Read Algorand’s [ALGO] Price Prediction 2023-24
Is trouble around the corner?
ALGO’s performance on the price front was also optimistic over the last week, as its chart was painted green. According to CoinMarketCap, ALGO’s price registered over 12% weekly gains, and at the time of writing, it was trading at $0.2323 with a market capitalization of more than $1.6 billion.
However, the good days might come to an end, as few market indicators were bearish for ALGO. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) registered a downtick while it was in the overbought zone, which was a bearish signal. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) and On Balance Volume (OBV) also went down slightly, further increasing the chances of a trend reversal.
Realistic or not, here’s ALGO’s market cap in BTC’s terms
Here is what metrics suggest
Interestingly, ALGO’s popularity went down over the last week as its social dominance decreased. While popularity declined, negative sentiments toward ALGO increased, which was concerning because it indicated a lack of trust from the community in ALGO.
Despite the negatives, a few of the metrics were also in favor of ALGO, providing much-needed hope for a continued surge. For instance, ALGO was in demand in the derivatives market as its Binance funding rate remained consistently high. The development activity also increased in the last week, which is a positive signal for a network.
