Trade Recommendation: Ripple

Published

on

The longer term outlook for Ripple remains supportive. This is a long term analysis. With the Weekly Pivot at .9186 and the 6 Day Rolling Pivot Range just underneath this level we have a good floor from which to monitor a possible move up.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

Although the nearer term Daily Pivot Moving Averages are downward, the 50 day DPMA is flat. These tend to lag price so we can use the price action to lead us forward and identify possible buy in levels and profit targets from there.

From the mid December monster rally, to the first week in January peak, we have seen an approximate 50% retracement to our current levels. This indicates that a sustained move lower is less likely. With that downside risk assessment we can use the recent high moves to identify a new entry level.

The market will want to test the February 10th high resistance at 1.226475

The action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the price closes above this level on the Daily chart. This is important, so that we have confirmation of strength and higher probability of a sustainable move higher. Use discretion to get as close to this price level as possible and be careful not to buy on a spike, rather wait for a retracement.

If triggered the trade duration could take up to 3 weeks given current volatility and momentum.

Place the stop loss at the recent swing low of .88775 which coincides with just under the current Weekly Pivot Range low. See profit targets stated below.

Entry Price: 1.2265
Stop Loss: .9002
Profit Targets: First profit target 1.6900 / second profit target 2.1400 Once the market reaches the first profit target bring the stop loss to breakeven (entry level); then manage the trade further by using a trailing a stop loss .100 – .150 points behind as the market runs higher.

    Thank you for the recommendations. Quick Q, if its a long trade or even a swing, why not just purchase at the current price and sell at your suggested profit points?

      To buy here is more risky because we have no confirmation of a move up. To buy as stated in the recommendation adheres to our principle to buy on strength with confirmation above resistance. The same principle applies to the sell side, sell on weakness below support.

Trade Recommendation: AUD/INR

Published

on

The Australian Dollar/Indian Rupee pair (AUD/INR) ignited its bull run in September 2010 when it breached resistance of 42. This activated the cup and handle reversal pattern on the weekly chart. The breakout attracted trend followers and breakout buyers. The increased buying activity sparked a run that saw the market climb to 62.419 in September 2013. In three years, the Australian Dollar grew by over 48% against the Indian Rupee.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

At this price point, the market flashed bearish signals. A bearish divergence was spotted on the weekly RSI. Also, bulls failed to close above 60.00 on the weekly and monthly charts. This indicated that bulls were exhausted. Those who understood these signals took profits.

The heavy selling pressure drove the pair down to support of 54 in January 2014. While AUD/INR managed to bounce, it could only go as high as 57.553 in August 2014. The lower high killed the market’s bullish momentum. This triggered a selling frenzy that activated the head and shoulders pattern on the weekly chart. As a result, the market plummeted to 45.847 in October 2015.

The pair has been rallying since. This could be your chance to buy the breakout.

Technical analysis show that AUD/INR is looking to take out resistance of 51.60. This comes after the pair generated a series of higher lows with the most recent one at 48.388 in December 2017. The breakout would trigger the huge ascending triangle pattern on the weekly chart.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 51.60. As long as bulls stay above 51.00, they have all the momentum they need to climb to our target of 57.60.

The process may take more than six months.

Monthly Chart of AUD/INR

As of this writing, the Australian Dollar/Indian Rupee pair is trading at 51.215.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Breakout at 51.60.

Target: 57.60

Stop: Close below 50.

Trade Recommendation: Gifto

Published

on

The Gifto/Bitcoin pair (GTO/BTC) started to look bullish on January 3, 2018 when it took out resistance of 0.000025. This activated the small rounding bottom pattern on the daily chart. Also, the breakout attracted a lot of momentum that skyrocketed the pair to 0.00007499 on January 12. In a little over a week, the pair rose by almost 200% in value.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

At this price level, the market flashed bearish signals. First, the market was extremely overbought. Also, a bearish divergence can be spotted on the RSI. Plus, the market has grown so fast in a short time frame. Savvy traders who bought the breakout saw these signals, so they took profits.

The heavy selling drove the market back down to support of 0.000028 on February 2. From there, GTO/BTC rallied back to 0.00007 resistance on February 15. Once again, the pair succumbed to selling pressure as it dropped to the 23.6% Fibonacci level on March 7. While the pair broke the support of 0.000028 on March 29, bulls came to the rescue and pushed the market close to 0.00007 resistance on May 3.

Technical analysis reveals that GTO/BTC is locked in wide range between 0.000028 – 0.00007. Bulls come out when the market hovers around the 23.8% Fibonacci level. On the other end, bears flex their muscles at the 78.6% Fibonacci level. We’ll follow their lead to generate a profitable trade.

The strategy is to bottom fish the market and buy as close to 0.000028 as possible. If bulls preserve this support, the pair will likely move back to resistance of 0.00007. However, it would be best to start taking profits at the 78.6% Fibonacci level or 0.000058. Charts show that bulls have a hard time going above this price area.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Intact Financial

Published

on

Technical Overview

  • Since double-bottoming in 2008 and 2009 at $26 (violet horizontal trendline in Figure 1), Intact Financial (IFC.TO) has enjoyed a four-fold increase. During the 2013, 2016 and 2018 corrections, the stock found support at a long-term trendline (support – green trendline; retests – green arrows).

Figure 1. IFC.TO Weekly Chart

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

  • Zooming in, after topping in November’17, IFC completed a H&S pattern (tops – yellow ellipses, neckline – yellow trendline in Figure 2).
  • In January, March, April, and May, all up-moves halted at a well-defined short-term resistance (red trendline). Yesterday (May 25), the stock managed to break and close above the resistance.
  • Today, the stock closed in positive territory, whereas the Financial sector (TTFS.TO) declined by over 0.5%.
  • The $95 level had served as support on multiple occasions in 2018 (purple horizontal trendline and arrows).

Figure 2. IFC.TO Daily Chart

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD. Click here to change your current membership -- //

Implications

  • The bounce off of the long-term support and the break above the short-term resistance are considered constructive.
  • The stock is expected to find support in the $95 – $96.50 range during pullbacks (i.e. at the red and purple trendlines).
  • The downward target from the H&S pattern was nearly met during the May decline (target – $92.25 – white vertical trendline in Figure 2, May 9 low – $92.65 – last purple arrow).

Outlook

  • Short-term bullish as long as the stock remains above $95
  • Long-term bullish as long as the stock remains above its long-term support (green trendline in Figure 1).

 Trade Recommendation

  • Buy the stock at current levels ($97.50 at EOD on May 24).
  • Target: Half at $101 (the January low which served as resistance in March – second red arrow). Other half at $108 (origin of the late 2017 decline).
  • Stop: Half upon a close below $95. Other half upon a close below the long-term support (currently at approximately $93.50).

Disclosure: No position yet but may initiate at any time. Will likely recommend the stock to my clients as a potential play within the financial sector.
