The Verge (XVG) price made several breakout attempts on December 5. Due to readings from technical indicators, we believe these will not be successful and the breakout will occur sometime later on.
With the upcoming hard fork in December, this is an interesting time for Verge. However, the same cannot be said about the XVG price. It has been decreasing since November 15 — consolidating above the breakout level without much volatility. This almost changed on December 5. Cryptocurrency trader and advisor @scottmelker stated that the XVG price is close to breaking out above its current descending resistance line.

Verge in an Ascending Triangle

Verge broke out above the resistance area at 47 satoshis on November 14. The price reached a high of 64 satoshis before returning to validate the resistance area as support. Afterward, the XVG price began to increase and created a possible ascending triangle. It is currently at the resistance line of this triangle. XVG Ascending Triangle

Technical Indicators

When incorporating moving averages (MAs), we can see that a bullish cross has transpired between the 50- and 100-period MAs. However, the XVG price has found resistance at the 200-day MA. A breakout of the full height of the triangle would take the XVG price at 65 satoshis, inside a resistance area. This would also create a double top relative to the November 16 highs. XVG Possible Breakout Additionally, the XVG price has moved outside of its upper Bollinger band. The two previous times it did so, the price reversed. There is a bearish divergence in the RSI, visible up to the daily time-frame. This makes us believe that the XVG price will not break out on this attempt —rather, it may consolidate inside the triangle for a period of time before eventually doing so. XVG Bollinger To conclude, while the XVG price will likely break out, eventually, we believe it will consolidate within the triangle for some time before it does. It is possible that the XVG price will drop to validate the support line before beginning its gradual ascent.
