Trade Recommendation: Zcash

Published

on

The Zcash/US Dollar pair (ZEC/USD) lost almost 70% of its value this year when it dropped to $150.10 on July 12, 2018. With such a huge plummet, some investors might think it’s prudent to stay on the sidelines for now and wait for a clear sign of reversal. While they wait, we think there’s a good opportunity to bottom fish the market. We have technicals to support our view.

Technical analysis show that Zcash/US Dollar has broken out of a falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The breakout comes after the pair dropped to long-term support of $150. This inspired the market to rally to as high as $222 on July 2. The rally, however, was short-lived as those trapped around $200 dumped positions to minimize losses. Nevertheless, ZEC/USD continues to show signs of strength.

First, the retest of support on July 12 and 13 was a huge success. Currently, we can see the pair creating a bullish pennant on the hourly chart. On top of that, the market has managed to turn the daily RSI resistance of 46.65 to support. Lastly, we can see a long bullish divergence on the daily MACD.

The strategy is to buy as close to $170 as possible. If bulls stay above this level, the market will likely rally to our initial target of $240. Take that out and the market has an easier path to $280, but that may take some time.

The process may take more than a month.

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.

Trade Recommendation: STEEM

Published

on

The STEEM/Bitcoin pair (STEEM/BTC) managed to go as high as 0.00099998 on June 9, 2017. Unfortunately for buyers at this level, STEEM has been dropping since. In fact, it nosedived to 0.00009202 on December 6, 2017 and lost over 90% of its value before generating a notable rally. The good news is that this downtrend is about to come to an end.

Technical analysis show that the pair is creating a large symmetrical triangle on the daily and weekly charts. From the looks of it, it may appear that bears have the upper hand because there’s a significant gap between the B and D waves. Other traders might interpret this as the inability of bulls to put together an impressive rally.

In reality, this puts more pressure on bears to come up with another lower high that’s so close to the support. Right now, bulls are creating a higher low setup at 0.00016. If they succeed, it will not be difficult to take out 0.0002 resistance and breakout of the symmetrical triangle.  

The strategy is to buy the breakout at 0.0002 after the market generates volume of 100,000 STEEM units. Bears will try and fight for market control. The market needs buyers to absorb the selling pressure.

Take out 0.0002 and we have an initial target of 0.00042.

The process may take a month.
