Fibonacci retracement and extension levels highlighted areas of interest on the chartOn the 2-hour chart, AVAX formed a series of lower highs and lower lows in the past week to denote a downtrend. The Fibonacci levels (yellow) showed that the price was near the local low at $9.99 once more. It could bounce as high as $11.93 before another drop, although the evidence for such a bounce was not present.
Hence the likely path was a retest of the $10.5 resistance before a move to $9.41, the 23.6% extension level. The $10.15 and $10 levels highlighted in orange were extremely important. They represented low of 2023 thus far, and a demand zone in June and July 2021. $10.5 was also critical, and AVAX bulls have not put up a strong fight at these levels.
The RSI on the H2 chart outlined strong bearish momentum. The OBV continued to slide lower and the CMF showed sizeable capital outflow from the Avalanche market with a reading of -0.19. Therefore, a move below $10 and a subsequent retest could offer a shorting opportunity.
