NEW DELHI (CoinChapter.com) — Tezos blockchain’s native cryptocurrency, XTZ, outperformed the rest of the crypto market as it jumped by 28.5% from Jun 4’s low of $1.84 to reach an intraday high of $2.37 on Jun 10.

However, the Tezos token later corrected as bears moved in to profit from XTZ’s recent uptrend. As a result, the smart contracts platform’s native token has been trading below a descending trendline since early Oct 2021.

If the bears continue their sell-off, XTZ prices could fall to the support from its 20-day exponential moving average (20-day EMA, red wave) near $2.05. Moreover, a breach below the 20-day EMA might lead to more sell-offs, resulting in XTZ testing support near $1.8.

Additionally, positive bars on the MACD histogram have been expanding, indicating that the MACD line (difference between 12-day and 26-day EMA) is moving away from the MACD signal line (9-day EMA of MACD).

Bulls might help XTZ break above its 50-day EMA (purple wave) to target immediate resistance near $2.31. Moreover, a breakout and consolidation above immediate resistance might help Tezos prices challenge resistance from their 100-day EMA (blue wave) near $2.7.

Finally, a sustained uptrend might help XTZ prices challenge the resistance confluence between 200-day EMA (green wave) and the multi-month descending trendline near $3.2.
