Actual Trading – Market Update

April 16th, 2019



Actual Trading Announces Crypto Targets at 12 pm ET on April 16th, 2019.

We remain short and medium term neutral with a bias to unwinding longs at BTC 5,100 and ETH 164.


Market Overview


Market looked to extend downside over past few days with several large orders that overwhelmed liquidity. Levels held and now other traders are looking to walk prices higher. Given that trades on both sides of the market seem geared to move prices more than actually accumulate or liquidate substantial amounts, the likelihood that a trend develops has a lower probability.




We view the push higher to 5,100 and 164 as an opportunity to sell out long positions. While this move higher only began today and has the potential to work to higher levels, we tend to look at it as a chance to turn and fade the move with modest amounts from 5,100 to 5,300 and 164 to 167. We would sell more aggressively only from significantly higher levels (5-10%). Small shorts established at these levels and slightly higher are to position for a 3-5% push lower if the buying abates. Positions are small given we think at some point the upside will take hold but we do not see that in the picture yet.

Thank you

David Reich | Head of Actual Trading
