Crypto Trade Prediction Turns Bad!

in #cryptocurrency6 years ago

Cryptocurrency trade predictions don't always work as intended even when taking all the steps to identify an uptrend based on past movement patterns.

Any cryptocurrency news or event can completely disturb the prediction, and I failed to identify this in this trade prediction I am going to share with you.

Crypto Trade Prediction Turns Bad!

On November 30 I made a prediction and trading plan for a cryptocurrency named Obsidian (ODN) in my trading journal on the Digital Currency Trader forum where I am a student.

This blog post is part of my personal trading journal that I share with you hoping it is useful. I am a student of the Cryptocurrency Trading Course by Digital Currency Trader that you can join to learn with me.

ODN/BTC Trade Prediction and Outcome

After looking at different charts and trying to find a favorable 1-2-3 bottom formation, I came across Obsidian (ODN) on Cryptopia and decided to give it a go.

This was the chart for ODN/BTC as I saw it on November 30.

We can clearly see one full 1-2-3 bottom formation and another one in formation, indicating that this should go up. The moving averages also had just crossed indicating a change in the trend.

The plan was to enter the trade where you see the first "$" sign, when it touches the lower trend line and forms the second 1-2-3 bottom formation. It was then to buy more at each "$" sign has it progresses upward. 

I bought before it touched the lower line and from there it moved between two parallels showing indecision in the market.

Then, it went down instead of up as I predicted. I exited the trade before it goes to deep and suffered a small loss.

It went much lower as you can see.

Many cryptocurrencies are in a down trend now due to people selling their altcoins and buying into Bitcoin waiting for the next Bitcoin forks. 

Apparently there is a Bitcoin Platinum hard fork (BTCPLT) on 12 December, a Super Bitcoin hard fork (SBTC) on 15 December, and finally a Bitcoin Uranium hard fork (BUM) on 31 December, according to this article:

This throws out of the window any prediction based on past chart patterns.

The good thing is that it's going to be altcoin shopping time very soon, what I just have to do is identify another good 1-2-3 bottom formation that this time would certainly be early January after all the crazy forks have been completed.

Technical Analysis are very helpful when determining a price point of entry.

However, the market isn't just about what you know, but what everyone knows. It's key to keep up on breaking news and such. Many others could of had the same mindset as you but switched to sell with the recent unfolding of bitcoin. Spooking others and causing the turnaround that you saw in ODN.

Good analysis though and there's no such thing as a bad trade, just another learning experience!

Thank you very much for your comment @luu78. You are right, another learning experience. The trade in itself was not bad, just the prediction.
