Tezos [XTZ] Technical Analysis
XTZ went into free fall when it met resistance at the $2.89 area. At the time, BTC went up by a little margin and crashed slightly too.
However, the price found support at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level ($2.34 level) and consolidated for a while.
Price consolidation between the 38.2% and 50.0% Fib levels comes amid a confluence of indications in the area.
When the price touched the 0.382 Fib level, further down movement was opposed by the formation of the 100-day Exponential Moving Average (100 EMA) upon which prices found additional support.
Below the 100 EMA, the next level of support is found at $2.075 (0.5 fib extension). Although the bulls are gathering energy to resist an assault towards $2.0 at the moment.
In the upward scenario, the price found resistance at $2.75 (1.2 Fib level) and stalked under it until now.
If the bulls overcome this resistance, the next level of resistance is located at $3.0 and further at $3.2 where a major resistance level lies.
The RSI line is horizontal at the 50.0 level. As this has continued for a few days, a breakout will most likely favor any direction in which it occurs.
