Trade Recommendation: Reddcoin

The Reddcoin/Bitcoin (RDD/BTC) pair is giving crypto enthusiasts something to be excited about. The pair took out resistance of 0.0000004 on August 27, 2018. The breach triggered the breakout from a falling wedge pattern.

Breaking out from a falling wedge is something that you can observe in many altcoins. However, many of these altcoins significantly retraced. Some even went below the breakout. This is where RDD/BTC is unique. Its recent price action supports our view that the worst of the bear market is over.

Technical analysis shows that RDD/BTC is creating a large pennant on the daily chart. This structure is a bullish continuation pattern. It means that the pair is currently consolidating but it confirms the trend reversal. This period is actually crucial as it enables RDD/BTC to build a strong base that will help keep its uptrend sustainable.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.00000058 after the pair prints volume of at least 300 million Reddcoin units. Volume has been thin recently, which is a characteristic of a consolidation pattern. A spike in volume indicates the end of consolidation and the resumption of the uptrend.

After the breakout, the initial target is 0.0000008. The process may take less than a month.
