Tech view from BuyUcoin
Terra’s price is below the 200-day MA and prices are trading in the parallel down-channel. It formed an inverted hammer candle on February 21. This candlestick pattern is usually considered as a trend reversal signal and suggests that bulls are protecting the prices from falling.
While the entire market was still in a bloodbath, the price of Terra was up 7.12%. If its price could rise above 20-day EMA, the bulls will then try to push the pair above the resistance line of the channel and indicate a possible trend change.
If the price once again turns down from the 20-day EMA, the possibility of a break below the strong support zone at $46.50 to $43.44 increases. That could sink the LUNA/USDT pair to the critical support at $37.50.
