A quick prologue of the FTX episode

For starters, FTX has recently recovered assets worth $7.3 billion. There were also chances that the bankrupt crypto exchange might resume operations by the second quarter of 2024.

FTX attorney Andy Dietderich claimed that following months of work spent gathering resources and figuring out what went wrong under the direction of accused ex-founder Sam Bankman-Fried “SBF,” the company has now started to think about its future.

FTT was quick to respond

As soon as the news broke, FTT’s price surged considerably and even crossed the 100% mark. However, things then cooled down as FTT registered losses. According to CoinMarketCap, FTT was down by nearly 20% in the last 24 hours. At the time of writing, it was trading at $1.93, with a market capitalization of more than $636 million.

However, the situation looked fine for FTT on its metrics front. For starters, FTT’s weighted sentiments registered a massive uptick. The exchange outflow also spiked considerably, which is a bullish signal. In addition to that, CryptoQuant’s data revealed that after a sudden hike, FTT’s exchange reserve declined, suggesting a decline in selling pressure.

Total holders increased, but here is the catch

Another positive sign was an increase in the graph mapping the total number of FTT token holders. A hike in the metric suggested increased confidence among investors in the token. Nonetheless, it was surprising to see that there was a rise in FTT’s total supply on exchanges and a decline in the supply outside of exchanges.

Caution is advised 

Though a few of the metrics looked bullish, FTT’s daily chart painted an ambiguous picture. For instance, the MACD suggested a massive bullish upper hand in the market. FTT’s Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon displayed the possibility of a bullish crossover in the near term.

However, FTT’s Money Flow Index (MFI) was in the overbought zone, which can increase selling pressure. The token’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) also registered a downtick, which looked bearish.
