Cryptocurrency analyst and trader Michaël van de Poppe is warning traders against buying Decentraland (MANA), The Sandbox (SAND) and Elrond (EGLD) at their current prices.
Van de Poppe tells his 148,000 YouTube subscribers that following the “epic runs” of these three altcoins, it’s time for investors to take profits in Decentraland, a virtual-world blockchain; Elrond, a scalable blockchain; and The Sandbox, a gaming platform.
“…if you are in those projects, I think the point has come to actually take profits, especially when it comes to MANA and SAND. Those have been running heavily. You have to take profits before a heavy correction starts to take place because at this point the downwards momentum might be heavier than the upwards momentum.”
Looking at the Elrond/Bitcoin (EGLD/BTC) chart, the crypto analyst says that buying opportunities are gone until a correction adjusts prices to the 0.005 BTC ($291) and 0.006 BTC ($349.20) level.
At time of writing, Elrond is trading at $427 while Bitcoin is exchanging hands at $58,200.
“If you’re seeking for any trade opportunity right now, I think the opportunities are quite gone. But the [EGLD/BTC] chart itself says that every level gets a beautiful retest taking place here before it starts to continue.
So I’m looking at any of these two levels [between 0.005 BTC and 0.006 BTC] to take any entry from, based on a daily time frame.”
Van de Poppe says he’s hoping to pick up SAND if it retraces down to about 0.00007 BTC ($4.07). The asset is trading at $7.27 at time of writing.
“So SAND, I’m not interested in trading this one at all. I’m going to look at anywhere in this region [below 0.00007 BTC] for any scalp opportunities.”
Decentraland’s MANA is trading at $5.10 at time of writing. According to the crypto analyst, MANA could drop to around 0.000055 BTC ($3.20) where it could present opportunities for longer-term trades. He recommends looking for scalping opportunities if it starts trading below 0.00007 BTC ($4.07).
“You can start looking for scalp rates here [0.00007 BTC]. But more likely, we’re going to get into this region here [around 0.000055 BTC] where you want to take some trades.”
