The ARK/BTC chart does look more bullish than its USD counterpart. The token has just broken out from a descending resistance line and made its first attempt at moving above 3140 satoshis, which however was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, there is strong support at 2700 satoshis, and a bounce at this level would create a higher low. While the MACD is showing weakness, the RSI has just crossed above 50 and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bullish cross. If a breakout occurs, the next resistance area would be at 3550 satoshis.
