Meanwhile, AVAX Prices

Started moving upwards soon after news of the Wirex integration hit the wire. As a result, prices reached an intraday high of $82.6 from Feb 28’s low of $71.8, jumping nearly 15%. The price boost brought AVAX close to its immediate resistance at $83.6.

Furthermore, if bulls continue buying, prices could flip immediate resistance to challenge resistance at $89.4. The Avalanche token would need to consolidate above the $89.4 resistance level before bulls can try to move above the 100-day MA (yellow wave) to target resistance near $97.7.

The relative strength index for AVAX is neutral, clocking 50.22 on the daily charts. Meanwhile, Feb 28’s uptrend brought AVAX above its 50-day (violet wave) and 200-day (red wave) MA trendlines, indicating that the Avalanche token is bullish in the short and long-term time horizons.

On the other hand, if Avalanche fails to sustain its uptrend, its prices could fall to immediate support near $74.5. Moreover, strong selling pressure from bears would likely bring the support at $66 into play. Finally, the Avalanche token also has support near the $59 price level.

The $59 support level has been unbroken since AVAX moved above it mid-Oct last year.

Meanwhile, trend-based momentum oscillator MACD is showing strengthening bullishness in AVAX’s price momentum.

Bearish bars on the MACD histogram are contracting, indicating the MACD line (difference between 12-day and 26-day EMA) is moving up towards the MACD signal line (9-day EMA of MACD). It might soon move above the signal line to chart a bullish crossover.

At the time of writing, AVAX was trading at $80.1, up 6.67% on the day.
