Trade Recommendation: VeChain

Our April 29, 2019 trade recommendation for VeChain (VET/USD) hit both targets. Those who followed the trading plan to the second target grew their investments by over 50% in less than a month. VeChain climbed as high as $0.013199 for a brief time today, May 14, 2019.

Obviously, the market overshot our targets. Fortunately, bulls were not yet strong enough to breach resistance of $0.0069. This gives us another shot to enter at a discount before VeChain starts a massive rally.

Technical analysis shows that VET/USD is creating a bull flag on the daily chart. This is a continuation pattern, suggesting that the market will likely resume its uptrend once consolidation is over. The good news is that the daily RSI is no longer overheated. In addition, the volume is starting to show signs of life. These signals tell us that VeChain might be gathering momentum for the next leg up.

Also, we’re about to see a golden cross between the 100-day moving average (MA) and the 200-day MA. The pending crossover indicates that the market is turning bullish. This can be the technical catalyst that pushes VeChain above the resistance of $0.0069.

The strategy is to buy the breakout and retest of $0.0069. If VET/USD bulls control this level, they will target $0.0085 and $0.01325.

The process may take less than a month.
