Aptos bulls manage to defend $8.33 but an uptrend was not yet in sightOn the 4-hour chart, the market structure of APT remained bearish. The lower high at $8.82 registered on 8 May was still not broken (trading session close above), although it came extremely close on 17 May.
On lower timeframes, the formation of higher lows since 14 May was a slightly encouraging factor.
The higher timeframes also heavily leaned in favor of the bulls. The daily timeframe showed the market structure was strongly bearish. The temporary stall in momentum at the $8.2-$8.33 area might not mean the downtrend was about to reverse.
