The IOTA price traded in an ascending triangle between January 17-27. The price broke out from this triangle on January 27 and has been increasing since. The breakout transpired with significant volume — increasing its validity.
We successfully predicted this breakout in our previous analysis.
Looking at a slightly longer-term time-frame, we can see that the IOTA price has reached a minor resistance area at 3200 satoshis. The next resistance area is found at 3450 satoshis and coincides with the top of the descending resistance line, the breakout from which began the current upward movement.
The 3450 satoshi resistance area also coincides with the 100-day moving average (MA) — increasing its significance.
How to Trade IOTA
The short-term RSI has yet to show any weakness, even though it is into overbought territory. This allows for the possibility that the price continues to increase until it reaches the next resistance area at 3450 satoshis.
In case the pullback occurs, the 2900 satoshis area, from which the price broke out, is likely to act as support. Initiating a trade with an average entry of 2900 satoshis, a stop loss of 2759 and a target of 3450 satoshis offers a Risk:Reward ratio of four.
To conclude, the IOTA price broke out from an ascending triangle. We believe the increase will continue at least until the price reaches 3450 satoshis.
