If we see the above 1-day candle chart, MKR did a strong breakout from the bullish rectangle pattern while trading sideways from the last few days & is now heading towards its major resistance of the month. After BTC made a new all-time high in its price recently and Altcoins are also rising in a bullish trend, MKR looks well-positioned to hit the next high price levels.


“Bullish rectangles are continuation patterns that occur when a price pauses temporarily during an uptrend – they offer you a buying opportunity. … you place your profit target the same distance above the rectangle’s upper resistance level as the distance between the rectangle’s two parallel lines.”

What do the technical indicators say?

The MKR TradingView indicators (on the 1 day) mainly indicate MKR as a buy, except the Oscillators which indicate MKR as a sell.

So Why did MKR Breakout?

The recent rise in Bitcoin over +300% since the halving in May and then the suggested start of the Altcoin season could have contributed to the recent breakout. Another reason for this sudden pump in price could be the whales secretly buying MKR for the next Altcoins rally & it could also be contributed to some of the recent news of Executive Voting Portal.

Where to Buy or Trade MKR?

Maker has the highest liquidity on Binance Exchange so that would help for trading MKR/BTC or MKR/USDT pairs. However, if you’re just looking at buying some quick and hodling then Swyftx Exchange is a popular choice in Australia.
