NEW DELHI (CoinChapter.com) — Fantom (FTM) could fall by 60% from its current price levels following a possible ‘double top’ formation.

In detail, a double top is a bearish technical reversal pattern. It appears when an asset reaches a high price level twice in a row with a moderate decline between the two highs. Then, prices falling below support equal to the low between the two highs confirm the pattern.

Once an asset’s prices break below the support level, the price target equals the distance between the pattern’s height. Hence, the Fantom token has a price target of $0.552, a drop of 60% from the breakout level if the double top pattern holds.

Fantom Faces Death Cross Woes

Aside from the double top pattern, FTM also has bearish pressure from an upcoming death cross between its 26-day exponential moving average (white wave) and 200-day moving average (red wave).

The death cross often indicates the onset of bearish price action, resulting in significant selling pressure. If Fantom succumbs to the resulting FUD, prices could fall to immediate support near the $1.46 price level. Moreover, an extended selling spree might see support near $1.3 come into play.
