  • The market structure of Aptos was bullish on the 4-hour chart once more.
  • The break in structure was followed by a swift surge which showed bullish intent was strong.

Aptos [APT] registered an important development on the price chart today. It broke past the $8 mark, which was both a psychological resistance as well as the previous lower high from 23 June. Combined with the lower timeframe bullishness, it appeared likely that APT could see strong gains in July.

However, the $8-$8.6 region represented a strong resistance zone on the daily timeframe. The $8-$8.36 was also a bearish order block on the 4-hour chart. Can APT bulls manage to breach this confluence of resistances?

The bullish breaks are highlighted by the green lines, and the bearish ones by the orange line. The highlight is that APT bulls did not look back after flipping the market structure bullish. Instead, they pushed prices straight up.

The price registered gains of 9.3% within a single 4-hour trading session. A few hours before the time of writing, APT appeared to stall at the $8.33 level. Hence it was used to plot a set of Fibonacci retracement levels. However, if Aptos chooses to rally higher, the plot must be revised.

Based on the evidence at hand, buyers of APT can look for opportunities upon a retest of the 50% or 61.8% retracement levels. They lie at $7.717 and $7.57, and the latter was where the market structure flipped bullishly.

Considering the imbalance left due to the strong surge from $7.57 to $8.15, a revisit of this zone could be worth watching. The RSI was at 72 showing overbought conditions, which does not dictate an imminent pullback. Meanwhile, the OBV was in a slow uptrend, underlining steady demand behind APT.

The spot CVD sloped sharply higher when prices surged, but some selling pressure was seen in recent hours. The Open Interest continued to climb alongside prices and the funding rate remained firmly positive.

Taken together the data from Coinalyze showed that the short-term sentiment was in favor of the buyers and has not begun to shift yet. Combined with the price action, it appeared that Aptos could aim for further gains this week.
