Trade Recommendation: Populous

Published

on

The Populous/Bitcoin (PPT/BTC) pair launched its uptrend on January 7, 2018 when it took out resistance of 0.0032. This triggered the cup and handle reversal pattern on the daily chart. The breakout attracted so much momentum that the pair quickly became parabolic. With its supercharged velocity, PPT/BTC skyrocketed to 0.007901 on January 31. In less than a month, the market rose by almost 147%.

At this price point, the pair was in extreme overbought territory. Those who bought the breakout took the opportunity to lock in gains. This ignited a massive selling frenzy that drove the pair down to 0.0015159 on March 9.

The higher the climb, the greater the fall. This is what often happens to any asset that goes parabolic.

Fortunately for bottom pickers, PPT/BTC rallied to slightly over 0.0032 resistance on April 17. While the market has been pulling back since, it appears that bulls are beginning to make their presence felt.

Technical analysis reveals that Populous/Bitcoin is carving a bullish higher low setup at 0.0017. Volume began to spike on May 15 when the pair hovered above this level and it remained elevated for the next seven days. This tells us that bulls are ready to buy positions at higher price point. More importantly, PPT/BTC managed to stay above 0.0017 even in the midst of intense selling pressure.

The strategy is to bottom fish the market and buy as close to 0.0017 as possible. As long as the market stays above the support, bulls have all the momentum they need to climb to our target of 0.0032.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Dash

Published

on

Dash (DASH/USD) appears to be in a freefall. It dropped to as low as $57 on December 6, 2018. At that price, the market was down by over 95% from the 2018 high of $1,400. On the surface, this cryptocurrency looks like it is ready to die. A closer look, however, shows us that Dash is ready to be reborn.

Technical analysis shows that Dash may have bottomed out on December 6. We have several reasons to support this view.

First, we look at the volume of the weeks leading to the drop of $56.

On the week of November 19, Dash printed volume that’s over 174% of its weekly average. More importantly, the volume buzz was the largest that this coin printed since April 2017. Then a couple of weeks later, the market generated volume that’s over 188% of the weekly average. It was also greater than the volume buzz of the week of November 19. All in all, the combined volume of those two weeks screams capitulation.

On top of that, the move down to $56 completed the market cycle. Dash has given up all the gains it made last year. With a clean slate, the smart money can start accumulating at current levels. It looks like they’re already doing that. The sudden volume uptick on December 7 is a  clue that someone is buying in bulk.

The strategy is to buy as close to $56 as possible. It is very likely that the market will revisit that level again soon. If bulls stay above it, then we might see a quick rally to our target of $86.50.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: TRON

Published

on

TRON (TRX/BTC) is one of the few coins that have remained stable in spite of the massive November selloff. While bears worked hard to push the market below the yearly low of 0.00000259, bulls fought back and managed to lift the market above 0.000003. This happened twice: when the market dropped to 0.00000273 on September 12 and on November 20 when it touched 0.00000284.

As a result, the market moved back and forth between 0.000003 and 0.000004 for months. Recently, however, TRX/BTC has been showing signals that it is ready to break out of the range. This gives us a very good opportunity to anticipate the breach of the range high.

Technical analysis shows TRX/BTC is poised to break out of a triple bottom pattern and launch a bull run. We have several reasons to support this view.

First, even though the market has been trading within a range, a closer look at the 12-hour chart reveals that it has also printed a higher high of 0.00000429 on October 8 and higher low of 0.00000284 on November 20. At the very least, this tells us that bulls are expanding their territory.

In addition, we can see the 200 moving average crawling below the 12H candles. The flip from resistance to support of this indicator is bullish. The 200 MA now acts as a support on the 12H chart that can help TRX/BTC take out the range high.

The strategy is to wait for the market to breakout and retest 0.000004. This bear market has been notoriously setting up bull traps. Many coins have broken out of the range high with heavy volume only to find themselves back to support. Thus, it would be best to buy the retest of the breakout to be on the safe side.

If the market follows the script, the target is 0.00000523. The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Retest of 0.000004 after the breakout.

Target: 0.00000523

Stop: 0.00000386 after the breakout.

Trade Recommendation: Ripple

Published

on

Ripple (XRP/BTC) is one of the few altcoins that have stood strong in the height of the bear market. It climbed as high as 0.00010523 on November 20, 2018, after dropping to as low as 0.00006077 on October 12, 2018. While almost every crypto was plummeting, XRP grew by over 73% in a little over a month.

At that price point, however, Ripple had to correct. It was overbought on the 4-hour chart. In addition, a large bearish divergence was seen on the 4H RSI. With signs of bullish exhaustion, Ripple pulled back. Nevertheless, this retracement gives us a chance to buy the resumption of the uptrend.

Technical analysis shows XRP/BTC breached resistance of 0.000089 today, December 8, 2018. The price action triggered the break out from the falling wedge on the on the 4H chart. With the move above the resistance, Ripple climbed as high as 0.000093 today.

As of this writing, Ripple is retesting the breakout. It appears that bulls are ready to put up a fight. Fortunately, technical indicators are working in their favor.

The lower timeframe RSIs are close to oversold conditions. Also, volume is starting to pick up. This is a sign that buyers are stepping in. More importantly, the 200-day moving average is crawling below the 4H candle. It will act as a support that will help keep Ripple’s uptrend alive.

The strategy is to buy the retest of the breakout as close to 0.000089. If bulls defend this level, they will likely spark a rally to our target of 0.000115.

The process may take a month.
