ICP → Pullback to Support Zone Over? Time to Long? Almost!

ICP ran three pushes up in an ascending wedge reaching $16.33, followed by a pullback with three pushes down and a strong bull signal. Is it time to long?


How do we trade this? 🤔

ICP → Pullback to Support Zone Over? Time to Long? Almost!

A long entry could be justified here. Here's what we have in favor of the long bias; Three pushes up in a bull channel ending at $16.33, followed by three pushes down in a micro-bear channel with strong bull signal bars, and we have a good follow-through bars leading up to the price action being just above the Daily 30EMA.

What would give us maximum justification is a re-test of the Daily 30EMA as support to add probability to our long. However, I do not believe this is required to justify a long entry.

I believe we need to be conservative longing at this stage in the crypto market, which is why I only advocate for a 1:1 scalp at a lower-than-maximum position size allowed for your trading strategy. I think Bitcoin and Ethereum have a larger pullback on the horizon, but do believe the market will come up a bit before it goes down.

The longer a trend continues after 3 legs, the probability of that trend continuing lessens. Because of this decreased probability, we ought to reduce our risk when entering trades.
