IOTA Daily Chart: Bullish
On the daily chart, a bullish rebound from the prior day’s low of $1.28 around the ascending trendline occurred relatively quickly after a bearish halt. Overall, the moving average (MA 50) gives credence to a resuming bull trend. The price pattern indicates a prior reversal on reaching an all-time high at the $1.70 level.
The initial reversal at the top moved lower to support at $0.87 before a rebound on substantial volume towards the $1.60 level in the prior day.

IOTA 4-Hour Chart: Bullish
In the past month, the IOTA/USD gained bullish momentum from the $0.88 support zone against the US dollar. IOTA broke the $1.18 level and the MA 50 hurdles near the $1.40 level to move into a positive zone. Looking at the 4-hour chart, the pair broke the key $1.40 resistance and stays afloat on the ascending trendline with resistance at $1.60.
