After looking at the above 4-hour candle chart, we can clearly see that KSM touched the Double Top before forming (A-B-C Triangle Pattern) on the KSM/USDT pair. The first resistance was on the $42.00 AUD price levels from which KSM broke with a strong bullish trend buying volume and is now heading towards its ATH all-time high price.

The above triangle pattern John called it the ABC pattern, which he defines in simple terms: “It’s a stop run of the first pullback after an aggressive move to the upside that signifies more potential in the direction of the larger movement.”

If we zoom out the live price chart and take a look at the price over the past few days or so, we can see the recent breakout more clearly, the trend is almost parabolic & bullish which looks insane.

What do the Technical indicators say?

The  Kusama KSM TradingView indicators (on the 1 day) mainly indicate KSM as a strong buy, except the Oscillators which indicate KSM as a buy.

So Why did KSM Breakout?

The recent rise in Bitcoin over 100% since the halving in May and then the suggested start of the Altcoin season could have contributed to the recent breakout. Another reason could be the whales, secretly stacking up KSM to their portfolio for the next Altcoins rally. It could also be contributed to some of the recent news where ChainX issued a KusamaNetwork
