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: Monero

Published

on

The Monero/Dollar (XMR/USD) pair ignited its uptrend on November 22, 2017 when it breached resistance of $150. The breakout attracted momentum traders, and that pushed the price to as high as $477 on December 20. In about a month, the market grew by over 218%. However, the pair was in extreme overbought territory at this level. Breakout traders used this opportunity to take profits.

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

Faced with heavy selling pressure, the pair went as low as $151.26 on December 22. As market participants sensed that a higher low was in place, they bought positions, which sparked a rally that saw the the market reach $449.18 on January 15. Unfortunately, $449.18 was a higher low, and bears responded by sending the pair to as low as $150 on February 6. At this point, XMR/USD was back at its breakout price level. It quickly rallied since there was no more sellers.     

Technical analysis shows that the Monero/Dollar pair is creating a bullish higher low setup at $270. Bulls appear to respect this support level as the market has been consolidating around $270 for about a week now. This could be the base that launches XMR/USD to the resistance level of $415.  

The strategy is to buy as close to $270 as possible. Once bulls successfully claim this level, the pair will likely resume its march to our target of $415. The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

The Litecoin/USD (LTC/USD) pair launched its bull run on December 1, 2017 when it breached resistance of $90. The momentum it carried was so strong that it went as high as $370.78 on December 19. In less than three weeks, the market grew by over 311%. This rapid growth was exploited by those who bought the breakout as they dumped positions.  

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

As selling commenced, the pair went as low as $150 on December 22. On the same day, however, it closed at $248.38. The price action created a long wick under the daily candle’s body indicating the presence of buyers. This created momentum, which pushed the market up to $306.85 on January 6, 2018. Unfortunately for buyers at this area, the bears took control of the market, and sent it down to as low as $106.52 on February 6.

Technical analysis show that the Litecoin/Dollar pair broke out of a bullish reversal pattern when it went as high as $216.89 on February 14. The breakout was validated by heavy volume. More importantly, the pair appears to be in the process of creating a higher low at $190.    

The strategy is to buy as close to $190 as possible. Once bulls successfully defend this level, the pair will likely resume its uptrend and reach our target of $360. The process may take less than three months.

Trade Recommendation: Zcash/Ethereum

Published

on

The Zcash/Ethereum (ZEC/ETH) pair ran out of steam on November 13, 2017 when it generated a lower high of 0.829034. Things went from bad to worse for the market when it broke support of 0.70 on December 9. The price action triggered the bearish head and shoulder pattern that validated the downtrend.

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

With a reversal pattern in place, the market created a series of lower highs and lower lows. It eventually bottomed out on February 1, 2018 at 0.32924. In less than two months, the market lost over 60% of its value. While this decline might scare investors, it is actually a good time to buy positions.

Technical analysis show that the Zcash/Ethereum pair has achieved the target of the head and shoulders pattern that was triggered on December 9. It appears that other market participants have also taken notice as they bought positions as soon as the pair hit the target. The renewed momentum carried ZEC/ETH to as high as 0.5859279 on February 10. While the market dipped, it appears to be creating a bullish higher low setup at 0.48.    

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.48 as possible. If bulls successfully defend this new higher low, the pair will likely resume its climb to our target of 0.70. The process may take less than a month.
