Monero Price Analysis: Price Stable, XMR is Bullish above $100

36 hours after hard forking and Monero buyers are yet to confirm Oct 15 gains. If anything, there seems to be resistance for upsides and this is negative for bulls. Anyhow, we suggest aggressive buyers to load at spot prices with stops at $190 while risk-averse traders should be on the side lines until there are gains above $150. Such gains will most likely trigger a torrent of buyers aiming at $300 and higher.Latest Monero NewsTalk of privacy coins won’t leave Monero out and for good reasons. While the coin is not short of opposition, Monero is one of the most liquid and capitalized coin around. It’s on the top 10 meaning it’s an on-demand. However, that’s not what we are after. A coin is only as good as the team that is working behind it. From GitHub and the release by Monero Labs, it is obvious that Monero is one of the most active coins around.And there we are, transactions using Bulletproofs are now live on Monero mainnet https://t.co/Lag7K0j1r5— Howard Chu (@hyc_symas) October 18, 2018Yesterday’s hard fork went on to cement the general objective of the coin: that of reinvigorating its mission of providing privacy and safeguarding the interest of users. With Bullet proofs, Monero is now cheaper to use because what they did is reduce the size of transaction size from 13.5 KB to 2.5 KB which in proof of work system translates to reduction of network fees. Aside from that, the team went ahead and increased the number of rings from seven to 11 further enhancing the privacy of the network.Another stand out about Monero is their mission of rejecting ASIC miners in their midst. To achieve this rather hard duty, the team regularly update the core, evolving before the designers behind Bitmain’s miners ran havoc by centralizing the network. By itself, this is problematic and an existential threat to the network.Monero Price AnalysisWeekly ChartMonero Price AnalysisTwo things are visible from the weekly chart. First, the simple fact that XMR is oscillating within a tight range marked by $75 on the lower side and $150 on the upsides. Secondly, the last two months or so price action has failed to break and close above or below week ending Aug 5 and 12 high lows.This means after 10 weeks of higher highs, bulls are yet to reverse two weeks of sell pressure meaning bears are technically in charge and we could possibly see XMR drift towards $75 or Aug lows.However, given the length of consolidation in lower time frames, conservative set of traders should stay on the sidelines waiting for conclusive breaks above $150—for buyers to be in control, or below $75 as prices melt down towards $20.Daily ChartMonero Price AnalysisBack to the daily chart and the last few days price action could be positive for price. After all, Monero prices are down more than 80 percent following this year’s strong price correction, and Fibonacci retracement rules hints of upward pressure around these price tags.Anyway, we retain a bullish outlook in lower time frames as long as prices are trending inside Oct 15 high low and above $100.Like in our last Monero price analysis, bulls should load at spot prices with stops at Oct 15 lows at around $190. Any sharp losses revert us back to neutral but should there be momentum then our first targets would be at $150.Disclaimer: Views and opinions expressed are those of the author and aren’t investment advice.

Altcoins Price Analysis: Coins Ready to Rally as ADA, Stellar, Litecoin Reject Bears

While Litecoin might be a “relic” according to Tushar Jain, their developers are ready to slash transaction costs by a factor of 10 once Litecoin core 0.17 goes live. The release date is tentative but what we know for sure is that EOS trade volume are roughly five percent that of Ethereum. Besides, it’s prone to congestion all thanks to the introduction of Block Producers who often collude locking out “outsiders”.Let’s have a look at these charts:EOS Price AnalysisAccording to reports, there is a CPU problem in EOSIO and sources show that it’s not unusual for network users to stake 95 percent of their total EOS between CPU and bandwidth. The reason has been found to be due to general Block Producer operation configurations where the network congests once 20ms of CPU block time is hit.EOs Transaction Volumes This shift of EOSIO staking algorithm could explain why there is a lot of coin staking going on in EOS where it is not unusual for network users to stake 100 percent of their coin just to use a similar amount for free transactions. While ordinary network users don’t earn interest for their EOS stakes, Block Producers are actively colluding and earning transaction confirmation rewards despite the network’s low transaction volumes and high odds of network congestion.EOS Price AnalysisBack to price action and the coin is likely to end the week on a high after printing 4.8 percent. Though prices are stable in the last day, our previous price forecast still hold going forward and still we expect bulls to reign over the weekend.Our reasoning is simple. Notice that sellers did fail to reverse Oct 15 gains. At the same time, these losses were accompanied by light volumes. As such, we remain optimistic but before we suggest trades, buyers must first rally and close above $7. Thereafter, we shall recommend buys on dips with first targets at $9.Litecoin Price AnalysisNetwork transactions fees are in place to protect the network from spam. Aside from that they create this hierarchy of demand for miners where those who pay higher would most likely get a slot in a block. These transaction fees fluctuate but Litecoin is taking the lead trying to suppress costs. In their next release–Litecoin Core 0.17, developers want to slash these fees by a factor of 10 to $0.005.Litecoin Price AnalysisPrice wise and Litecoin is a top performer in the last day. It’s up 1.3 percent according to statistics but bulls are yet to edge above Oct 15 highs. Like before, we retain a neutral but bearish stand aware that gains above $70 would usher in conservative traders eyeing $90 and $110.In the mean time, risk-off, aggressive type of traders stand a chance of profiting if enough momentum build up and bulls close above $60. This is Oct 11 highs and a minor resistance level as far as our analysis is concerned. Rallies above $60 shall trigger aggressive bulls eyeing for $70 and $90, the upper limit of our resistance zone.Stellar Lumens Price AnalysisStellar Lumens Price AnalysisOn a weekly basis, Stellar Lumens is up 17 percent taming bears as a result. However, in the last day, price movements have been tight. In fact, what we have in the daily chart is a doji bar hinting at possible indecision. Regardless, our previous XLM trade plan is valid and until we see strong gains above 25 cents, neutral stand shall prevail. But, considering the accumulation of the last three days it’s likely that bulls may close higher today. That’s why we are expectant of Oct 15 follow through before the close of this week.Tron Price AnalysisTron Price AnalysisDespite lower lows in the last day, it’s clear that TRX is still bullish. It’s up 15 percent in the last day and encouragingly, prices are still trending inside Oct 15 bull bar.That’s what we retain a bullish outlook expecting buyers to accumulate in lower time frames, build momentum and explode above Sep highs triggering bulls in line with our last Tron price analysis.From our candlestick formation which informs our conclusion, it’s clear that as long as TRX prices are trading above 2 cents, bulls are in charge. Should sellers clear them today then this optimistic projection is null and void.Cardano Price AnalysisCardano Price AnalysisLike Tron, ADA is stable in lower time frames and up eight percent in the last week. Overly, this is positive for buyers. From the chart, Cardano buyers might follow through and cross above the minor resistance trend line and 9.5 cents triggering buys in line with our previous Cardano trade plan. However, before that happens, it’s advisable for traders to take a wait-and-see approach instead of fronting bulls in an openly bearish market.Disclaimer: Views and opinions expressed are those of the author and aren’t investment advice.
