Key Takeaways:

  • Interoperability blockchain Cosmos gained 60% since Dec. 29, making the top 25 crypto list amid market stagnation.
  • Its native token ATOM could be headed for $80 in the current quarter, based on a weekly chart setup.

YEREVAN ( – Cosmos made a foray into the top 25 cryptocurrencies, with a $9.4 billion market cap. The altcoin led the parade of best performing cryptos in the previous week, with a nearly 60% uptrend, and traded at $41.6 in Wednesday’s European session.

The digital asset established a new all-time high at $43.9 on Jan. 4; however slightly corrected the following session. Additionally, the weekly gains supplied ATOM with a Golden Cross on the daily chart. The formation occurs when a short-term moving average (MA) crosses above a long-term MA. The Cross promises gains for as long as the short-term MA can keep the dominant position.

Cosmos’ Cross between the 20-day exponential MA (EMA-20) and EMA-50 is a result rather than a cause for an uptrend. However, the EMA-20 could prove instrumental in halting a correction, should one occur.

Moreover, the latest rally complied with a larger pattern, best visible on the weekly chart. As CoinChapter predicted in the previous Cosmos review, the mid-December uptrend, and its possible continuation fall in line with the Ascending Channel, described below.

The good news for ATOM continues with the Ascending Channel on the weekly chart. The Channel features two parallel trendlines that enclose the price action and drive it up while maintaining the price swing. In addition, cosmos’ token retested the Channel’s support in mid-December, hinting at an upcoming rally to approximately $80 at the resistance trendline.

If the Ascending Channel remains relevant in Q1 2022, ATOM will be poised for a 100% gain, printing new all-time highs. The upcoming sessions will show if the prediction has merit.
