Trade Recommendation: Platinum/EUR

Published

on

The Platinum/Euro pair (XPT/EUR) started its bull run in January 2009 when it took out resistance of 714. This triggered the rounding bottom reversal pattern on the monthly chart. The breakout attracted so much momentum that it became parabolic. This catapulted the pair to as high as 1,393.13 in May 2010.

At this price point, the market flashed bearish signals. It was in overbought territory. Moreover, the monthly candle was a huge spinning top implying indecision. Those who saw the writings on the wall began to take profits.

Platinum/Euro dropped to 1157.36 in July 2010. Bottom pickers saw that the pair respected the 78.6% Fibonacci level so they bought the dip. They sparked a rally to 1,370.39 in January 2011.

Unfortunately for buyers at this level, the lower high showed that the bulls were tapped out. In response, market participants dumped their positions. XPT/EUR posted lower highs and lower lows as selling became the theme. Recently, however, it is showing signs of reversal.

Technical analysis show that XPT/EUR may have bottomed out at 735.54 in April 2018. This comes after the pair generated a bullish divergence on the monthly chart. Also, the pair appears to respect the 23.8% Fibonacci level. Lastly, it looks to have generated a higher low at 743.88 on May 21 on the daily chart.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to 750 as possible. As long as bulls stay above this level, they have all the momentum they need to climb to our target of 850.

The process may take more than three months.

Trade Recommendation: Bitcoin

Published

on

On our August 18, 2018 trade recommendation, we notified our readers to sell as soon as Bitcoin (BTC/USD) hit $7,400. The target was hit on September 4 when the market went as high as $7402.50. We hope you were able to sell close to the target because BTC immediately corrected after it hit the resistance. We had this view that the move to $7,400 is another pump and dump rally because Bitcoin was forming the last legs of its reversal pattern.

Technical analysis shows that Bitcoin is about to break out from a symmetrical triangle on the daily chart. This formation started to show promise after BTC generated a higher low setup of $6,106.37 on September 19. The higher low appears to be the conclusion of the E wave, which is the last leg down of the triangle.

With a higher low in place, the next step is to take out the resistance of $6,800. From the looks of it, the breakout appears to be only a matter of time.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $6,800 after the market prints volume of 10,000 Bitcoins. The breakout would signal the end of the correction. Thus, bears will try their best to keep market control. Bitcoin needs buyers to absorb the expected heavy selling.

Once breakout is complete, initial target is $9,800. The process may take a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Breakout at $6,800 after volume of 10,000 Bitcoins in met.

Target: $9,800

Stop: $6550 after the breakout.

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.

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.
