In detail, the digital asset formed a Symmetrical Triangle that featured the mentioned down-sloping resistance and a rising support line. The former hindered AVAX’s upside impulses since establishing an all-time high of $147 on Nov. 21.

The Symmetrical Triangle is typically a continuation pattern. In other words, it predicts that the trend preceding the formation would continue after the Triangle is exhausted. AVAX broke the Triangle’s resistance, but Avalanche bulls have to put substantial weight behind the rally to maintain it.

Meanwhile, the trading volumes subsided on Apr. 8, hinting at a possible correction. Moreover, trend-based oscillator MACD printed red bars in the histogram, implying that the bearish trend is not yet over despite the latest upside move.
