XRPUSD Is Ranging Within $0.28 and $0.21 Levels, Awaiting a Breakout

XRP/USD Market January 06

An increase in the bears’ pressure may penetrate the $0.21 level; the price may decrease further to $0.17 and $0.10. In case the support level of $0.21 holds, the price may reverse and the resistance levels of $0.28, $0.39, and $0.49 may be tested.

Key Levels:

Resistance levels: $0.28, $0.39, $0.49

Support levels: $0.21, $0.17, $0.10

XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging

XRPUSD is on the ranging mode in the daily chart. The coin is range-bound within the resistance level of $0.28 and the support level of $0.21.  XRPUSD started the ranging movement on December 30. The bears made an attempt to break down the support level of $0.21 failed due to low bearish momentum. Today, the bears try to penetrate the resistance level of $0.28 but the level holds and the price could not break it up. Ranging movement will continue until there is a breakout.

XRPUSD-2.png XRPUSD Daily chart, January 06

XRPUSD is struggling to breakout at the two key levels but the levels hold the price. An increase in the bears’ pressure may penetrate the $0.21 level; the price may decrease further to $0.17 and $0.10. In case the support level of $0.21 holds, the price may reverse and the resistance levels of $0.28, $0.39, and $0.49 may be tested. However, the price retains its trading below 9 periods EMA and the 21 periods EMA, the former is below the later. The relative strength index period 14 is at 25 levels bending up to indicate a buy signal.

XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Ranging

On the medium-term outlook, XRPUSD remains in the ranging mode. The bears’ momentum and the bulls’ momentum are at equilibrium within the $0.28 and $0.21 levels. The support level of $0.21 is resisting the bears. The bears lose their momentum and the bulls’ pressure is equally weak. The price results in consolidation within $0.28 and $0.21 price levels.

XRPUSD-4-hour-chart.png XRPUSD 4 hour chart, January 06

The fast-moving average is interlocked with the slow-moving average. The price is hovering over the 9 periods EMA and 21 periods EMA which indicates that consolidation is ongoing. However, the relative strength index period 14 is bending up at 60 levels to indicate a buy signal.

GBPJPY Attempts Upside Advance Beyond 142.33 Level on UK’s Vaccine Rollout Optimism

GBPJPY Price Analysis – January 20

GBPJPY’s upside march attempts to advance beyond the 142.33 level with a strong impulse to test the higher barrier at
142.71 level. The optimism about the UK’s vaccine campaign and lower cases is strengthening the case for stability in Pounds Sterling.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 147.95, 144.95, 142.71
Support Levels: 140.31, 137.00, 134.40
GBPJPY-Daily-Jan-20.pngGBPJPY Long term Trend: Bullish
The GBPJPY pair has already rebounded from the weekly low of 140.35 to 142.33 levels as of today’s session and may lift further. Nonetheless, the horizontal resistance level currently around 142.26, followed by the 142.71 thresholds, challenges the GBPJPY bulls. However, bears are less likely to enter unless witnessing a clear breach beneath the moving average 13 around 141.00 level.

In the larger context, the increase from the 123.99 level is seen as an advancing phase of the sideway range trend from the 122.75 (low) level. As long as the 147.95 resistance level holds, an eventual downside breakout stays in consideration. Nevertheless, the eventual breach of 147.95 may increase the likelihood of long term bullish reversal.
GBPJPY-4-Hour-Jan-20.pngGBPJPY Short term Trend: Bullish
GBPJPY edged higher to 142.25 level last week but upside traction has been very unconvincing. Meanwhile, a sustained increase is mildly in support as long as the 140.31 support level stays intact. The present recovery from 133.04 level may aim for a test on 142.71 high level.

On the downside, however, the breach of 138.00 level may argue that the trend from 142.71 level is starting another falling phase. Intraday bias may be altered back to the downside for 134.40 support level and beneath.

Gold Price Analysis — January 29

Gold (XAU/USD) maintained its bearish tone through the early European session on Wednesday and was last spotted trading around the $1845 area. The bearish momentum was solely sponsored by a goodish uptick in the US dollar, which tends to undermine demand for the dollar-denominated commodity.

