Avalanche price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the Avalanche price declined to $22.37, where it formed a double-bottom pattern. Since then, the AVAX price has risen and moved above the neckline of this pattern at $32.05. Further, the price has managed to move above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level and crossed the 25-period and 50-period exponential moving averages (EMA).
Therefore, in the near term, the price may continue rising as bulls start targeting the important resistance at $41.95, which is about 30% above the current price. This price is close to the double-top pattern it formed in February this year. It is also the same length as the double bottom and the neckline.
