Uniswap’s UNI Breaks $20

After a successful close above the $15.00 resistance, UNI extended its rise. It outperformed bitcoin and Ethereum, with a strong upward move above the $16.50 level.

The price even cleared the $18.00 resistance and settled well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, the price spiked above the $20.00 level and traded to a new all-time high at $20.78. It is currently correcting lower and trading below $20.00.

There is also a crucial bullish trend line forming with support near $18.80 on the 4-hours chart of the UNI/USD pair. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $16.73 swing low to $20.78 high.

On the upside, the $20.00 level is a strong resistance. If UNI price settles above the $20.00 level, it could surpass the $20.80 and $21.00 levels. In the stated case, it could even rise towards the $22.00 level.

Dips Supported?

If UNI price fails to settle above the $20.00 zone, it could correct substantially. The first major support is near the $18.80 level and the trend line.

A downside break below the trend line support might open the doors for a push towards the $17.50 support. Any more losses may possibly lead the price towards the $15.80 zone (the last breakout zone).