The greenback saw a fresh influx of demand amid doubts over the timing and size of the newly proposed US stimulus bill. That said, the prevalent cautious mood surrounding the equity markets has capped further declines for the precious metal in the meantime.

Market mood is currently being suppressed by the growing worries over an economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and the escalating US-China tensions in the South China Sea.

Meanwhile, the lower risk appetite bolstered a softer tone around the US Treasury bond yields, which extended additional support to the non-yielding metal. Also, market participants appear to be avoiding placing aggressive bets ahead of the FOMC monetary policy decision scheduled for release later today. This event, coupled with the release of US Durable Goods Orders data and developments surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, will be looked upon for market clues today.

This makes it advisable to wait for a sustained move to the downside before placing aggressive bets.

Gold (XAU) Value Forecast — January 29

XAU/USD Major Bias: Sideways

Supply Levels: $1860, $1875, and $1890

Demand Levels: $1838, $1827, and $1818

Gold has traded on a directionless bias over the past few days, following several failed attempts to reclaim dominance above the $1875 pivot area. However, the safe-haven asset has also fought against a sustained descent below the $1838 support, putting it in a consolidated range.

Depending on the outcome of the FOMC meeting later today, gold could finally breach the $1838 support and head towards lower support levels.

Polkadot Price Analysis — February 2

21Shares, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange-traded products (ETPs), is releasing the very first Polkadot (DOT) ETP. The company announced earlier that the new product might get listed on the Swiss SIX exchange on February 4, 2021.

The new ETP is coming just after Polkadot got added to 21Shares’ top ETP product Crypto Basket ETP (HODL) on January 29. HODL, which tracks five top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), has now removed Bitcoin Cash (BCH) from its listings and is replacing it with Polkadot as the second-largest constituent after Bitcoin.

According to a report from MVIS Indices, Polkadot now makes up 27% of all ETP, while BTC accounts for about 50% of the product.

According to a 21Shares spokesperson, the company has no say in the addition or removal of assets from the HODL ETP. The spokesperson noted that this responsibility is reserved for MV Index Solutions.

21Shares noted that the addition of Polkadot to its Crypto Basket ETP makes it the “perfect timing to add single asset ETP to the already wide range of crypto ETPs” offered.

CEO of the company, Hany Rashwan, asserted that the company remains devoted to fulfilling the demand seen from institutional investors.

DOT is a next-generation blockchain protocol, linking several specialized blockchains into one network. A few days ago, the cryptocurrency surpassed Ripple (XRP) as the fourth-largest crypto based on market cap. However, XRP has since reclaimed the spot.

At press time, DOT is trading up by about 80% in its year-to-date high.

download-17.png DOT – 4-Hour Chart

Key DOT Levels to Watch — February 2

Polkadot has been range-bound for the past few days between the 17.66 resistance to the 15.70 support. The cryptocurrency attempted another go at the 17.66 resistance some hours ago but failed to break above, once again.

That said, DOT could continue on its range-bound momentum in the coming days, considering that volatility is beginning to fade. Nonetheless, a fall below 14.80 seems very unlikely in the meantime, indicating that Polkadot could remain in its 17-day range between 18.90 and 14.80.

Meanwhile, our key resistance levels are at $17.66, $18.42, and $18.90. While our key support levels are at $16.44, $15.70, and $14.80.

Dogecoin Price Analysis — February 5

Dogecoin (DOGE/USD) saw an overnight rally of about 80%, indicating that Wall Street Bet’s crypto division still has plans for the cryptocurrency. Dogecoin came into the limelight following a 900% pump on January 28, which catapulted the meme cryptocurrency to rank as the tenth-largest cryptocurrency based on market capitalization for the first time since 2015.

As the massive rally began to lose momentum, many traders rapidly cleared their profits, as it looks like the investors are now looking for something else to invest in.

The spike was originally sparked when exchanges restricted traders from acquiring more AMC and GameStop stocks on January 28, prompting the Reddit investors to seek other investment alternatives like silver and some “cheap” cryptocurrencies.

