IOTA Daily Chart: Ranging
IOTA extends strong rebound into the third consecutive day spurred by the buying wave in the Altcoin market. IOTA resumed the uptrend leg from $1.45 (Mar 31 low) after a consolidation phase on reaching the prior yearly high at $1.84. A fresh yearly high is set at $1.88 and the pair is currently consolidating gains. There is also an ascending trend line with support near $1.45 on the daily chart.
If there is a downside correction, the ascending trend line could provide support near $1.45. Any more losses might call for a test of the $1.38 support or the daily MA 50. On the upside, a resistance is formed at the yearly high at $1.88, above which the pair could accelerate higher towards $2. The next major stop for the bulls could be around $3 in the coming days. Everything being equal, IOTA could continue to surge in an ascending trendline pattern during the following trading sessions.
IOTA/USD 4-Hour Chart: Ranging
The IOTA/USD pair rebounded from a support level formed by the 4-hour MA 50 at $1.50 on April 4. As a result, IOTA was able to rise to fresh highs of $1.86. Bears sold at higher levels and pulled the price to lows of $1.64 on April 6. The positive sign is that the bulls have held on to the uptrend for the past three days. Immediate resistance is at the prior yearly high at $1.84 ahead of the $1.88 high.
If the bulls can drive the price above $1.88, the IOTA/USD pair could begin the next leg of the rally with a target objective of $2.0 and then $2.50. On the contrary, if the price again turns down from the overhead resistance zone, support awaits at the recent consolidative lows of $1.64 ahead of the MA 50 ($1.60). If the IOTA price plummets below the MA 50, MIOTA range-bound action may continue for a few more days before seeking support at the MA 200 ($1.43).
Resistance Levels: $3.0, $2.0, $1.88
