BTC XBT SPX XMR early updates 3 2 18 8:15 AM EST

NOTE:   HIGH PROB WE’RE AT A KEY POINT IN THE CRYPTO MARKET WAVE CYCLE

Over the last several weeks, we have been contacted numerous times for special request ST altcoin trade charts, and we like to share those with subs when they are mod to high prob — and we have found almost none worth sharing (see note on ZCL / Bitcoin Private trade below for important details)

We know it’s a lot more exciting when we do multiple real time updates and offer high prob ST trades that keep most or all of your crypto funds invested — but we’re in a new game now with the wall street big boys and our job is to show you the SAFEST HIGHEST PROB trades because KEEPING PROFIT is more important than trading–and the last two months SAFE > profitable.

With all that said — it might be time to get back to more frequent posts and trade opportunities — so do your research and be prepared!

BTC AT BREAKOUT LEVELS

Charts below cover all the keys — there are mixed signals but a mod/high prob we’re going to see more BIG MOVES — currently SLIGHT EDGE TO BULLS—that could confirm or fail as soon as TODAY–more likely they play games on weekend when fewer are watching–just be ready with a clearly defined trading plan whenever.

In addition, there are important changes for BTC and XBT futures vs the US stock market (charts below) that mean SOMETHING — for now we know that SOMETHING is VOLATILITY — more clues will come soon to get a stronger trading edge….

ALTCOINS CONTINUE TO LAG — XMR SAYS THAT COULD CHANGE

It’s simply not safe trading to have all your crypto funds in BTC — we’ve shown you over and over anything can happen at ANY time — XMR chart below shows details and we have not seen XMR move by itself vs the other key large altcoins so well worth watching no matter what altcoins you trade.

THE ZCL/BITCOIN PRIVATE (BTCP) TRADE — How’d you do?

This was a trade we did share, and you could have already made or lost 50% based on how you handled it.  There was much to learn on this trade no matter how you did and since it was speculative we can only hope you chose your position size carefully.

THE BIG TAKEAWAY:  We shared that we saw IT/LT potential in a Bitcoin privacy coin so the idea was to HODL THROUGH THE FORK–even though it went up 33-50% after we shared the trade depending on your entry (which was a good trade to take some off if you chose to!)

If you did hodl, you might feel like you lost a bunch of money because ZCL dropped 80% after the fork (though it came back strong before fading).

But did you lose money if you did hodl?  PROBABLY NOT — in fact you are set for great potential returns!

You were able to get some value selling ZCL after the fork and now you’ll have BTCP to trade or hodl in a few days that we think should see prices of $100 or more (we see potential for much more) at some point — maybe right away — so if you bought dips — this one could be a home run for you — the trade is far from over….

AND WE THINK THE TRADING OPPORTUNITIES MOVING FORWARD ARE EXCELLENT — this is one to watch carefully in our opinion– at least ST/IT

So much to learn from this trade!!  We’ll do a separate post on it at some point.  Let us know how you handled it at cryptopatterns@gmail.com

BTC XRP crypto market early updates 2 10 18 10:30 AM EST

NOTE:  First it was BCH and ZEC that broke out way above rest of market– yesterday DASH and XRP showed relative strength – -this is a sign market in “rotation” where THEY are getting in and out of positions maximizing profits across the large crypto market.

Meanwhile, while different altcoins are showing relative strength — BTC and large altcoins continue to move in sync (all moving UP) and all are showing the same basic pattern (an inverse head and shoulders) on the 30 minutes with targets between 10-25% above current levels.

TAKEAWAY — Current price action supports entering trades when SAFE risk return ratio is available (like at BTC 8400 range–see chart below). But that we’re far from a confirmed bullish wave and position management by taking some profit along the way is the highest prob ST/IT trading at this time.

WHAT ABOUT THE US STOCK MARKET?

We think (=know) that it was much more than a coincidence that stocks and cryptos were moving in sync several days in a row earlier this week — the last two days things changed a bit but we still believe this means something and must be watched — see SPX Stock futures chart below for more details.

3 CHARTS – SAFE ST TRADES AVAILABLE — REMEMBER CLOSE IS WHAT MATTERS

NOTE:  Small divergence between BTC and XRP patterns — XRP is EDGE to BULLS while BTC is NO TRADING EDGE ST with a SLIGHT EDGE TO BULLS IT  BTC IS KING so we have to respect red close today = high prob more downside.  That said, XRP is a key high volume altcoin and unless it’s going to skyrocket all by itself supports the bullish case for BTC and altcoins — at least IT.

TRADE STRATEGY Watch closer to close today and if BTC closing above yesterday’s high – look for SAFE entries on the cryptos that fit your trade strategy.  Be sure to DEFINE RISK and plan to take some profits along the way.

