OCEAN price shows a stunning performance
Ocean Protocol price has seen jaw-dropping returns recently, with a 180% increase since January 1. Market conditions have been favorable for the crypto asset, evident from the 5% increase in price on the day.
OCEAN price currently trades at $0.45 and is hovering near the 80 level on the Relative Strength Index (RSI). The RSI has reached overbought conditions during the recent run-up to $0.40, with the market now considered more extremely overbought than in 2021, when OCEAN traded at $1.80. Traders should note that the trend and overbought conditions on the RSI have persisted for three weeks, so attempting to short the asset would be ill-advised.
Considering the extremely bullish technicals, OCEAN price could forge a challenge of the liquidity levels near $0.75. The liquidity zone has a confluence of support and resistance pivot points and untagged liquidity from the 85% liquidation that began during the last week of March 2022. A reacquaintance of this level could result in an additional 72% gain from the current market value.
OCEAN/USDT 3-day chart
Traders should exercise caution as the invalidation of the uptrend thesis depends on the 21-day simple moving average at $0.35 holding as support. If a barrier breach occurs, the bears could challenge resistance zones within OCEAN’s current uptrend as far as $0.17. The bearish scenario creates the potential for a 50% market decline.
