On 24 June, WAVES rocketed from $1.55 to $2.89, a 1-day gain of almost 87%, before sinking into a pullback. Over the past week, the token’s price consolidated around the $1.9 mark before climbing to the $2.15 region yet again.
Waves had a strong bullish outlook but could it be too early for another run?The pump from $1.3 to $2.89 was used to plot a set of Fibonacci retracement levels. In the past two weeks, WAVES retraced to the 61.8% level at $1.9. It dipped as low as $1.78 on 30 June. At the time of writing, the market structure of WAVES was bullish once more on the 4-hour chart, after the move above $1.99. The RSI also showed bullish momentum.
The OBV was also in an uptrend since 26 June, even though WAVES itself saw a pullback. This was a strong sign that the bulls were getting ready for another move upward and were accumulating the token in anticipation. In contrast to the OBV, the CMF showed that capital flow was directed out of the market for the most part since 26 June.
The 1-day chart showed that the $2.14 level was a previous lower high from late May. The rally above this level meant the market structure on the daily timeframe was bullish as well. Hence, swing traders can look to build long positions in the $1.9-$2.1 region, targeting the local high at $2.89. More ambitious bulls can wait for a move to the 23.6% extension level at $3.26.
A question that remained was, have WAVES accumulated for long enough to warrant such an eruption of bullish sentiment? WAVES traded in the $1.83-$2 region from 1 July to 6 July, not even a whole week. Were the bulls already looking to push for another move north measuring at least 40%? Possibly not, hence, swing traders should be cautious with their position sizing.
