CELO/USD Daily Chart: Bullish
CELO/USD Daily Chart
CELO came under renewed buying interest, climbing above the MA 200 at $3.75 following the rebound off the $2.81 (MA 50) support on Aug. 26. CELO price then followed a strong bullish path exploding from lows of $3.98 to a new all-time high of $11.14 on Aug. 30. The RSI is heading up into the overbought territory while supporting the upside movement. The latter increases the odds of a downside correction.
If sellers manage to drive the CELO/USD pair below the current price at $7.22, the $5.15 barrier may provide some footing. In the event selling interest persists, the key support region of $3.75 and the $2.98 level, coinciding with the MA 200 and 50 respectively, could halt the declines. Alternatively, If the price jumps above the all-time high, the expectation is a move into uncharted paths. The upside rally could then pause at the psychological levels such as $13 and $15.
CELO/USD 4-Hour Chart: Bullish
CELO/USD 4-Hour Chart
As seen on the 4-hour chart, CELO is retreating from the record high of $11.14, which was reached earlier today. The RSI is mimicking the price action, following the pullback from the overbought territory. If the price falls further, it could touch the $5.11 barrier before heading south towards the moving averages (MA) 50 and 200 currently at $3.86 and $3.16.
Otherwise, CELO price is currently consolidating gains and it seems like it could make another attempt at the all-time highs of $11.14. If the bulls succeed, the price could then rally towards the $15 and $20 levels. To summarize, CELO’s outlook remains bullish although the chances of a near-term correction can not be overruled. If traders sink beneath the price below the $5.15 level, the outlook could shift to neutral.
