Tezos [XTZ] Technical Analysis
The buyers lost control of the market on May 26 at 05:30 hours UTC when the market began a retracement towards $2.72. At the time, the price was struggling to overcome the 50.0% Fibonacci retracement level but failed to break the resistance. As the bears took over, XTZ found initial support at 0.382 fib level ($2.72).
XTZ/USD pair eventually made way to lower lows at 23% fib level, a move which saw prices plunge to $2.64. In the tug-of-war price struggle, the market revived a little bit but the bull couldn’t push further than $2.70. Since then, alternate bull and bear markets have taken turns to take over the market sentiments.
While prices face uncertainty in a potential breakout, there appears to be an even distribution of momentum between market buyers and sellers. If the buyers manage to push the price up at breakout, then the next level of resistance lies at the 0.5 fib level. Beyond this, major resistance lies at $2.81.
If price plunge during a potential breakout, then the bears may succeed in dragging prices beyond the $2.63 mark. More negative push downwards may see prices plunging as low as $2.60 ( 0% fib extension).
