Apr 16th 2019, Crypto Chartbook

Just as Planned

Last week’s chartbook (advising a pullback as the highest probability setup) occurred as planned. Markets retraced sharply on April, 11th. The reversal signal also manifested with a candlestick “hammer” (bullish reversal) formation the following day (April 12th). Just as planned.

The hammer signal, coupled with the prior day’s sharp downward momentum, which took out the five previous days’ lows, had positive action/reaction going for it. Another edge for a long entry.

Daily reversal pattern:

This low risk opportunity  provided for a nice long setup on the 12th at an entry level of 4,980 (posted live in our Midas Touch Telegram channel).

The entry was supported by the previous day’s support/resistance zone (green line). On the exit side, risk mitigation occurred at the financing level (quad strategy – half out) at 5,065.60 (red line). Stop levels were then adjusted to break even entry level.

60 min BTC/USDT long entry, followed by partial profit taking:

Our next target was hit on the 14th of April at a price level of 5,149. Here we took another 25% of position size off the table. At this point, stop levels were adjusted to 4,993.

As can be reviewed on the following daily chart, aggressive daily entry placement followed by conservative profit taking leaves us with a small runner position (the last 25%). Now with risk mitigated, the participant is psychologically free for the weekly gap fill at best or will be stopped out with the remaining position for small profit at worse.

Just as planned, daily chart, price advancements with profits:

Can we predict the future? No, of course not. Even though it might seem like it at times… All that it really is, is making a plan and trading that plan.
