Trade Recommendation: XZCBTC

Published

on

Usually, breakouts from patterns tend to pull back to their breakout levels. A successful retest of the breakout from a large basing pattern is a good time to buy. It usually indicates the start of a new uptrend and offers the traders an entry with low-risk. We believe that the set up on XZCBTC fits the bill and is worthy of a long position at the current levels.

Key points

  1. ZCoin has broken out of a large range and is likely to start a new uptrend
  2. Buy XZCBTC

Weekly chart

On the long-term chart, ZCoin is trading in a broad range of $0.002 and $0.00759. The attempts by the bears to breakdown of the range failed in October of this year. The cryptocurrency has started to trend up and is likely to rally towards the upper end of the range. If it manages to break out of the large range, it is likely to gain momentum. The current levels offer us an opportunity to buy near the lower end of the range, which reduces our risk. Let’s see the entry and exit levels on the daily chart.

Daily chart

The daily chart shows twin peaks made in mid-April and end-June of this year. However, since July of this year, the stock was stuck inside a range of $0.00162 on the lower end and $0.0036 on the upper end.

An attempt to break out of the range failed on August 10. Thereafter, the cryptocurrency again broke out of the range on November 21 and quickly climbed to $0.005 levels.

As is the case with most breakouts, the digital currency also pulled back towards the breakout levels. For the past four days, the bears have been trying to sink ZCoin back into the range.

However, strong buying by the bulls has pushed the virtual currency back above the range. We expect ZCoin to rally towards its pattern target of $0.0055 and thereafter to $0.007 levels.

However, the cryptocurrency can face resistance at the $0.005 levels, where the traders can book partial profits and raise the stops on the remaining position.

We recommend buying XZCBTC at the current levels of $0.0038 with a stop loss of $0.0030.

    With the btc surge would you still think selling at the stop loss is a good strategy with all the alts dropping? Would you expect a comeback in alts when btc corrects a bit? Thanks and appreciate all your insight.

      Hello ridge195,

      Sorry for the late reply. I had gone out for some work.

      Well, if you haven’t sold the position till now, I believe it is better to hold on to it. Once the bitoin futures start trading, I anticipate interest to shift to altcoins. XZCBTC is likely to rebound and provide us an opportunity to exit.

      With warm regards

Trade Recommendation: TRON/Ethereum

Published

on

After days of heavy selling, the cryptomarkets are starting to show signs of life. It appears that bears are running out of ammunition just as many altcoins are about to hit long-term support levels. One of those altcoins is TRON/Ethereum (TRX/ETH).

Technical analysis show that TRX/ETH is at the tail end of its corrective period. The falling wedge on the daily chart is about to touch the apex. At the same time, TRX/ETH is hovering above a trendline that’s been keeping the pair’s long-term uptrend alive. We expect demand to surge as the price comes close to this support. Add that to the narrowing trading range and we have the ideal conditions to spark a rally.

Adding fuel to the fire is the daily RSI where we can see a bullish divergence. More importantly, the RSI seems to be creating a broadening wedge pattern. If the support holds, then the next stop of the RSI might be close to oversold territory. This tells us that bulls are brewing a powerful rally.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.000072 after the pair prints volume of more than 110 million TRON units. Even though bears are exhausted, they will do their best to keep market control. TRX/ETH needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the ensuing rally would likely take the pair to our target of 0.0001.

The process may take less than one month.

As of this writing, the TRON/Ethereum pair is trading at 0.00007136 on Binance.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Breakout at 0.000072 with volume of 110 million TRON units.

Target: 0.0001

Stop:  0.00007 after breakout.

Trade Recommendation: Lisk

Published

on

Lisk/Bitcoin (LSK/BTC) has been brutally clobbered this year. The pair lost around 90% of its value from the high of 0.003398 on February 10, 2018. The good news is that bulls have had it. They are taking no more. Recent price action shows their conviction.

Technical analysis reveal that LSK/BTC has broken out of a long falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The breakout looks convincing because of the reasons below.

First, the pair generated above average volume in the last four days. This is a good sign that bulls are buying the market. In fact, the last time LSK/BTC printed such heavy volume was back in April 2018.

On top of that, LSK/BTC has also broken out of a falling wedge on the daily RSI. The breakout looks legitimate as it was a sharp rally rather than a quick peek. In addition, we see a large bullish divergence on the MACD as well as a bullish cross.  All these signals indicate that LSK/BTC has returned from the dead.

The strategy is to buy the retest of the breakout as close to 0.00048 as possible. If bulls defend this level, it is very likely that there will be a quick rally to our initial target of 0.0007. We’ll revisit the trade once the target is hit.

The process may take less than a month.

Buy: Buy as close to 0.00048 as possible.

Target: 0.0007

Stop: 0.00046

Trade Recommendation: Bread

Published

on

The cryptocurrency markets, especially altcoins are facing a brutal week. So many pairs are either in oversold or extreme oversold territory. While it may look scary to enter long positions at this point, it’s actually a good idea to be a contrarian. The immense selling in the past few days puts bulls in a good position to annihilate short positions.

In line with that, we believe Bread/Bitcoin (BRD/BTC) is poised for a strong rally.

Technical analysis show that BRD/BTC looks ready to break out of a large falling wedge on the daily chart. Yesterday’s pin bar candlestick supports this assumption. This shows that bottom pickers are buying the support.

In addition, we can see a bullish divergence on the daily RSI. This also affirms the idea that the market is gaining bullish momentum.

Lastly, the pair appears to be at the apex or at least near the apex of the falling wedge. With a bounce underway, bears would be hard-pressed to generate a lower high that’s so close to the support.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.000055 after the pair prints volume of more than 2.3 million Bread units. Bears will try to put up a fight to keep market control. BRD/BTC needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Once breakout is complete, the ensuing rally would likely take the pair to our target of 0.000075.

The process can take less than one month.
