Trade Recommendation: Waltonchain

The Waltonchain/Bitcoin pair (WTC/BTC) took out resistance of 0.00044 on August 23, 2018. The breach triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the weekly chart. This enabled the market to rally to as high as 0.0007997 on August 31. In a little over a week, the market grew by over 80%.

The rally, however, was taken as an opportunity by breakout buyers and bottom fishers to dump positions. As heavy selling commenced, WTC/BTC pulled back. Nevertheless, this dip is your chance to buy the breakout.

Technical analysis shows that WTC/BTC is respecting support of 0.00044. This view comes after the pair dropped to as low as 0.0004344 on September 12. At that point, bulls started to enter the buying picture. The increase in demand lifted the market back above the support.

This is an encouraging sign. Pullbacks are often expected to happen after a breakout rally. The fact that WTC/BTC is respecting the new support means that participants are bullish. They are no longer waiting for the pair to revisit recent lows before placing buy orders.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00044 support as possible. As long as the market is above this level, there’s a very good chance that it will revisit our target of 0.00079.

The process may take a month.
