The BLK/BTC is still in the long term downward channel. The price broke away from the pattern briefly on 27 and 28 Janaury before rejected from the year high price of 0.00004456. At 0.00004456BTC, this would represent a 100% increased from the year low price of 0.00002226 last transacted at January 04 2017. BLK pulled back into below Leading Span B line and now heading back to the northward direction settled at last price at 0.00003422. The BLK/BTC price gain 6% on yesterday trading. The last price is currently advanced above Leading Span B line at the price zone of 0.00003287 which reflecting a possible continuation upward trending. The next price hurdles could be found at 0.0000377 and 0.00004122 resistance levels. BLK/BTC bull will have to sustain on top side of 0.00004122 for another round of price pump.

However, the important Conversion Line or Tenkan-sen had fallen below Base Line or Kijun-sen indicates an invalidate leaning. The price charge towards or passed Leading Span A would have to breach support band of 0.00002950 to confirm a bearish momentum. Nonetheless, the next support line of 0.00002474 would form a double bottom. This will verify the range bound pattern. But the ADX is endorsing a strong trending market. Please check below for the important price zones.

Overall, due to the recent refresh BTC and BLK/BTC activities, I would suspect BLK is poised for more exciting trading in the coming days. Is the altcoin pumper returning to Blackcoin? There are signs pointing to more busy BLK/BTC trading soon. The price is restless to breakout away from the current channel.

Trading Idea : I am bull bias in the short term. The high ADX is showing a strong trend. If you are more conservative type of trader, you can wait until Tenkan-sen flow pass the Kijun-sen on the upside before enter long position.


But remember set take profit and cut lose ratio to 1:3.
