XTZ/USD: Can The Bulls Defend The 100-Days EMA?

Tezos rebounded at the support provided by the $1.29 level but it failed to break above $1.35. As such, it slipped below. It now trades directly at support provided by the 100-days EMA which is further bolstered by a 2-month-old rising trend line.

If XTZ continues to drop beneath the 100-days EMA and the rising trend line, the market will certainly turn bearish. To turn bullish, it must rise and create a fresh high above the $1.50 level.

Tezos Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers continue to push the market beneath the 100-days EMA, immediate support is located at $1.20 which is provided by the 200-days EMA. Beneath this, support can be found at $1.15 (.618 Fib Retracement), $1.10, and $1.00. Alternatively, if the bulls defend the 100-days EMA and climb higher, resistance is expected at $1.35 and $1.42. Above this, resistance is found at $1.50.

The RSI remains beneath the 50 level which shows that the bears control the market momentum. However, the Stochastic RSI has been extremely oversold for a long time now and is primed for a bullish crossover signal that could send this market much higher.

Tezos Short Term Price Prediction

If the bears continue to push XTZ beneath 0.00016 BTC, immediate support beneath is located at 0.000157 BTC (downside 1.272 Fib Extension level). Beneath this, support is found at 0.000149 BTC (.618 Fib Retracement) and 0.000133 BTC (downside 1.618 Fib Extension).
