While Bitcoin [BTC] and the general crypto market experienced mild gains in the past few days, ATOM’s price has remained around this key support level. What can traders expect next?
Bearish momentum stalls at key support level
Bears have retained the upper hand in dictating ATOM’s price movement over the past three months. However, ATOM’s recent price action showed that bears have found the $10.56 price zone very tough to crack. This price zone heralded ATOM’s price rally in January, reiterating the strength of buyers at this support level.
Generally, the retests of a support level after the first test are weaker, but bulls have refused to give up their hold of the $10.56 support level. Price has hovered above and under this support level for the past seven days to hint at waning selling pressure.
While bulls haven’t been able to trigger a sustained reversal from this level, on-chart indicators hinted at its potential. The On Balance Volume (OBV) indicator maintained a slight uptrend which suggested demand was present for ATOM. Although the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) dipped under the neutral 50, it stood at 42 to also hint at a possible reversal.
The 12-hour chart showed that a significant bullish candle close above the $10.56 support level could rally ATOM toward the key resistance at $11.59. Alternatively, if bears successfully flip the $10.56 support level to resistance, ATOM’s price could reach the January low of $9.66.

Market sentiment slightly favored bulls
The long/short ratio on the 12-hour timeframe revealed that market sentiment leaned slightly in favor of a bullish rebound. Data from Coinglass showed that longs held a 51.07% advantage, as of press time.
However, the fluctuating funding rate showed market speculators were adopting a watchful approach toward ATOM. Traders should exercise caution and watch for potential price movements at the key support level before entering new positions.
