However, buyers experienced a pullback at $0.678 before an extension of the bullish rally. With Bitcoin [BTC] trading above $30k, bulls could look to consolidate the bullish gains.
A full stack of gains for buyers
The sustained selling pressure after the price rejection at the $0.9 price zone kept STX in a bearish downtrend. This saw the native coin of Stacks which is a Bitcoin layer for dApps and smart contracts sink to $0.4, resulting in a 52.5% loss in value.
A recent bullish reversal on 30 August was rejected at the lower low around the $0.55 price zone. This price zone has served as a critical barrier to a bullish rebound. However, the significant rise in bullish market conditions handed buyers a unique opportunity which was maximized to clear the selling pressure at the $0.55 price zone.
This brought back much-needed trading volume to STX with the On Balance Volume (OBV) registering a swift rise over the past week. Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) revealed strong buying pressure, as it remained in the overbought zone.
Buyers can register more gains with another strong buying push toward the $0.7 to $0.75 price level. This would result in an additional 8-13% gain from the current price level of $0.658.
Sellers registered massive losses as bullish conviction grew in the derivatives market
The bullish conviction on STX extended to the futures market, resulting in sellers experiencing massive liquidations. According to Coinglass’ liquidation data, shorts positions worth $175.38k were wrecked in the past 12 hours.
