Fantom price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the FTM price has been in a strong bullish trend in the past few months. The bullish trend saw the coin’s price jump to above $3.15, which was the highest level on January 5th this year. It has moved above the 25-day and 50-day moving averages.
Also, the coin has formed a break and retest pattern by retesting the support at $3.15. It has also formed a cup and handle pattern, which is usually a bullish signal.
Therefore, the path of the least resistance for the Fantom price is bullish, with the next key resistance to watch being at $3.50, which is about 10% above the current level. This view will be invalidated if the price drops below $3.00.
