Ripple - What to expect?

So the idea is to draw the correct resistance and support lines, why is it so important? If you get them right you will know exactly what will happen next, everything will work out like magic. But is there a right and wrong? Isn't it subjective? Nope, not even close. Computer algorithms -- which control the bulk of the trading capital -- are programmed with the knowledge and the help of trading experts. The same system has worked in other asset classes so it is used here as well. If you figure out the lines of support and resistance you'll know which move is the likeliest to happen next. First, you have to find the primary trendline , then the secondary and lastly the minor trend. Now that you know this let's dive into XRP.

In this chart, you only see the secondary and the minor trend, the primary is too large to show, with that said the primary trendline shows XRP going slightly down, unlike BTC which is showing a strong uptrend primary, this should be a cause for concern for Ripple traders. The secondary line is showing a pretty aggressive downslope which puts the breaks on for me. The minor trend which is over, for now, made an impressive run. It is now at the very top of the secondary downtrend channel , not a good time to buy for the short term holder, why? We never buy tops. Ripple should be rejected soon by the top of the channel. The best approach if you are interested in XRP is to watch and see if it goes above my redline (which is the top of the channel) and if it does then buy on the pullback but put this trade on a tight leash.

Think of BTC and alts as a guy ( BTC ) out for a walk with his dogs (Alts), the good times are going to last for the dogs as long as the guy wants to keep walking, as soon as the guy is done, the dogs may be running around having a great time but their time is up and they now have to go back. If your style is short term trading, you must keep your trade on a short leash, when BTC is done ranging or going up, the Alt you have your money in is coming back down, period.

Support trendlines are green
Resistance trendlines are Red
Horizontal support lines are white, the thicker the stronger the support
50 Moving Average is yellow
200 Moving Average is white

THE TREND: Going up
THE OUTLOOK: Since XRP is at the very top of a channel you wait and see if it will go up or back down.

XRP stood zero chance for a breakout.

@Warmasteros, You're welcome, never buy the top of a channel, only buy confirmed breakouts.
XRP just printed a lower high after printing a lower low, that's a red flag for the short term investors.

@Rafa3241, buy XRP for the long term, but if you are in it for the short term avoid it for now.
So exhibit "A" is the perfect example of why you should sell once you hit resistance. Your profit begins to be washed away. SO what is the strategy? Sell once you hit resistance, and then buy if it clears resistance and upon confirmation that the trend is continuing. How do you know if the trend is continuing? A breakout above resistance -- which is hard to miss -- you then move to the 1 or 2 hour timeframe and buy-in once price retraces 38% or 50%.
Thank you! Your charts and TA are great!
