The market structure weakened more – Can bulls survive?
At the height of the January rally, UNI entered a price consolidation and formed a rising channel (white). The price action breached below the channel in early February but was checked by the 100-day EMA (exponential moving average).
But bulls got boosted after a retest of the pullback on the 100-day EMA that offered a strong recovery, setting UNI to reach an overhead resistance at $7.624. The retracement after the price rejection at $7.624 has undermined a successful recovery.
Bears could re-enter the market if UNI fails to close above the 23.6% Fib level ($6.390). They could benefit from shorting the asset at $6. Stop loss could be set above $6.390.
On the contrary, a daily close above the 23.6% Fib level could tip bulls to target the Fib levels of 38.6% ($6.625), 50% ($6.816), or 61.8%($7.007). If Bitcoin [BTC] retests the $25K, UNI could swing to the overhead resistance level of $7.624.
However, the RSI on the daily chart showed an increasing divergence. In addition, the Average Directional Movement Index (ADX) retreated, showing the UNI’s market weakened and could enter consolidation or further retracement.
But the 100-day EMA moved horizontally, showing a consolidation could be likely in the mid-term.
Quarterly holders outperformed monthly peers
There was a wide-network accumulation of UNI tokens, as shown by the rising 90-day Mean Coin Age. It shows there could be a potential bullish rally in the works. Nevertheless, monthly holders incurred losses of 5% at press time, as shown by the 30-day MVRV.

On the contrary, quarterly holders enjoyed a modest profit of 2% after most of the gains in January got cleared during the correction period. Quarterly holders could reclaim some of the lost gains if UNI clears the 23.6% hurdle.
