Basic Attention Token has a myriad of developments on its price chart. A higher timeframe analysis showed the formation of a descending triangle pattern and a subsequent breakout.

The $0.85 area (red box) has been marked as an area where the price has found both support and resistance in the past two months. It has been an area that rejected BAT, was broken and retested as the zone changed hands from bearish to bullish and back again.

At the time of writing, the $0.76 level and the $0.85 area are places where selling pressure could arise. A rising wedge pattern (white) was also being established. Throughout the month of April, this bearish reversal pattern has slowly been developing.

A likely scenario that could unfold for BAT in the next few weeks, therefore, is a continued push toward the $0.85 area. This could see the wedge pattern unbroken, until near the apex, where a rejection at the resistance zone.

The RSI on the 12-hour chart climbed to neutral 50 in response to the bounce from the $0.67 level in the past ten days. The Awesome Oscillator formed a bullish crossover above the zero line. Hence, overall, there could be some upward momentum seen in the next week or two.

The CMF was at +0.05 to show buying pressure in the markets, while the CVD also showed that buying has been stronger than selling in the past week.

The wedge pattern had confluence with a zone of resistance at $0.85, which was a place BAT could see a reversal in its bullish fortunes.
