Trade Recommendations, June 5th: Buy Litecoin

Published

on

LTC has been lagging the other majors in recent weeks, trending lower compared to Bitcoin, and trading in a broad consolidation pattern against the USD. The Bitcoin chart is showing a lengthy bullish divergence, respecting a strong support zone around the 0.010 level, with a break-out of the consolidation expected in the coming days.

LTC/BTC 4-Hour Chart Analysis

So far the rally attempts were stopped by the declining short-term trend-line which is converging with the support zone and the rising long-term trend-line this week. On the Dollar pair, the currency is still trading near the $30 mark, with the declining trendline of the consolidation pattern still holding back the currency.

LTC/USD 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The initial target for the move is the 0.015 resistance on the Bitcoin pair, while the Dollar pair could rise into the $45-$50 range in the coming weeks. The bearish scenario is a sustained break below the 0.010 support, so stop-loss orders could be placed around the 0.08 level, and around the $24.50 on against the USD. More aggressive traders could wait for the break-out and use tighter stops.

    When I ventured into the world of cryptocurrency investment a few months ago, I put a large part of my initial funds into Litecoin. After a quick rise in value, Litecoin then went down and just sort of stayed there. I was tempted several times to sell off at least half of my Litecoins, but something told me I would ultimately regret doing so; so I just took the hit and let it ride. Litecoin does appears to be going up quickly right now, so selfishly I hope that will continue to be the case. It seems inevitable that Litecoin will eventually increase in value, so as a long-term investor, I suspect my initial investment will pay off in the long run. It has certainly done so with ethereum, the other coin I bought into fairly heavily at the onset. Thank you for this recommendation.

    Does this recommendation consider the possibility Bitcoin will have segwit by August 1st 2017— this could be a possibility and will undoubtedly have impact on the price of Litecoin.

      Right, it will have an effect on Litecoin, but for me it doesn’t change the basic premise of LTC. We will do an overview on Litecoin where we can discuss the fundamentals. Thanks for the input!

Trade Recommendation: Litecoin

Published

on

The Litecoin/Bitcoin pair (LTC/BTC) dropped to as low as 0.00758498 on September 12, 2018. At that price level, the market was down by almost 70% from the 2018 peak of 0.02499999.

If you’ve been following our trade recommendations, you’d probably know that we like picking altcoin pairs that have suffered heavy losses. That’s because these pairs often have great bottom picking setups. More importantly, the bottom provides the maximum financial opportunity. We’re seeing that shape up in LTC/BTC.

Technical analysis shows that LTC/BTC is carving a bottom at 0.0082 support. While the pair is still trading inside a descending channel, we’re confident that it will break out of the pattern soon. We have a couple of technical reasons to support our view.

First, we can see multiple supports converging at 0.0082. We have the parabolic support, the uptrend support, and then the support of the descending channel. The convergence tells us to expect significantly increased demand at this level.

In addition, LTC/BTC is oversold on the weekly chart. Add the selling relief from oversold conditions to the surge in demand and we might see a breakout real soon. This is something that we’ve already seen in other altcoins such as XRP/BTC and XMR/BTC.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.0082 support as possible. As long as the market stays above this level, it has the momentum to ascend to our target of 0.0115 first and then 0.014.

The process may take more than a month.

Trade Recommendation: EOS

Published

on

The EOS/Bitcoin pair (EOS/BTC) took out resistance of 0.000785 on August 28, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The price movement attracted breakout traders who helped generate a rally to 0.0009544 on September 1.

At that price level, breakout players and bottom fishers started to lock-in gains. The increased supply in the market drove the pair to as low as 0.000752 on September 17. Those who bought the top of the market would have been forced to cut their losses as the pair went below the breakout. The reality, however, is that this pullback is temporary.

Technical analysis shows that the uptrend of EOS/BTC remains intact. This view comes after we saw the pair respecting the uptrend support. Notice how the market just continues to glide up this level. This tells us that bulls will defend the support even if the market is pulling back.

In addition, we can see the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day moving averages preparing to go below the daily candle. This is an encouraging sign. EOS/BTC launched a parabolic run the last time these three moving averages all went below the daily candle. We’re hoping for the same once this consolidation is over.

The strategy is to buy as close to 0.00082 support as possible. As long as the market stays above the uptrend support, it has the momentum to climb to our target of 0.0012466.

The process may take a month.

Trade Recommendation: NEO/Ethereum

Published

on

The NEO/Ethereum (NEO/ETH) pair took out resistance of 0.07 on August 31, 2018. This triggered the breakout from the large falling wedge on the daily chart. The price action attracted breakout players and momentum traders who helped push the pair to as high as 0.099934 on September 12.

Although we missed the breakout rally, we’re confident that we’ll be able to buy the dip. After all, NEO/ETH was already trading at extreme overbought territory. It would be foolish to chase a flying altcoin. We’d rather wait for the pullback and see how the market plans to resume its uptrend. It looks like we’re getting the go signal.

Technical analysis shows that NEO/ETH has just taken out resistance of 0.08. This enabled the pair to break out of the bullish pennant on the daily chart. The breakout looks convincing because of serious volume. On October 18, the market breached the resistance with volume that’s over 180% of its average.

In addition, the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day moving averages are all lining up below the candles. This is an uncommon alignment indicating that the uptrend is strong and healthy.

The strategy is to buy the retest of breakout as close to 0.08 as possible. As long as the market stays above this level, it has all the momentum it needs to rally to our target of 0.115. The process may take a month.

Stop: 0.076
