  • ICP retained its bullish bias despite the drop in prices
  • This pullback could be followed by a period of consolidation

Internet Computer [ICP] outperformed Bitcoin [BTC] based on the price movement from 12th October to 16th December. ICP climbed by 312%, which is a lot of money, so who cares if the token is funnily named?

Based on the three-month uptrend from $2.87 to $11.9, a set of Fibonacci retracement levels (pale yellow) were plotted.

In May 2022, the $12 region had served as support for a couple of weeks, which could be why ICP halted there this time. It could also be that the market was wildly overextended.

The RSI on the 1-day chart reached 90.5 on 17th December, a high it has not reached since ICP trading began on Binance. The 80 level has been a cap during previous rallies, which underlined this one as extraordinary.

To the south, the $8.64 and $7.25 were former resistance levels from the weekly timeframe. They could serve as support during a pullback, as could the 61.8% and 78.6% Fibonacci levels at $6.32 and $4.8.
