Trade Recommendation: Zcash

Zcash (ZEC/USD) is a market that’s still in accumulation. We have this view because the market has failed to take out the range high of $71.50 after several attempts from April 4 to April 10, 2019. The inability of the bulls to stay above $71.50 ignited a pullback. Nevertheless, this correction gives us a chance to buy the dip.

Technical analysis shows that ZEC/USD appears to be creating a bull flag on the daily chart. This pattern is bullish because it suggests trend continuation.

Now, Zcash may still be in range accumulation but the sentiment is slightly bullish. On a closer look, the market broke out from a double bottom pattern on the lower timeframe when bulls took out resistance of $54 on March 19th. That breakout gave Zcash the momentum to tap resistance of $71.50 on April 4th. While bulls failed to take out the range high, this correction gives them the opportunity to retest a key level as they regroup.

The strategy is to buy on dips as close to $54 as possible. $54 is very likely to hold because this demand area offers a lot of liquidity. The market has yet to tap it since the double bottom breakout on March 19th. As long as ZEC/USD is above $54, it will likely rally to our target of $71.50. Take that out and the next target is $87.

The process may take a month.
