Technical view by Giottos Crypto Exchange

Avalanche is one of many “Ethereum killers” in the market with a vibrant ecosystem of validators, developers, and potential use cases for institutions and enterprises. Its token – AVAX – was one of the best performing coins of 2021, surging from $3 to nearly $150.

After a sharp correction from its all-time high that took it to $52, Avalanche appears to have finally turned an important resistance trendline into support. It is currently testing this trendline, and if this level holds, it would be a bullish signal that could lead AVAX to short-term targets at $88, $99, and $110.

These goals, however, have been rejected in the past. If they continue to offer resistance, AVAX could consolidate and retest the support at $74 and maybe even $70 ahead of an impulsive move higher at the confluence with its trendline. These levels would therefore be attractive for long positions.

Main levels:

Support: $74, $70

Resistance: $88, $99, $110
