Algorand at $0.1809: A new support or a flip into resistance?
At press time, ALGO’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) pulled back from the oversold area. This indicated that sellers were exhausted, and buyers gained influence due to the increasing demand for ALGO at its lowest price.
Should the bulls gain a larger advantage, ALGO could be pulled higher to break through immediate resistance at $0.2186 or the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) ribbon at $0.2257.
However, ALGO bulls only have a clear advantage if they break the 23.5% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.2452.
However, an intraday candlestick below $0.1809 would nullify the bullish bias. Such a downtrend will force ALGO to look for new support at $0.1682, $0.1442, or $0.1200.
ALGO saw an increase in development activity, but …
According to Santiment, ALGO saw a sharp increase in development activity since 14 December.
At press time, development activity continued to climb, coinciding with a recent partnership with Italy to support banks and insurance guarantees. Therefore, increased development activity could increase ALGO prices in the coming days or weeks.
In addition, ALGO’s volume jumped after the recent price decline, indicating increased selling pressure. However, by press time, volume increased further as the price rose, suggesting that buying pressure continued to build.
Such buying pressure could reinforce the uptrend and push ALGO to retest or break the immediate resistance level of $0.2186.
However, the Binance Funding Rate for the ALGO/USDT pair had fallen into negative territory after being quite positive for almost a week. This could indicate a bearish outlook for the pair in the derivatives market and could derail the bulls if it slipped deeper into negative territory.
A bearish bitcoin [BTC] price could complicate the situation for ALGO bulls. Any downtrend in BTC will drag ALGO lower and invalidate the bullish bias described above.
