Trade Recommendation: WaBi

The WaBi/Bitcoin (WABI/BTC) pair managed to climb to as high as 0.00040733 on January 10, 2018. At this price level, the pair started to show signs of exhaustion. The daily RSI was in extreme overbought territory. In addition, the daily candle had a long wick on top of its body.

Apparently, those were the beginnings of a seven-month bear market. The deep retracement drove WABI/BTC to as low as 0.00001887 on August 14. The positive news is that bears are now the ones showing signs of exhaustion.

Technical analysis show that WABI/BTC has breached resistance of 0.000027 on August 26. The breakout triggered 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 because it was pushed by heavy demand. On August 26, WABI/BTC generated volume that’s over 360% of its daily average. On top of that, the daily RSI also broke out from its own falling wedge. This is another indicator that tells us that bulls are gathering significant momentum.

The strategy is to buy the breakout as close to 0.000027 as possible. Those who bought the bottom at 0.00001887 are now taking profits. This can be an opportunity for you to buy the dip.

The successful backtesting of the breakout will likely generate the momentum needed to take the market to our target of 0.000052. The process may take a month.
