Trade Recommendation: Status

The Status/Bitcoin (SNT/BTC) pair bounced off a low of 0.00000471 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by almost 90% from the 2018 high of 0.00004406. With such a tremendous loss, investor confidence is most likely shattered at this point.

However, one of the best times to invest in an asset is when no one’s looking. Whales or smart money investors often enter when no one’s paying attention. We can see this scenario possibly developing in SNT/BTC.

Technical analysis shows that SNT/BTC is positioning to take out resistance of 0.0000056. The breach would trigger the breakout from the large falling wedge pattern on the daily chart.

We believe that SNT/BTC will likely breakout from the pattern for several reasons. First, the pattern is near its apex. This makes it very difficult for bears to establish another lower high considering that value has gone down by almost 90%. On top of that, volume has been significantly declining. A dwindling supply paired with bearish exhaustion can be a recipe for a breakout.

Lastly, we can see the daily RSI breakout from its own falling wedge. This tells us that bulls are starting to make their presence felt.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.0000056 as long as the market generates volume of 12 million Status units. Bears will do their best to keep market control. SNT/BTC needs buyers to absorb the expected selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the rally will likely take SNT/BTC to our target of 0.000008.

The process may take a month.