On January 28, the Twitter user “WSB Chairman” tweeted to his 750k followers, saying “has Doge ever been to a dollar?” This question sparked a massive rally in DOGE, despite the crypto having no protocol upgrades since 2015.

Several social media influencers were very discontent with buying the top of the rally, indicating that the speculative frenzy has ended.

It is almost impossible to pinpoint the exact reason for the spikes, considering that there are several social networks, especially private Telegram groups and trading signal apps, actively participating in the price action.

That said, measuring social media activities could become the norm for speculation.

download-15.png DOGEUSD – 4-Hour Chart

Key DOGE Levels to Watch — February 5

DOGE/USD appears to have gone into consolidation between $0.0450 and $0.0350, as its bullish momentum loses steam. The cryptocurrency’s recent price action has formed a triangle pattern, indicating that a spike (to either direction) is just around the corner.

That said, we expect a retrace to the $0.350 supporting the coming hours, where a rebound to the $0.0500 round figure and higher will likely occur.

Meanwhile, our key resistance levels are at $0.0450, $0.0500, and $0.0600. While our key support levels are at $0.0350, $0.0270, and $0.0220.

AUDUSD Upside Run Holds Steady Past Mid 0.7700 Level As Risk-On Mood Undermines USD

AUDUSD Price Analysis – February 11

After it rebound from the prior week low at 0.7563 level, the AUDUSD pair has benefited from a sustained move past the MA 5 and 13 at the 0.7700 regions. The pair’s upside run continues to hold steady past the mid 0.7700 level as the underlying bias of a risk-on mood undermines the US dollar.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 0.8075, 0.7980, 0.7800
Support Levels: 0.7650, 0.7557, 0.7461
AUDUSD-Daily-Feb-11.pngAUDUSD Long term Trend: Ranging
The AUDUSD pair regained bullish traction on Thursday and reversed the prior day’s modest losses. The constructive outlook is reinforced by the bullish relative strength index on the daily charts. That said, bulls might still need to wait for some follow-through buying beyond the swing highs, around the mid 0.7700 regions, before placing new buy orders.

Above the mentioned hurdle, the AUDUSD pair seems all set to build on its recent appreciating move and aim back to reclaim the 0.7800 marks. On the flip side, the 0.7650 regions might continue to act as immediate support and are closely followed by the 0.7700 marks. A convincing break below the latter might prompt some technical selling and accelerate the slide further towards the 0.7557 horizontal support.
AUDUSD-4-Hour-Feb-11.pngAUDUSD Short term Trend: Ranging
As observed on the lower time frame, following the 0.7650 minor support intact, a sustained surge is anticipated in AUDUSD for 0.7800 resistance level. The continuous breach there may continue the total uptrend from 0.5506 level.

Meanwhile, the next near term goal is a 61.8% forecast of 0.7000 to 0.7800 levels from 0.7557 at 0.8075 levels. On the flip side, the breach of 0.7650 minor support level may delay the bullish scenario and extend the correction from 0.7800 level.

An important factor that determines your profitability (it’s not what you think)

When traders are looking for ways to become consistently profitable, they, sadly, tend to consider the wrong factors and looking for solutions in the wrong places. Yes, factors like hit rates, risk-to-reward ratios, risk control, etc. are very important to your career as a trader. Nonetheless, there is an important factor that determines your profitability, and it’s not what you think.

Know when not to trade
Yes, you need to know when to be in the markets and when to stay out of the markets. There are times when it is profitable to be in certain markets, and there are times when it is suicidal to be in such markets.
wave-1246560_960_720.jpgFor example, it is far easier to make money in bullish crypto markets, especially when Bitcoin and most other altcoins are trending upwards protractedly. During this period, traders and investors are richly rewarded.

But when Bitcoin and other altcoins begin a bearish movement that holds out longer than what most people anticipate, both traders and investors suffer, as profitability dwindles. An apt example is what happened in 2018.

When FX markets are trending strongly, all counter-trend strategies will perform poorly. When the markets are quite choppy, trend-following strategies will fail. That is why you need to understand the kind of trading system you are using and the market type you are currently engaged in.

