Yerevan (CoinChapter.com) – UNUS SED LEO, a cryptocurrency that describes itself as “the utility token at the heart of the iFinex ecosystem,” slid nearly 1% in the previous week, a moderate decline compared to the leading cryptos by market cap. As a result, LEO forayed into the top 20 and traded at $4.85 ahead of Monday’s New York session.

Moreover, the token’s four-hour chart hinted at an uptrend ahead, based on a technical setup dubbed the Falling Wedge. The formation consists of two converging trendlines with a negative slope. They enclose the price action and lower its swing as the setup progresses.

The Falling Wedge is a bullish reversal setup. Once LEO exhausts the formation, it could pull off an upside move, equal to the maximal distance between the Wedge’s trendlines. Thus, the target price for Unus Sed Leo would stand at $5.57, a 15% uptrend from the current price.

However, before the reversal can occur, LEO has to conquer its 20 and 50-4h moving averages (red and orange) and the setup’s resistance. Meanwhile, the daily chart backed the LEO bulls in the short term.

The daily chart supported the Wedge’s forecast and pinned the short-term price target at the same level. However, the daily price action formed a Descending Channel, which hinted at a possible decline after LEO gains 15% and reaches the target.

In detail, the Descending Channel entails two parallel trendlines with a powerful mid-range. The token might break in either direction after the formation is complete. However, as long as the latter stays relevant, LEO will consecutively retest both the support and the resistance.
