Our new series, Learn Live ICYMI, provides a recap of our Learn 101 livestreams, supplying you with comprehensive expertise and insights from leading figures in the crypto industry in case you missed the livestream.

Joining the livestream on Jun 6, 2024 were three distinguished guests: Evan Aldo, professional trader; Anders (aka Cryptos Cobra), web3 addict; and Dirk Pennings, web3 enthusiast. Under the moderation of Sabrina Chua, Crypto Evangelist and SEO Editor at Bybit, this episode explores how the intricacies of meme coin trading could be your gateway to significant gains.

Key Takeaways:

  • Extensive community analysis combined with technical tools can help to effectively predict meme coin trends.

  • Understanding and applying technical indicators, such as RSI and Fibonacci levels, are crucial for strategizing entries and exits in meme coin trading.

  • Building strong networks within the crypto community can provide early insights and advantages in meme coin investments.


How to Trade Meme Coins

The opening segment of our livestream delved into the strategies essential for trading meme coins, whereby technical analysis meets keen community engagement. Anders highlighted the significance of early detection in identifying promising meme coins. He shared his unique four-step process, which begins with assessing the community's engagement and the coin's visibility. Notably, he shared a distinctive approach that involves using Google Keyword Planner to determine the search volume for a coin, emphasizing, "If there are between 100 and 1,000 searches, I’ll move to the next step and do more in-depth analysis of the coin."

Anders also stressed the necessity of verifying whether a coin is a honeypot in order to avoid scams, reflecting his thorough due diligence process. His strategy is designed to gauge both the initial hype and the sustainable interest in a coin, crucial for long-term investment decisions.

Aldo contributed his expertise in technical analysis, specifically on the importance of understanding support and resistance levels. He explained, "A lot of these meme coins, some of them go up and then they go all the way to zero. But some of them go down a lot by 70 to 80%, [and] hit off major kinds of support" before potentially rising again. 

He advises using tools such as Fibonacci retracements on TradingView to identify potential support and resistance levels during price fluctuations. Aldo also likened trading meme coins to gambling, due to their unpredictability, and warned of risks such as "rug pulls and other shady stuff," advocating for caution among traders.

Anders and Aldo’s insights provided a comprehensive look at the tactical approaches to trading meme coins, blending rigorous analysis with practical tools and cautionary advice to help you navigate this volatile segment of the cryptocurrency market.

Analyzing Meme Coins

In this hands-on session, panelists demonstrated live how they analyze current meme coins. 

Anders began by explaining his approach to gauging community interest and market dynamics, emphasizing the critical role of community size in predicting price movements: “If it’s a big community, the price will usually go up. But I also track the buying pressure and selling pressure like a hawk.” He noted the importance of maintaining a balance in which "buying pressure needs to be a bit above selling pressure,” which typically leads to an increase in price. 

In addition, Anders introduced viewers to advanced AI-based tools he employs — specifically, Lorentzian Classification and Logistic Regression v3, which help him analyze these market pressures more effectively.

Aldo chose to demonstrate with the Pepe coin (PEPE), noting, "For technical analysis, you don’t want to just look at one individual thing.” He showcased ways to identify support and resistance zones and interpret RSI indicators, highlighting conditions that signal overbought or oversold states. Aldo also demonstrated the use of the Fibonacci tool, which he finds particularly useful, "especially when you’re in price discovery mode," for providing practical insights into predicting potential price movements.

The Importance of Networking and Risk Management

Pennings offered a different perspective, focusing on the significance of networking within the crypto community: "Fibonacci levels and RSI are both very good indicators, but in my opinion, there’s one more thing that’s more important — network or connections." He described how well-connected individuals often have early access to promising meme coin projects, which can lead to rapid price increases. He stressed the importance of being proactive in the community to gain valuable insights and opportunities: “A big part of crypto is who you know, and if you know the right people, you can be very early in the meme coin projects.”

On the topic of risk management, Pennings shared personal lessons on the importance of preserving capital: “If I’m up 200%, I always take my initial amount out of the token, and I just let it ride so that I don’t have any risk anymore." He pointed out that successful crypto trading isn't just about making profits, but more importantly, about not losing money. This approach allows him to safeguard his investments, while at the same time potentially reaping the benefits of further market movements.

The session wrapped up with a lively Q&A in which the audience posed incisive questions to the experts, probing deeper into their strategies and decision-making processes.