There is no strategy that can work in all market conditions: You either develop different strategies to deal with a bull market, consolidating markets, etc. If you cannot do this, then you need to stay out of the market which is not favorable to your trading system. An impatient trader can be sliced up in the market that threatens to plummet, but which fails to do so.

You don’t need to be in a particular market always
Some people think trading is hard, and they are somewhat correct because no-one knows what the market will do next. You may think it will go in a certain direction and you will be right. Sometimes, you may think it would go in a particular direction and you will be proven wrong.
computer-3033135_960_720.jpgKnow when to trade and when not to trade. Your profitability is largely determined by how many losses you are able to avoid. Did you sustain some losses in the past? Think of how profitable you would be now if you had been able to avoid those losses.

Think of it: The more losses you have, the more your equity goes down. If you were able to avoid those losses, your equity would be saved from going down. Even when your hit rate is not very high, you will be able to go ahead by avoiding more and more losses.

There are many factors that determine a great football team, and one of the factors is the ability to concede very few goals. The fewer goals a team concedes, the better their chances of survival. The more goals they concede, the worse their chances of survival.

When a team is too desperate to win, they may charge and attack vigorously, while their defense becomes porous and vulnerable, and the opposing team may take advantage of that vulnerability.

You shouldn’t be too desperate to make profits, to the extent that you constantly find yourself in unfavorable market conditions and you take more sub-optimal trades based on poor setups, therefore scuttling your chances of profitability.

I have found ways to know when a particular market condition is favorable to my trading methodology and I take advantage of that. I have found ways to know when a market is no longer favorable to my trading method and I stay out of the market while looking for opportunities elsewhere.

What about you?

This piece is ended by the quote below:

“… If there was a game that mimicked trading it would be golf. A golf game is won by the person who makes the fewest catastrophic error and whose management of their internal game is superior to others. Incremental gains count.” – C. Tate

Silver Price: XAGUSD Stays Optimistic Under $28.00 As Bulls Gather Traction

XAGUSD Price Analysis – February 16

Silver (XAGUSD) price continues to range within the $27.00 to $28.00 region as buyers support the prospect for a move beyond the $28.00 and on the other hand, sellers need to refresh monthly low for entries. Silver is currently trading at $27.05 per ounce, representing a 0.50% loss on the day.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: $30.00, $28.90, $27.92
Support Levels: $26.77, $26.00, $25.00
XAGUSD-Daily-Feb-16.pngXAGUSD Long term Trend: Ranging
XAGUSD bulls attempted to crush January 6, 2021, old barrier around the $27.95 zone but retreated to the $26.83 level. As a result, the quote’s further upside may be challenged by a psychological horizontal line at the $27.50 level. However, if the trend stays toward breaking past $28.00 marks, the monthly peak surrounding $30.00 will be the next target.

Alternatively, a downside breach of the immediate support line, currently around $26.77 level, may take silver prices towards the low level at $26.00. However, any further weakness needs to break the yearly low of $24.01 to invalidate the XAGUSD bullish run-up.
XAGUSD-4-Hour-Feb-16.pngXAGUSD Short term Trend: Ranging
Silver’s price has staged a major technical pullback after finding resistance at the psychological $30.00 level. However, on the one hand, the price for XAGUSD could likely be pushed down by the MA 5 crossing the MA 13 lower in the $27.07 range towards the $26.00 range.

Meanwhile, the rate could gain support at the $26.77 horizontal level. And from the other hand, the white metal could likely gain support from the lower level near $26.00 in the event of a plunge. Thus, some upside potential could prevail in the market during subsequent sessions.

Have you invested in an extremely rare opportunity of a lifetime?

The Next “Buzz Word” Altcoins
Last month, the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index was at 1414.37, following a low of 217.82 in early March. BTC had made a new high yesterday at $51,630.86. Today (February 17) and the index was at 2,295.61. That’s a huge gain for one month.

