Basic Attention Token price forecast
The daily chart shows that the Basic Attention Token price has been in a strong bearish trend in the past few months. The coin has dropped by over 57% from its highest level in 2021. A closer look shows that the token has moved below the 25-day and 50-day moving averages. This simply means that the bearish trend is still on. The coin is slightly above the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level.
Therefore, this rebound seems like a dead cat bounce meaning that the coin will likely resume the bearish trend during the weekend. If this happens, the coin will likely retest the weekend low at $0.6450. This view will be invalidated if it moves above the 61.8% retracement level at $1.02.
