What Goes Up, Must Go Down.

DASH has been in a brutal downtrend back down to prices seen in 2015 & 2014. Current candle is near the mid-point of the channel and that tends to form trend pivots. Some interpretations:

Bulls- Strength buyers are looking for a breakout above the channel.

Bear- Panic stink bids at the bottom of the channel.

Swing Traders- Looking for reactions off price action raid levels.

Disclosure. The author does not own any DASH.

Yet Another Market of Repetition

Chart #1

The first chart shows that the last 2 speculative bubbles look very similar on the weekly chart. The last 9 months has been sideways ranging much like the tail-end of the last bubble cycle as well. The Blue Bar on the Weekly chart is a buy signal, but it comes with a caution flag due to the obvious repetition of the past.

Chart #2

Short term invalidation of the pattern will happen if there is a sudden breakout from the range as seen in the second chart. Dip buyers will take a look at movements into the blue rectangle that come with high volume. Strength buyers will be looking a pushes above the 2 horizontal red lines.

Disclosure. The author does not own any Stellar…yet.

Bullish Continuation Watch List

After 9 months of sideways the Zilliqa ZILBTC chart has broken upwards from its very noticeable range.

The volume looks like accumulation. The weekly chart is printing a bullish signal. The monthly chart is attempting a breakout. All-in-all a decent chart.

I do not follow the coin or its fundamentals, but the price chart tells me to put it on my watch list.

Disclosure. Author does have a small bag and will consider adding if continuation materializes.

Bull Support, Bears Ready to Pounce

The first EOS weekly chart shows EOSBTC sitting on the Lower BBand which is also previous support from the last rally.

The other 2 times price broke under the Middle BBand and touched the Lower BBand it went into a larger bear market. A selloff near the numbers of the last 2 would create a 3 drives pattern. Be vigilant.

The second chart better shows the previous support bulls need to defend. If support fails then bears will be looking to short fairly hard under support based on the other 2 corrections.


Bitcoin April Rally

Is it time for BTC/USD to cool off?

Back in March Bitcoin showed itself to be pa risk-off trade because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The fear of a lack of liquidity ravaged almost all global markets. Bitcoin was not spared.

The subsequent rally throughout April has done a solid FIB retrace and the retail raid zones on the 4H & 1D charts have provided resistance zones so far.

With halving in less than 2 weeks and a near complete recovery of the sell off this will certainly entice bears to try and push their weight around again soon.

BTCUSD has been moving along with stock markets as the world is trying to calculate what is fair value and what risk is worth taking on. Bitcoin will likely be an analog of the larger marketplace because liquidity is impacted across all markets when greed or fear is at play.


Chainlink (LINK/BTC)

An algo on the loose

The pattern noted above, and some minor variations of it, are noticeable throughout the history of this market’s price history. I first noticed it while using BBands but removed them for this post because it’s far too busy looking with the extra lines.

Anatomy of the algo

After a bear market push a Head & Shoulders pattern develops as it bounces from the Lower BBand up-and-through the Upper BBand (not seen for reasons noted above). That is followed by a double top (2 pushes) with 2 strong retraces. Variations of the algo are more present on the 3rd push towards highs. The volume profile tends to echo the price action as well.

Currently there is wonky Head & Shoulders in the works with the price recently bouncing off the Lower BBand. History of the algo would suggest a bit of consolidation before picking a direction for a new measured move.
