Stellar (XLM) Cardano (ADA) Price Analysis: Game On

When volatility increases, it is often the most important time to focus on the virtues of technical analysis.

Price changes in an asset that we value often have an impact on our psychology and our emotions that is difficult to perceive and to assess. Hence, having a toolset with a defined set of rules that specifically impinge upon how we articulate to ourselves the behavior that we are seeing can act as a cornerstone for holding ourselves accountable in our decision-making as we participate in such a volatile financial market.

As such, we would suggest that the current moment in the cryptocurrency complex is a perfect application for such a cornerstone. And we will attempt to exemplify this as we take a close look at Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA).

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.24684
  • Low: $0.24255
  • 24-Hour Volume: $51.26M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -18.79%

Stellar (XLM) is one of the coins we find most interesting during this current pullback following the July bounce across the cryptocurrency complex. We noted last week that we thought this may well check back to under the $0.24 level, and at the same time thereby check back to key support at a rising 50-day simple moving average.

So, what we have here is as follows: Stellar (XLM) has been clearly outperforming most of the large market cap coins in the cryptocurrency asset class over the past six weeks. It has also done so on sharply rising average daily volume. And now, when the complex is pulling back, we are seeing Stellar (XLM) pullback to a level that appears to be a higher-low under formation, and finding support during that pullback at a key technical support measure that has shifted into a potentially bullish mode.

If this is possibly an important inflection in the broader crypto space leading to a new bull market, then one can easily forgive themselves for biasing their emphasis towards XLM given its recent behavior. In other words, it’s worth an extremely close look right now.

Cardano (ADA)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.13582
  • Low: $0.12991
  • 24-Hour Volume: $49.35M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -15.71%

Cardano (ADA) has pulled back to almost perfectly test support at its mid-July lows in the $0.12 area. This follows the pattern we have seen in many other large market cap coins over the last several days.

However, the bounce that we’ve seen over the past 12 hours in Cardano (ADA) has shown itself to be somewhat more powerful than we have seen in many other coins across the complex during that same period.

That suggests the possibility that we are nearer to some kind of selling exhaustion for Cardano (ADA). However, if we have any doubts, they are spawned by the fact that the hourly MACD indicator has already moved toward an overbought level on what has not been a dramatic bounce. We would far prefer to see the oscillators quiet at this point in the bounce.

That said, this doesn’t rule out the possibility that Cardano (ADA) could begin to show positive signs in terms of how it deals with these critical support levels.

Happy Trading~

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
