Trade Recommendation: SONM/Ethereum

The SONM/Ethereum pair (SNM/ETH) launched its first bull run on December 17, 2017 when it took out 0.0004 resistance. The breakout had a strong momentum that it pushed the price to as high as 0.00121111 on January 6, 2018. In less than a month, the market skyrocketed by over 200%. Breakout buyers exploited the chance to dump positions and lock their gains.

Faced with heavy selling pressure, the market broke below 0.0004 support on January 14. This is what usually happens to high flyers. They often crash as soon as they hit the top. As SNM/ETH nosedived, this could be your opportunity to pick the bottom.

Technical analysis show that SONM/Ethereum appears to be bottoming out at 0.0002 support. The market has always respected this support level as seen in the bounce that occurred on November 25, 2017. The pair has also touched 0.0002 support on March 9, and bulls rushed in to defend the support. Both price and volumed surged on that day.  

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0002 support as possible. If bulls continue to defend this level, it will likely create a base before climbing to our target of 0.0004. The process may take a month.
