Trade Recommendation: Zcash

Published

on

The Zcash/Bitcoin pair (ZEC/BTC) ignited its bull run when it took out 0.04 resistance on January 7, 2018. This triggered the bullish inverse head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart. The force of the breakout pushed the market to as high as 0.0588 on February 10. At this price point, the market has achieved the target of the inverse head and shoulders pattern.

Savvy traders equipped with this knowledge started dumping positions to lock gains. As a result, the market tumbled. It broke below 0.04 support on February 20. Bulls tried to keep that territory but selling pressure was so strong that the pair continued to plunge. While the ZEC/BTC has fallen, this could be your chance to pick the bottom.

Technical analysis reveal that Zcash/Bitcoin is about to hit firm support of 0.03. When it does, the market would most likely be in oversold territory. It should provide selling relief that can start a rally.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.003 support as possible. If the market respects this level, ZEC/BTC will likely use it as a base to climb to our target of 0.05. The process may take more than a month.

    If you held Bitcoin and for a long time zcash was (in your mind) the best privacy coin and now there is a coin that combines your favourite coins, what would stop you from thinking to sell off your zcash for BTCP?

Trade Recommendation: Monero

Published

on

The Monero/US Dollar pair (XMR/USD) climbed as high as $469.50 on December 20, 2017. This marked the end of an impressive bull run that saw the pair grow by more than 700% in four months. From this point, the XMR/USD has been in a downward spiral. The good news is that a significant bounce is on the horizon.

Technical analysis reveal that XMR/USD is showing signs of a potential rally. First, we see the pair about to hit the apex of the large falling wedge on the daily chart. This pattern is so large that it is also visible on the weekly chart.

A quick look at the falling wedge shows that the market always bounces when it drops to the support. The market is currently sliding down the support side of the wedge. This gives us reason to believe that a bounce is in play.

On top of that, XMR/USD is also about to touch its long-term support. This trend line has existed since March 2017. The strength of this support should make it difficult for bears to push the price further down.

Lastly, we can see a bullish divergence on the daily RSI. This tells us that XMR/USD is gaining momentum. This signal also affirms our arguments that the support will hold and that will lead to a significant bounce.  

The strategy is to buy as close to $80 as possible. Should bulls hold on to this key support, they will likely inspire a rally to our target of $125.

The process may take less than a month.

Summary of Strategy

Buy: Buy as close to $80.00 as possible.

Target: $125

Stop: $75

Trade Recommendation: Aeternity

Published

on

The Aeternity/Bitcoin (AE/BTC) pair surprised investors when it went as high as 0.0006333 on April 29, 2018. Before that move, AE/BTC was trading at a low of 0.000159 on March 18. This means that those who bought at the low grew their investments by over 300% in less than a month.

Unfortunately for buyers at 0.0006333, participants exploited the pump. The market has been dropping since. Nevertheless, it appears that AE/BTC is ready for bottom picking.

Technical analysis show that AE/BTC is trading inside a large falling wedge. The pattern is about to hit the apex just as it is about to touch the line in the sand of 0.000165 support.

Call it coincidence, market psychology, or manipulation. What’s important is that we know that 0.000165 is an area where demand exceeds supply. This is the staging ground that kickstarted the bull run earlier this year when the market surged to 0.0006333. This tells us that the “smart money” likes to buy at this price level.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.000165 support as possible. If our assumption is true, then the “smart money” or the “whales” will start buying at this level. They will also defend on the support to protect their positions. This should spark a rally to our initial target of 0.0002532.

The process can take less than one month.

Long-Term Trade Recommendation: ZRX

Published

on

The 0x/Bitcoin (ZRX/BTC) pair looks bearish short-term, but it looks quite the opposite in the medium and long-term. The drop from 0.00018629 resistance appears to be a “buy on dip” rather than a full-blown correction. We have the technicals to support our view.

Technical analysis show that ZRX/BTC is trading within a wide ascending channel in the daily and weekly charts. The structure looks strong because it is not widening nor contracting. On top of that, the higher highs and higher lows are generated as a result of healthy consolidations and corrections. The symmetrical triangle pattern emerging in the daily chart is proof of this healthy consolidation.

Currently, the symmetrical triangle pattern appears to be completing the C-wave, which is often the penultimate leg down before the breakout. ZRX/BTC needs to complete two more waves before it can break out of the pattern and resume its climb to the top end of the range. Triangles take time to complete, which is why this is a long-term trade recommendation.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00012 as possible. If bulls preserve the long-term support, they will inspire a rally to our initial target of 0.00017. We expect one more leg down before ZRX/BTC can climb to our longer term target of 0.00025.

The process may take three months.
