Trade Recommendation: Short SGD/JPY

Published

on

The Singapore Dollar/Japanese Yen Pair began to look bearish in December 2015 when it generated a lower high of 88.372. Things went from bad to worse when the pair broke support of 82.70 in February 2016. This triggered the large head and shoulders reversal pattern on the weekly chart.

The breakout ignited a selling frenzy that saw the pair drop to as low as 72.371 in June 2016. In about seven months, the Singapore Dollar lost over 18% of its value against the Japanese Yen.

At this price level, the target of the head and shoulders pattern was already achieved. SGD/JPY then went into base-building mode until November 2016 when volume and price surged. This ignited a rally that pushed the pair above 82.70 resistance in September 2017. However, it appears that the pair is not yet ready to start a bull run.

Technical analysis reveal that SGD/JPY is creating a head and shoulders reversal pattern on the weekly chart. This view comes after the pair generated a lower high of 83.014 in May 2018. The price action serves as a confirmation that the 82.70 resistance is still intact. More importantly, it trapped bulls who bought the breakout. Breach of 79.80 support should start a waterfall event that would drive the market down to our target.

The strategy is to short SGD/JPY when it breaks below 79.80. Once the market is below this level, participants will cut their losses which may send the pair to our target of 74.

The process may take three months.

Trade Recommendation: aelf

Published

on

The aelf/Bitcoin (ELF/BTC) pair took out resistance of 0.000058 on September 1, 2018. The breach enabled the pair to breakout from the large falling wedge pattern on daily chart. Unfortunately for breakout buyers, ELF/BTC immediately retraced. It even went as low as 0.00004593 on September 12.

Because of this price action, many would doubt the validity of the breakout. Some may even say that it was a bull trap. Be that as it may, what’s important is that ELF/BTC is showing signs of stability. This is the reason why we’re talking about this trade today.

Technical analysis shows that ELF/BTC appears to be creating a durable bottom at 0.00005 support. Bears tried their hardest to breach the support but they were exhausted. This enabled bulls to wrangle momentum away from them. You can see that the momentum is shifting as the RSI prints a bullish divergence.

An important thing to note is that the market dropped to 0.00005 support on August 14. So if ELF/BTC respects this area one more time, it can mean that a double bottom structure is in play.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00005 as possible. If bulls defend the support, they will attract the momentum needed to rally to our target of 0.000093.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Cardano

Published

on

The Cardano/Bitcoin (ADA/BTC) pair started to show signs of weakness just as it registered its 2018 high of 0.00008788 on January 4. Unfortunately for buyers at the top, the market would go on a long bear run for the next nine months. ADA/BTC went so deep in bear territory that it lost almost 90% of its value.

As disheartening as it may sound, recent price action gives us something to look forward to.

Technical analysis show that Cardano/Bitcoin has taken out resistance of 0.000011 yesterday, September 19. The breach triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. This pattern was responsible for keeping the market bearish for most of the year.

The breakout looks convincing, too. The market printed volume that’s almost twice its daily average. The last time ADA/BTC generated the same volume buzz was back in April 2018.

Currently, ADA/BTC is pulling back due to overbought conditions on the hourly chart. Thus, it is very likely for the market to temporary go below the breakout. This can be your opportunity to buy cheap.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0000108 as possible. If bulls can stay above this level, they will attract more bottom fishers and bargain hunters. This will likely generate a rally to our target of 0.000025.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: Reddcoin

Published

on

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.
