Since dropping to a key demand zone on 21 April, Uniswap [UNI] hasn’t inflicted a strong rebound. Recent recovery attempts faced resistance at an obstacle near $5.57 – $5.66 (white zone).

UNI’s drop on 21 April left an imbalance and FVG (fair value gap) at $5.57 – $5.66 (white zone). UNI’s recovery attempts faced rejection at the above zone, prompting price action to retest the key demand zone of $5.228 – $5.507 (cyan).
The demand zone is also a bullish order block on the daily timeframe. If UNI recovers and retests FVG, the price action will form a double-bottom pattern with the FVG as the neckline resistance level.
Hence, a confirmed uptrend continuation and a close above the FVG $5.67 could set the UNI to rally to the bearish order block at $6.5 – a 15% potential rally.
Contrary to the above, sellers could gain more leverage if UNI closes below the demand zone level of $5.228. But the lower support levels at $4.950 and $4.710 could check any further plunge.

Moreover, the bearish bias is corroborated by liquidation data from Coinalyze. In the past 24 hours, long positions worth $45.8k were wrecked compared to $148 worth of short positions.
