AVAX → Avalanche Falls to $30! Heading Back to $50?

AVAX landed just north of our final take profit target of $30 from my last analysis, a perfect drop and profit after three pushes up in a bull trend. Avalanche has been sideways since, are we ready to go back up?


How do we trade this? 🤔

AVAX → Avalanche Falls to $30! Heading Back to $50?
We had three pushes up in a bull trend; the third push made contact with a major 2021 resistance area, followed by two strong bear candles closing on their lows below the Daily 30EMA. We tested the 30EMA as resistance followed by a strong bear bar closing on or near its low on April 9th. That was our confirmation to enter the short down to $27, we took profits just north of $30 where the run ended. This completed a two-legged pullback, which is a signal that the price may want to re-test $50 and beyond.

We've had several attempts to break that low since and found ourselves in a nice trading range. The longer a trading range continues, the greater the chance the price will reverse direction from the price action to the left of the range. With Bitcoin in a nice pullback and seeming to want another run for $74,000, AVAX is likely to follow toward the upside. Wait for a strong bull candle to close on or near its high at this level, then enter a 1:2 Risk/Reward trade, taking half profits at 1:1 R/R ($42.000). Move the stop loss up to the entry price and swing the latter half of the position to $49.00, just before the left resistance area.

💰 Trading Tip 💰
It's reasonable to take half profits at the first resistance target in a long trade, or the first support target in a short trade. Using a 1:1 Risk/Reward Ratio for your first target, you can move your stop loss up to your entry price, locking in profits. This allows you to watch the rest of the trade execute without worry of losing money. This helps improve trading psychology and the equity in your account.
