RUNE Daily Chart: Bullish
Bulls took over again on Tuesday, driving RUNE price near Apr. 10 high of $13.53. RUNE has formed a double top pattern on the daily chart, this bearish pattern could see the asset likely to continue to push lower. The location of the RSI, above 70, hints that the bullish action may be overdone, and therefore no space is left for additional upside. However, if the RUNE/USD pair manages to close above today’s high of $13.54, then it would invalidate the double top pattern, resulting in either a consolidation or a possible move higher.
A move higher above the current price will see a retest of the record peak before moving into uncharted paths. The upside rally could then pause at psychological levels such as $14 and $15.In the negative scenario, if the RUNE price reverses lower, traders could initially look for nearby support around the $12.55 barrier and then at $10.37. Breaking under this level, the next targets will be $8.76 ahead of the MA 50 at $6.86.
RUNE/USD 4-Hour Chart: Bullish
After correcting lower from $13 high on April 10, the pair declined to the MA 50 before settling above the $11 level. The RUNE/USD pair climbed higher and surpassed the $13 resistance. A high was formed near $13.54 before the pair returned lower. A successful close above the $13.54 level could lead THORChain further higher towards the uncharted resistance zone between $14 and $15.
However, if RUNE price retreats, it could touch support at $11.51 ahead of the MA 50 at $10.90. Even lower, the support range between $8.81 and $9.43 could attract attention ahead of the MA 200 at $7.55. Overall, the RUNE price could nosedive if it fails to hold the $12.81 support. On Apr. 10, the RUNE/USD pair started a downside correction from the $13 high. Nevertheless, the pair’s outlook remains positive in the meantime.
