altcoins prices correct! 3 steps to take advantage

Markets correct – what should you do?

We’re seeing lots of red on the screen today after BTC failed again (3x) to move through $60K.  Altcoins are down high single to double digits.

So what should you do?

Short answer is – find trending coins you missed out on.

Long answer:

1. Stay calm – prices correct, that’s a normal phase of an upcycle and they can present tasty opportunities.

2. Scan the market for such pullbacks in uptrending coins using altFINS crypto screener.

3. Find the closest support zones in charts, which are areas for entry opportunities.


To save time, altFINS offers a pre-defined signal just right for these types of corrections called Pullback in Uptrend (try it): 


As you can see above, there are currently 469 coins that fit the description. You can adjust the filter further to narrow down the list (see video on how).

These are possible entry areas.  You could have two such entry areas and split your trade into two orders.

For example, Ethereum (ETH) has clear support areas at $2,000 and $1,800, and Polkadot (DOT) at $40 and $35:
