•Why you are optimistic about this token today, and how long do you u wish it can rise.


The truth is am not planning to hold this coin for long time. The analysis i have made is for intraday trading and it's for a short position. When the price reach my profit target as i have set it, the position will execute it self but unfortunately, this trade has gone against my prediction and i made a loss.


•How to analyze the token? (This can technical analysis and trading strategies learned from professor's courses) - This section is very important.


For the reason of this trade, i have traded AAVE/USD using using the Bollinger band and Relative Strength Index for my analysis while i make used of mt4 chart.

MT4 chart

When you look at the above chart, you will see that i have make used of an indicator called Bollinger band and this is one of the indicators we learnt in the past in the Crypto Academy lesson. The band selves as a support and resistance of price in both phases of the market either bull or bear market.
The settings can be seen below:

MT4 chart

The truth is you can not succeed the market by only using the Bollinger band but i have equally added the Relative Strength Index to get proper entry and exit criteria. Below is the screenshot of the RSI settings:

MT4 chart

Period: 14
Apply to: Close
Style : 2pixel
Level: 70,30

The RSI levels is an important point where traders can make informed decisions about the the next trend or movement of price in the price chart. At point 70, the price is over bought and at point 30, the price is at it over sold region.

Now the combination of the Bollinger band and the RSI give us and edged in the market because the both indicators tells us the next trend in the market.

How to place a trade using Bollinger Band and RSI indicators

In a bullish market, when you see the price closes above the band, and we have a red candlestick retracement back into the band and closes inside the band, at this point you should go short in the market. Your stop loss should be places above the previous high of the last candle wick and take profit should be at the next support level. Note, the RSI must be at point 70 or above 70 before you can take the trade.

For my short position, i have open a sell stop position. This mean that the market has passed this point, so when the market trend down to that point it will trigger my entry as seen below:

MT4 chart

Entry Price: 202.79
Stop loss: 207.72
Take Profit: 179.86
Risk to Reward Ratio: 1:1

How to calculate the take profit:

Stop loss price - Entry price = xx - Entry Price =TP

That is: $207.72 - $202.97 =$4.93

$202.79 - $4.93 = $197.86

R:R =1:1

The market went against my entry, and i made a loss of -$2.61 as seen in the screenshot below.

MT4 chart

You should understand that even if you have any amount of money, you can not move the market. The market is been moved by the big boy or the big banks. What you have to do is to follow the trend and you should not be expecting to make gain always that is why we where told to invest cash we can bear the lost. It is always advisable to buy assets at lower price but most times, traders find it difficult to understand the trend of the market as well ass reversal that is why the indicators i have used can be helpful to you.


•Your plan to hold it for a long time or when to sell.


I don't have it in mind to hold this trade for too long, once thee market decrease more than where i sold the asset, i will sell the trade. For now the trade has reverse to hit my stop loss and it has closed the trade with a lose of -$2.61


•Do you recommend everyone to buy this token? Give reasons for your answer.


I will say yes to this, i will recommend anyone who whish to hold to do so because AAVE is the No 48 coin in the coinmarketcap and now the market price is down so i recommend investors to buy and hold AAVE now to sell and make returns in future come 2026 based on statistics. The risk involved here is the ability to have patience and hold the coin to raise, but you are not advice to invest cash you can not loss.


•Any other thing you might want to share about this coin/token.


AAVE is the number 48 Crypto leading coin all trader will like to have. Based on its popularity and growth, the coin has been ranked as number 48 coin in the coinmarketcap.


In this task, i have successfully carried out analysis on AAVE on MT4 chart and i have open a sell stop order position on my MT4 exchange platform. This is the 2nd day of the contest for this week.

Thank you very much for your time
