IOTA Daily Chart: Bullish
From a technical perspective, the bullish studies on larger timeframes support the notion as last week’s rebound from the ascending trendline formation at $1.28 further underpinned the rally. As expected the recovery retained its bullish impulse and now needs to get a strong follow-through rise past the $1.60 resistance level.
Otherwise, if positive momentum subsides, the sturdy ascending trendline could draw focus once again and towards the $1.40 support zone. However, IOTA extending the upside move even further could then bring into proximity the $1.70 handle. Technically if IOTA’s bullish outlook is to endure, the price would be required to remain above the ascending trendline and the $1.40 trough.
IOTA 4-Hour Chart: Ranging
IOTA has risen past moving average (MA 50) and extended rise to $1.60 level before the expected reversal occurs. The price has come closer to its minor resistance zone from where a mild reverse lower is anticipated. IOTA/USD can consolidate sideways with a bullish bias. The short-term chart shows strong resistances that can cap the upside and keep the sideways bias intact.
On the flip side, the $1.60 is an important resistance. While below these resistances, the bias may alter bearish to see the moving average (MA 50 and MA 200) at $1.48 and $1.34 levels respectively on the downside going forward. Also, the downside extending even up to $1.28 cannot be ruled out in a bear market. Meanwhile, technical indicators however looked bullish at the time of writing.
Resistance Levels: $1.800, $1.704, $1.605
Support Levels: $1.400, $1.289, $1.182