Let me put this into perspective. In late 2017, I said that cryptoassets were the biggest institution revolution since the Industrial Revolution and that they represented the investment of a lifetime. Institutions, however, were not ready or capable of participating in that revolution so they “pooh-poohed” it. The SEC decided that most altcoins were securities which precipitated a huge bear market. By the end of 2018, cryptos had undergone an 85% decline and BTC hit a low price of $3,236.76 on Dec 15, 2018. But then look what happened.
analytics-3265840_960_720.jpgBTC was up 92.71% in 2019
It was up 305.94% in 2020
And it’s up 75.42% in less than 50 days of 2021….

What did I say in 2018? There was actually a period from October through November last year when I made over $3 million in 7 weeks. Cryptos are the investment of a lifetime.

While BTC could go up another 10 fold in the long run, I doubt that it will go much over $100,000 this year…. But the opportunity of a lifetime is not over because now the altcoins are starting to move. Here are a few examples, and this is just the movement in 2021.

BNB 289%
ETH 144%
LINK 178%
SNX 215%
AAVE 397%
CND 145%

And remember those gains are just from the 48 days of 2021….

You can purchase crypto coins here.  

Update on Cryptoassets
I think that there are a number of altcoins that could go up 10 times or more during the rest of 2021. Now we might have a decline of 40% or more during the year, but it probably will be short-lived with a very quick recovery…
meadow-75050_960_720.jpgBTC was up 92.7% in 2019, 305.94% in 2020, and in the first six weeks of 2021, it’s up 74.22%. Let’s contrast that with the other hedge against the USD and disaster, gold. Gold was up 20.94% in 2019, up 18.32% in 2020, and it’s down 5.1% so far in 2021. The path of safety is now BTC.

Gold has about 10 times more market cap than cryptos right now (even though cryptos are now over a trillion for the 1st time). If all of the money in gold went into BTC, BTC’s price would be about $370,000…

People talk about BTC being volatile and risky. But where can you find something that has made over 1,000% in 3 of the last 11 years, over 100% in 8 of them, and had only two losing years? There is only one other place than BTC with anywhere near equal performance – other cryptoassets.

Remember these are 30-day percent gains. This is probably the easiest market possible to make a lot of money. You could, however, just as easily enter a position and immediately have a 25% drawdown – which could cause you to exit and then miss out on some nice gains. If you don’t have strong beliefs about cryptos like I do, crypto volatility will test you…

This newsletter makes no recommendations about cryptos but is a free service… I personally own positions in most of the cryptos mentioned in this newsletter.

Ethereum Classic Price Analysis — March 1

Ethereum Classic (ETC) traded with a mild bullish momentum in the early trading hours on Monday, as the cryptocurrency market slowly recovers from last week’s crash. The crash caused Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies to fall by double-digits under a few hours. At press time, ETC is trading at $10.80, up by about 3.3% on the day.

That said, the cryptocurrency market crash occurred in tandem with the entire legacy market. News reports show that Nasdaq 100 recorded its biggest slump since October last year, as US Treasury bond yields bolstered market mood.

The cryptocurrency market’s correlation with traditional financial markets and some of the largest indices, including the NASDAQ Composite and the S&P 500, is becoming increasingly glaring. Nonetheless, the cryptocurrency market took a massive beating last week, as it saw more than $300 billion get shaved off its valuation.

However, not all cryptocurrencies had a red weekend. Cardano (ADA) appeared to be unfazed by the bearish conditions surrounding the market and kept rising.

Meanwhile, the recent market correction can be construed as a healthy and necessary one, considering that the market had been on a parabolic bull run for several weeks before now. Naturally, investors begin to take out profits as markets get overleveraged, like what we just witnessed.

Key ETC Levels to Watch — March 1

ETC is currently recovering from last week’s battering, which sent the fifty-fifth-largest cryptocurrency near the $9 area. That said, the cryptocurrency is trading below a descending trendline and has to break above this line to continue on this bullish momentum. This trendline is coinciding with the $11 psychological level, making it a crucial resistance for ETC.

Nonetheless, Ethereum Classic is currently deep in oversold conditions on our 4-hour chart, indicating that we could see a return to neutral levels (at least) on our MACD indicator in the coming days. This technical indication, coupled with the prevailing recovery mode across the crypto market, should boost the ETC in today’s session.

Meanwhile, our key resistance levels are at $11.00, $12.00, and $12.46. While our key support levels are at $10.57, $10.00, and $9.00.

Total Market Capitalization: $1.45 trillion

Ethereum Classic Market Capitalization: $1.2 billion

Ethereum Classic Dominance: 0.08%

    • Date : 5th March 2021. Market Update – March 5 – Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. What Fed Chair Powell did not say that shook up the markets. Wall Street turned sharply lower following Fed Chair Powell’s remarks, even though it was not what he said but what he did not mention that undermined equity sentiment. Specifically, he did not push back against the recent surge in Treasury rates. Indeed, he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move, providing tacit approval for the run-up in longer dated yields. Consequently, the stock market was dragged lower once again thanks to rising rates and expectations for more of the same as the economy and inflation pick-up further. Headlines:   The Chair’s comments that he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move were not in the market’s narrative. Fed Chair Powell’s perceived benign neglect of the surge in bond yields weighed on Treasuries and extended the recent selloff back toward the highs from February 25. The US 10-year rate corrected slightly overnight but remains at 1.56%. The 10-year rate is currently down -5.3 bp at 0.079%, while yields jumped 6.0 bp and 7.5 bp in Australia and New Zealand respectively. The tech-heavy USA100 over -3% lower intraday, with spill over to the broader indexes. However, the losses were pared in late trading with closing declines of -2.11% on the USA100, -1.34% on the USA500, and-1.11% on the USA30. JPN225 and ASX were still down -0.2% and -0.7% respectively at the close. BoJ’s Kuroda sees no need to widen yield band. He said there is no need to widen the implicit band set for its long term yield target, while stressing the need to keep borrowing costs low to support the economy. Oil prices jumped higher after the OPEC+ meeting decided to maintain current output levels. The USOIL is currently trading at USD 64.60 per barrel. In Europe, key central bankers have also played down the rise in rates and signalled that the central bank won’t add additional measures next week that would reverse the rise in rates. Verbal intervention and a flexible use of PEPP purchases will likely be used to smooth an uptrend that most central bankers seem to feel is essentially justified, given the improved outlook for growth later in the year.

    • Similarities between trading and poker, in both, you try to make optimal decisions on the basis of incomplete information. Money management (trading) and bankroll management (poker) are very similar - both are crucial to manage risks. Because in both, you have a luck/variance factor, without the right money management even the best strategy can lead to being broke without the right money management.
    • Forex stands for foreign exchange and refers to the buying or selling of one currency in exchange for another. It's the most heavily traded market in the world because people, businesses, and countries all participate in it, and it's an easy market to get into without much capital.
    • crazyCza and crazyZdo always love a fresh new thread ... from 2013     78% losers, 19% survivors, 3% thrivers - the cusps ... Generally speaking, most people who begin to “learn” to trade quickly experience that losses and mistakes seem to have a nasty tendency to be disproportionately way more costly than wins and being right are beneficial. There are so many other endeavors where that does not seem to be the case... so they move on.  Few persist in their “learning”  to pass the cusp where they can turn that (accurate for some systems, inaccurate for others) enigmatic impression and their performance to neutral / surviving ... and then even fewer persist ‘again’ even more assiduously to  turn wins and being right to being disproportionately more profitable than the losses and mistakes are costly...  Furthermore, most people don’t believe or see the necessity to ”learn” just as much about themselves as they do about objective trading methods, etc.  Most never realize that doing a ‘dual major’ in Self and Methods is required to get a good trading education and "learn" to trade. ... and, many who do realize the need still flunk out of one of the majors and never “learn” to trade.  Only a few persist in and complete both ‘majors’ ...
    • https://pjmedia.com/columns/john-stossel/2021/03/03/mike-rowe-everyone-is-essential-n1429583 “If everything we do saves just one life, I’ll be happy.” is a little example of the narrative being on completely out of phase with reality.  Cuomo, instead of saving lives, cost lives, caused needless suffering and loss.  The whole plandemic is a prime  example of the narrative being on completely out of phase with reality.   ... just sayin'
