ETHUSD: Next Test Of Support In The 430s?

BITFINEX:ETHUSD   Ethereum / U.S. Dollar
ETHUSD update: Price is hesitating just under the 494 to 518 minor resistance zone after taking out the bearish trend line . This is a tricky situation because at first glance, this market appears to be forming a lower high and following the recent "trend". What is not visible is the probability of the location of BTC which we have been reiterating is bullish and ultimately determines where all the coins go.

No matter how we analyze and examine this market, it is going to do what BTC decides to do. The only reason why I take the time to evaluate the levels and formations is because it is a way to quantify risk specifically for this market.

Since the bearish trend line has been taken out across all the major coins, at S.C., we are anticipating the next retrace to present a higher low. For this market, that means looking for a reversal pattern somewhere in the 430's.

If price falls through, then 392 is the reversal zone boundary to watch for bullish candle formations. Again this movement all depends on the sentiment and order flow of BTC .

In summary, the higher low that we are waiting for may not happen the way we anticipate. Especially in this holiday market, price may consolidate and squeeze a little higher unexpectedly.

At S.C. we are only interested in probabilities, especially on a broader magnitude. When these markets begin to align with our expectations, the next step is to refine the risk. One way we do that is using specific entry criteria that either the market will meet, or it will not. This is an imperfect process that does not catch every opportunity, but it serves a much more important purpose. It filters out a high frequency of trades with negative outcomes, preserves capital and allows for unemotional binary decision making. The benefits are definitely outweigh the occasional opportunity cost. What is your process?

@stumpam1, I second the nomination :)
My process is to:
1) Use deep understanding and fundamentals analysis to identify undervalued projects. Limit the portfolio to mainly high growth potential projects <$200m diluted market cap.
2) Wait for confirmation of the bull market (will result in missing the great prices but reduces risk).
3) Identify board structure entry points.
4) Use more detailed charting patterns right down to the 30minute chart to identify optimal entry points with tight stops (the stops can be tighter due to the detailed 30 minute charting).
Great advice as always thanks
@Deadcool, how do you add pictures to the comment?
Solid TA. I remain optimistic. Price is hovering above 465 because this is a key support level (HH - LL / 2 over 60d period) in the 15m chart. As long as price stays above it, we can expect one last leg up to VST as permitted by the 4-hour RSI. There is a potential VST trade here with good R/R that is worth exploring.

@cryptoezvip, I don't think we will surge higher without forming a structure.

@axdimensions, thanks for the feedback. You were right. I was expecting a flag or triangle to be formed but it did not go as expected. Nevertheless, I suppose this pullback is necessary prior to a longer term bullish rally. I have explained this in my new chart, have a look:
Thank you so much!!!
