Symmetrical Triangle

Looking at the hourly time-frame we can see that IOTA has been trading inside a symmetrical triangle since reaching a high on September 18.

Due to the presence of wicks, both the resistance and support lines can have slightly different slopes.

The symmetrical triangle is considered a neutral pattern.

Thus, when occurring after an uptrend, it often means that it will act as a continuation pattern, indicating a breakout.

Let’s take a look at technical indicators to see how likely that is.

Technical Indicators

When looking at a longer time-frame, the first thing we notice is the presence of long upper wicks near the resistance area.

Since they were not present in shorter time-frames, this is an indication that IOTA could not sustain its high prices.

Additionally, we can see the presence of bearish divergence in the RSI.

Even though the divergence is not present in the MACD, it is relatively significant.

This makes us believe that even if IOTA breaks out from the triangle, it will likely create a double top and will not be successful in moving above the resistance area.

Future Movement

An outline of future price movement is given below.

Additionally, one support area is traced below.

The price is likely to continue trading inside the triangle, before eventually breaking down and reaching the support area, which is found at 2700 satoshis.

IOTA Price Summary

The IOTA price is trading inside a symmetrical triangle.

According to our analysis, it is likely to decrease and reach the support area at 2700 satoshis.
