Trade Recommendation: OmiseGo/Bitcoin

Based on its Poloniex chart, it appears that the OmiseGo/Bitcoin (OMG/BTC) market had an initial coin offering (ICO) at a price of 0.0075 on September 12, 2017. Unfortunately for ICO investors, the pair lost almost 63% of its value on its ICO day as it closed at 0.00280934. From that point, OMG/BTC was on a free fall until it bottomed out at 0.00043237 on December 8.

In less than three months, the market shred almost 94% of its value which is why it quickly bounced after finding the bottom. It reached 0.00183431 on January 13, 2018 before flashing overbought readings. Bottom pickers exploited the pair’s rapid ascent, and sent it back to as low as 0.00118222 on February 6. Sensing that a higher low was in place, participants bought positions, and pushed the market up.  

Technical analysis show that OmiseGo/Bitcoin has broken out of a bullish reversal pattern when it breached resistance of 0.00175 on February 27 with above average volume. The market is currently consolidating from the breakout. However, it seems that bulls are prepared to defend 0.00175.  

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00175 support as possible. If the market respects this new support level, it will likely explode to our target of 0.003. The process may take a month.
