TradeRoom: Our Weekly Crypto Trades Analysis – May 2, 2022

Welcome to this weekly series from the TradeRoom. My name is Dave and I’m the founder of The Crypto Den, an Australian-based crypto trading and education community aiming to give you the knowledge to take your trading game to the next level.

Crypto Market Outlook

The TOTAL market cap lost US$100 billion over the weekend and is currently having a small retrace of that loss. I suspect this will be pretty short-lived, which would bring us to a very important last line of defence. If the TOTAL drops below US$1.58 trillion, there’s huge potential for a US$400 billion loss. This will undoubtedly hurt a lot of people, so please investigate stop losses and make sure you’re prepared for the worst-case scenario!

TOTAL market cap

The BTC monthly closed just below that monthly support and has a window of opportunity to keep us in a ranging situation. Failing that, we get another bearish month and it’s anyone’s guess how low we could drop from here. If you zoom right out and take a good look at the monthly chart, you will see there’s really no structure between US$34,000 and US$14,000.

BTC monthly chart

I’m putting forward some very bearish cases here and that does not mean it’s game over. There’s still opportunity for BTC to bounce, but it must happen above US$30,000! If that level breaks, then it will be a long winter in my opinion.

BTC/USDT 1D chart

BTC is currently sitting on a weekly 100 EMA and some daily support. My bias is still that we see a bear flag that I wrote about last week play out over the next month or two. If so, ALTS will bleed hard.

Last Week’s Performance


ADA, like many others, is also at its last line of defence. I entered short last week and am now currently sitting at around 120% ROI. I’d like to see this trade reach approximately 800% in 10x.



This entry was partially TA and partially luck! Last week I wrote about my thoughts on DOGE dropping 70%, then Elon decided to buy Twitter (as you do) and DOGE pumped. The luck part was that I didn’t enter right away and instead got in a short on the pump. I’m currently sitting at 170% ROI.


This Week’s Trades


I’ve been watching TORN since last week and have just entered a short trade today. Candlestick analysis is showing a lot of indecision at a crucial level of daily resistance. R:R looks good enough for me to enter.



A 2017 fan favourite, TRX, looks like it could be setting up for a short trade. It’s currently sitting at both daily 200 EMA and daily resistance. If we see BTC drop, this could present a prime entry for short trades.