If BTC closes red — best to continue IT/LT strategy only and back to sidelines for any ST trades at this time.  May want to scale out of positions earlier if we continue to drop towards $8000 BTC level until a higher prob pattern emerges (but close is what matters!).

NOTE: This chart should show an arrow pointing downward after current retest as well — there is ALWAYS a bullish and bearish case!!

BTC XBT ZEC crypto market wrap Vol 10 Issue 3 2 7 18 11:45 PM EST

NOTE:  HIGH PROB BIG MOVES ARE COMING.

How do we know?  See the charts from early updates and below — as we post this we are at breakout levels of the bullish pattern for BTC and most large altcoins larger pattern AND we are right at pattern failure levels for the incredibly bearish higher high reversal pattern we saw at the close today (see charts below).

Something’s gotta give — but there’s more….

XBT futures closed BULLISH while everything else you can trade in the universe closed bearish while at the same time there are clear indicators that lower prices are “high prob” for several altcoins (which may mean the entire crypto market if we’re staying in sync).

Again, something’s gotta give….AND NOW THERE’S EVEN MORE

ZEC just broke it’s bearish pattern creating pattern failure while we’re writing this!  Doesn’t mean it can’t fall back in to pattern by close because we know CLOSE IS WHAT MATTERS — but come on — the crypto market is moving up strong against a powerful bearish pattern — is it a headfake?? See charts below.

SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE

WHAT SHOULD TRADER’S DO?  STAY SAFE OF COURSE — BUT THERE’S MORE…

  • Prepare for volatility — they are not going to make this easy for bulls or bears
  • Find a defined trade and if you get your entry TRADE IT — we met bullish targets on the small patterns yesterday and now bearish patterns are failing?  If you’re not going to enter trades now — it’s high prob your too afraid to trade which means time to take a hard look at your position sized and STOP LOSS RANGES — you must be willing to lose if you’re going to win long term!!
  • If we drop hard — DO NOT PANIC — scale back positions if you need to for more confidence– they could take price all over the place — you’ll need wider stops or the ability to reenter (possibly multiple times) if you’re stopped out and price rebounds.
  • Know there will be many other opportunities to catch the bus if we’re bullish — You don’t need to go all-in here.  IF we move up strong, this is still high prob Bull WAVE 1 at best — that means a likely hard retrace for Wave 2 — stay cool — take some profits if you get them — that’s the way to STAY SAFE and STAY IN THE GAME long term.

4 CHARTS — SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE — BE READY FOR ANYTHING (this means prepare for the bull AND the bear case — it could go either way and it’s likely to go BIG!!)

TWTR Twitter SOYB Soybeans real time updates 7 26 17 10:25 AM EST

NOTE:  As we deal with uncertainty and volatility in crypto, this is an ideal time to share some examples from other markets that can show you just how challenging successful trading can be.

TWTR

If you’re new to trading you might not be familiar with quarterly earnings announcements — it’s another way THEY can manipulate price to make even more money off of weaker traders and investors.  Earnings are announced before or after market hours and usually create a lot of volatility (EXAMPLE: Netflix just jumped 20+ points in a single day on their earnings and it’s price is already sky high).

So if you’re currently invested in TWTR — anything can happen tomorrow so today is a good time to make sure you have a clear trading plan so you can trade with confidence

twtr real time 7 26

SOYB

If you check our prior post on soybeans (chart again at bottom here) we shared it as a “bullish momentum” trade that appeared to be well on it’s way to new highs in BULLISH WAVE 3.  Guess THEY saw our post because in the short time since we posted it price

GAPPED DOWN 10-20 POINTS one day right at the open — jumping traders stop losses which then got taken out right at the lows — then price recovered a little bit during normal trading hours.

THEN THEY

GAPPED PRICE UP 10-20 POINTS the next day destroying anyone who went short on what appeared to be a Wave 3 pattern failure…

THEN THEY

ERASED THE ENTIRE 10-25 POINT GAP during trading hours putting price back to near the $1000 level where it once again was higher probability Wave 3 Pattern Failure — current trading is now below $1000 but Soybeans is in “no man’s land” where it’s nearly impossible to know it’s next move.

KEY TAKEAWAY — THEY can take price wherever they want — at ANY time.

KEY TAKEAWAY  2– Soybeans are no riskier than crypto — TRADE SAFE and stay in the game!

NOTE:  Here’s another educational opportunity to illustrate

BROKEN PATTERNS CREATE BIG MOVES THE OTHER WAY.  The fact it MAY be tradeable is a potential bonus 🙂  However — we do not have trend or wave analysis here so this would only make sense as a VST or ST trade until further prep is performed — if you want to do it we’ll gladly post it and share our views as well….
