Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: ADA, ATOM, AVAX – February 4 Trading Analysis

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Cardano (ADA)

Cardano ADA is a proof-of-stake blockchain platform whose stated goal is to allow “changemakers, innovators, and visionaries” to bring about positive global change. The open-source project also aims to “redistribute power from unaccountable structures to the margins to individuals”, helping to create a society that is more secure, transparent, and fair. Cardano is used by agricultural companies to track fresh produce from field to fork, while other products built on the platform allow educational credentials to be stored in a tamper-proof way, and retailers to clamp down on counterfeit goods.

ADA Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ADA is ranked the 6th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$1.05. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

ADA‘s nearly 45% drop from its mid-January highs found a low near $1.02 last week before closing over a short-term high.


This daily close over the high could signal a shift in market structure that might reach probable resistance near $1.27. A sustained bullish move may target the swing high at $1.36. If this stop run occurs, a run beyond the high into probable resistance near $1.49 and $1.60 is possible.

Bulls could buy a retracement to possible support near $1.02, just above the monthly open. A bearish turn in the marketplace may propel the price toward possible support near $0.9725. 

However, relatively equal lows near $0.9318 and $0.9122 provide an attractive target for bears if the market resumes its bearish trend. A run on these lows might find support between $0.8847 and $0.8692.

2. Cosmos (ATOM)

Cosmos ATOM bills itself as a project that solves some of the “hardest problems” facing the blockchain industry. It aims to offer an antidote to “slow, expensive, unscalable and environmentally harmful” proof-of-work protocols, like those used by Bitcoin, by offering an ecosystem of connected blockchains. ATOM tokens are earned through a hybrid proof-of-stake algorithm and they help to keep the Cosmos Hub, the project’s flagship blockchain, secure. This cryptocurrency also has a role in the network’s governance.

ATOM Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ATOM is ranked the 20th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$28.10. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

December and January provided respectable 85% gains for bulls who bought ATOM at the monthly open, with the price finding resistance near $42.12.

If bears take back control this month, the top of the former gap beginning at $26.44 may provide support for at least a short-term bounce. The top of the consolidation range starting near $25.58 is more likely to provide substantial support.

The most robust support is likely to be found in the overlapping consolidation ranges between $23.74 and $22.06, with a sharp slice through these levels possibly suggesting the end of the bull run.

The region from approximately $32.70 to the most recent swing high is likely to provide some resistance. The swing high provides a reasonable first target for a possible next leg up. 

If this high breaks, the 1.0 extension near $35.21 and the 2.0 extension near $42.90 may provide the next primary new high targets.

3. Avalanche (AVAX)

Avalanche AVAX is the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol. Avalanche is blazingly fast, low-cost, and green. Any smart contract-enabled application can outperform its competition on Avalanche. AVAX is the native token of Avalanche. It is a hard-capped, scarce asset that is used to pay for fees, secure the platform through staking, and provide a basic unit of account between the multiple subnets created on Avalanche.

AVAX Price Analysis

At the time of writing, AVAX is ranked the 12th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$67.26. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

Source: TradingView

AVAX‘s 80% rally in December ended with an almost 45% retracement as the rest of the altcoin market dropped. Bulls stepped in near the 61.8% retracement of Q4’s move, creating a consolidation that ended with last week’s bullish impulse to resistance near $73.35.

With the 9, 18 and 40 EMAs stacked bullish and a bullish higher-timeframe trend, it’s reasonable to anticipate retracement to possible support before further bullish expansion. 

Near the 40 EMA, a broad zone from $67.12 to $64.35 could see interest from bulls before further expansion. If this level fails, bears might capitalise on any sharp moves down in Bitcoin, aiming for possible support near the 80% retracement, at $60.54, and potentially lower to a higher-timeframe support zone between $58.82 and $53.77.

If the higher-timeframe bullish trend resumes and the current resistance near $89.35 breaks, the wicks near $103.84 and the new monthly highs might see profit-taking.
