ApeCoin: the 100X Coin Everyone Knows About

Long
COINBASE:APEUSD   ApeCoin
APEUSD

ApeCoin has caught my attention recently. Mostly because it's flashing bullish signals with a foreseeable 10X -- if not higher -- upside. So let's check off the speculative prediction before I dive into my 1W chart analysis.

With a max token supply of 1 billion tokens and a market cap of only $585M USD at the time of this idea, it's my opinion that ApeCoin could see some serious gains in the anticipated bull market. At only 1B tokens, if ApeCoin secures a market cap of $5 billion USD then its single token price would be a whopping $5.00 -- a 217% gain from the APE's current value ($1.58). While $5 billion is nothing to shrug your shoulders at, that is a relatively small market cap in crypto. I won't even compare this to Bitcoin or Ethereum since they are blockchains and on a whole different tier, but in comparison to other tokens such as Shiba Inu ($4.84B) or Doge ($11.5B), APE has a lot of room to grow.

Typically tokens with this type of potential are new and extremely risky, and while there is always an inherent risk when investing in crypto, ApeCoin already has a solid reputation due to its celebrity-backed NFT collection, Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

Okay, now for the 1W chart analysis:

As of late October '23, the volume has began to increase with a rising token value that's nearly doubled since its low of $0.98. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) indicator shows a positive slope which suggests an increase in buying pressure with a Money Flow Index (MFI) that is resting in neutral territory.

I've drawn out a projected Cup & Handle pattern with a cup profit target near $6.43 and a handle purchase target around $3.72. Should this pattern continue and become a valid Cup & Handle, I believe a breakout target of $9.17 is both likely and reasonable since the depth of the cup has a price range of $5.45. I did not annotate it on the chart but if the Cup & Handle completes then it will also form an Inverse Head & Shoulders (the head = cup and the right shoulder = handle).

I think it goes without saying that there will be plenty of short-term trading opportunities during this pattern formation and, while I am optimistic on an approaching crypto bull market, there is always the chance of market sentiments turning south. Regardless, APE has most certainly caught my attention as a bright short-term and long-term investment opportunity.
