The Unum Crypto Core and Satellite Investment Strategy

One way to gain investment exposure to cryptocurrencies is through a Core & Satellite Strategy, where:

1. The Core strategy, which invests in the Top 5 cryptocurrencies, provides exposure that is broadly representative of the market, and
2. the Satellite strategy, which includes up to 10 additional altcoins, has the potential to deliver higher returns through concentrated exposure at a reduced weighting.

Trade Idea: Bitcoin  – Finding It’s Feet?
A study of the price action for Bitcoin sees the price having been under significant pressure following the peak of $19891 on 17 December 2017. Lackluster trading has been the theme year-to-date however on 17 July we saw the price break the downward trend line which is being followed by a month-long re-test of the breakout level. We once again are seeing $5900 to $6000 as a key support level being held with yesterday’s candle reflecting some buying interest. At current levels, the price appears to be making a bullish reversal off the trend line, creating an opportunity for traders to take a buy/long position.
Trade Levels:
Buy/Long BTC at current levels $6300/50
Stop-loss: $5800
Take Profit Target: $7000
