The conversion of some of its treasury’s cash to BTC comes as the king coin exhibits signs of recovery. On a year-to-date, BTC’s value has jumped by 71%, per data from CoinMarketCap. Exchanging hands at $28,223.99 at press time, the leading coin traded at price levels last recorded in June 2022.
Before you trade OSMO
After trading at a high of $11 in March 2022, OSMO’s value has since declined by 92%. At $0.84 at press time, data from CoinMarketCap revealed that the token’s price had oscillated between the $1 and $0.80 price marks in the last month.
On a daily chart, an assessment of the token’s 200 and 50 moving averages revealed the existence of a death cross since December 2022. Since then, OSMO’s 50-day moving average has rested below its 200-day moving average. This is generally considered an indication of a downward trend.
Further, the OSMO’s price traded close to the lower band of the token’s Bollinger Band indicator. While this indicated that the asset was oversold at press time, it hinted at a potential price recovery.
Consideration of the Moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) confirmed this. On 14 March, the MACD line intersected with the trend line in an uptrend, thereby ushering in a new bull cycle.
Further, OSMO’s Money Flow Index (MFI) hinted at growing accumulation at press time. This indicator was pegged at 52.51, above its center line. Buyers’ presence in the OSMO market exceeded that of sellers as the Directional Movement Index (DMI) indicator showed they had control of the market.

At press time, buyers’ strength (green) at 21.60 was solidly above that of the sellers (red) at 18.20.
However, attention should be paid to the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) indicator, which was negative at press time. This showed that, while being in a bull phase, a considerable amount of liquidity still left the OSMO market. Therefore, for any significant price jump, this has to change to a positive.
