Crypto-Currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum for May 17th

I plan to cover just three cryptos every week in this post: Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. These instruments provide trading opportunities with out sized gains. I hope the analysis presented here helps you profit in these instruments.

BTCUSD — At this point stand aside from Cryptos and wait for the next long setup, sideways consolidation is possible so don’t get chopped up. Patience is key and the next setup will come in a few weeks. We exited Cryptos two weeks ago near the high.


ETHUSD – This can consolidate and we made the support test at monthly pivot at $183. Expected sideways consolidation into early June and then the next legg up. Wait for the next long setup.


LTCUSD – Monthly pivot support has been made and also the lower bollie. Looking for a marginal higher high and a sideways consolidation here. The previous target has been made, stay in cash and wait for the next long setup.


Nice profits from our call two weeks ago and the end of a text book rally. An over throw of the upper channel trend line is bearish short term and the pull back / consolidation is playing out. Play the long side and stay with the trend…. wait for the next long setup. Patience is a trading skills, nothing to do right now in Cryptos. Trade Smart and Trade Safe.
