ATOM price slides into a consolidation
On the daily chart, the descending trend line from the highs of $44.55 acts as a strong resistance barrier to the bulls. Further, the price attempted to challenge the trend line on April 4 but failed to do so. A renewed selling pressure dragged the price to test the horizontal support around $21.40
By analyzing the trend on the weekly chart, we found ATOM harboring a strong support zone around $21.0. The slump is the result of the entire crypto market meltdown. In addition to that, the price slipped below the 50-day EMA fueling the downside momentum. A break below the support zone would amplify the selling pressure toward the lows last seen in August near $15.0.
While things look pessimistic for ATOM so far still a spike in the buying orders could reverse the prevailing trend. The price would jump back to recapture the moving average at $25.37.
