sell it at the range high.

Technical analysis shows that NEBL/BTC has established a double bottom pattern on the 4-hour chart. On November 20, the market dropped close to the yearly low of 0.002133. However, lower prices were quickly rejected indicating that a short-term bottom has been established.

As participants noticed the formation of the double bottom pattern, they started to long the market near the range low of 0.0002133. The buying activity sparked a rally that sent Neblio close to the range midpoint of 0.0003133. The rally was met by heavy selling as bottom pickers tried to lock in gains. Nevertheless, bulls bought the dip to put the market in the position to take out the range midpoint with a great technical setup.

Additionally, Neblio’s 4H chart is looking really good. We’ve recently spotted three golden crosses from December 14 – December 16. The 50 moving average (MA) crossed above the 100 MA and the 200 MA. On top of that, the 100 MA moved above the 200 MA. What we have here is an alignment of moving averages suggesting that the market has a strong bullish sentiment.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to the 200 MA of 0.000264 as possible. As long as Neblio respects the 200 MA, it will likely have the momentum to rally to our target of 0.0004132.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin Gold

Published

on

Bitcoin Gold is looking barely a little shinier today. There is a Minor Pivot Stack formed that shows a good risk reward ratio setup.

Worth a serious consideration for a pop to the upside before the Monthly Pivot Range low, which will be major resistance.

You will want to pocket some profits at the first profit target of 18.30, and bail out of the balance of the position at 20.480.

Enter long on strength if the price exceeds yesterday’s high of 13.100. If triggered then place the stop loss below the Pivot Stack low at 10.850

If the trade signal is not triggered within 72 hours, cancel the order.

Entry Price: 13.100
Stop Loss: 10.850
Profit Targets: First profit target 18.30. Second profit target 20.480 . Once price reaches first profit target bring stop loss to breakeven (entry point).

Trade Recommendation: Salt

Published

on

Salt (SALT/BTC) printed a fresh yearly low of 0.000051 on November 26, 2018. At that price, the market was down by more than 95% from the 2018 peak of 0.001244. If you’re a bottom picker, finding assets that have been brutally battered should excite you. However, not all altcoins that have lost over 90% of their value will recover. Some will likely cease to exist.

Nevertheless, there are gems worth buying even under extreme bearish conditions. They may not be able to immediately reverse their trend, but they can provide opportunities to grow your BTC balance. We believe Salt is one of those gems.

Technical analysis shows that SALT/BTC is working hard to establish a short-term bottom at 0.0000552. This area is a strong weekly support. In July 2018, Salt dropped to this area but lower prices were quickly rejected. Markets tend to remember this type of price action. The swift rejection in July showed that bulls are ready to defend 0.0000552.

So far, this assumption is proven to be correct. Even though Salt dropped to 0.000051, bulls quickly recovered the support and closed the week of November 25 above 0.0000552. The market has stayed above that level since. This tells us that participants are likely accumulating at the range low. If this is true, this altcoin will eventually generate the momentum to rally to our range high.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000055 as possible. If bulls continue to defend the support, this crypto will likely have the legs to bounce to our initial target, which is the range midpoint of 0.000083. Take that out and the next target is 0.00011.

The process may take more than a month.
