In our previous analysis, we stated that:
According to our analysis, BAT will eventually break out from the wedge.
On July 26, the price broke out.
The breakout occurred with above average but not extreme volume.
In these cases, it is customary for the BAT price to decrease until it touches the previous resistance line, before resuming its upward movement.
An interesting development is that the breakout was initiated from a very significant support area.
The 2300 satoshi level has acted as support since March 2018.
Furthermore, the previous two times it has done so, the Basic Attention Token price has begun upward moves.
Is this the beginning of the third one?
Let’s take a look at some technical indicators and determine if that is likely.
First, we will begin with an analysis of daily candlesticks.
The breakout occurred on July 26.
The daily candle was a bullish engulfing one, followed by another bullish candle.
While the recent BAT price decrease looks significant at first glance, we can see that it is easily contained within the body of the breakout candle.
Therefore, we can still consider the recent decrease as a response to the prior rapid increase.
This view is supported by the declining volume over the past three days.
The volume for July 28, 29 and 30 pales in comparison to that on July 26 and 27.
Also, we can see that there was massive volume on July 19, preceding the breakout.
Finally, a look at the daily moving averages (MA) confirms that we are in an uptrend.
On July 27, a bullish cross transpired between the 10- and 20-day MAs.
The price has been trading above both MAs since.
It is important to keep an eye on if the BAT price will find support above the 10-day one.
The use of these indicators and prior price movement makes it likely that BAT will continue its upward movement.
If the Basic Attention Token price continues to increase, one resistance area is outlined above.
It is found near 3300 satoshis.
We believe that it is likely that the price will reach it.
However, a slight short-term decrease might occur before it does.
