The market reach its all-time high back in June this year when FTC/BTC (Factom) reached 0.01463162. Unfortunately, the pair wasn’t able to sustain its momentum. It created a lower high several days later at 0.01066744 which signalled investors to take profits or cut their losses. As a result, the market tumbled and lost 93.17% in value from its all-time high. Such a tremendous loss would have created an atmosphere of despair in the market. Usually, that’s when the savviest traders come in.
Technical analysis reveals that the worst is behind the pair. FCT/BTC touched support at 0.001 on the daily chart twice and respected it on both occasions. This is a good indication that the market has found a reliable support level. In addition, hourly chart shows that a large reversal pattern is underway. The pair may have retreated when it nearly touched 0.002, but it generated a new higher low in the process at 0.00156566. The throwback is a bullish signal that enables the pair to gather momentum to break resistance at 0.002.
The strategy is buy on breakout at 0.002. Breach that level and the market reclaims 0.003. Sell that level because it is a strong resistance.
