Important Areas

The main resistance area was initially found at $1.70, but the price broke out in February 2020. There are not that many significant areas near the current price. The closest support is found at $2.50 while the main resistance area can be found between $5.50 and $6.00. While the weekly RSI is deep into overbought territory, it has not generated any trace of bearish divergence, so it is possible that the current move will continue. Tezos Logarithmic Chart

Possible Decrease

The XTZ price has been following an ascending support line since Feb 9, right around the time it broke out above the main resistance area of $1.70. However, the price is considerably above this line now, and unable to use it as support. Furthermore, the 12-hour RSI has generated a considerable bearish divergence. It would not be surprising if the price were to decrease and validate the confluence of the ascending support line and support area. Ascending Support This possibility is also supported by the creation of a descending triangle in the short-term. The price is approaching the end of this pattern, so a rapid move in one direction is bound to occur soon. Since the descending triangle is considered a bearish pattern and the longer-term analysis predicts a decrease, a breakdown towards the support line is expected. If we project the entire height of the pattern to the expected breakdown level, it gives us a target of $2.50, right above the ascending and horizontal supports. XTZ Descending Triangle To conclude, the XTZ price has increased considerably since the beginning of February. However, the price looks due for a correction. A target for the possible breakdown is given at $2.50.
