Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: MANA, AVAX, MATIC – July 8 Trading Analysis

July 08, 2022, 8:00 AM AEST - 1 month ago

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. Decentraland (MANA)

Decentraland MANA defines itself as a virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to create, experience, and monetise content and applications. In this virtual world, users purchase plots of land that they can later navigate, build on and monetise. Decentraland uses two tokens: MANA and LAND. MANA is an ERC-20 token that must be burned to acquire non-fungible ERC-721 LAND tokens. MANA tokens can also be used to pay for a range of avatars, wearables, names and more on the Decentraland marketplace.

MANA Price Analysis

At the time of writing, MANA is ranked the 32nd cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.9282. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

Like many other altcoins, MANA set a high during Q1 and Q2 before retracing 70% to the low at $0.7330 last month.

The price broke through resistance near $0.9134, which may mark an area of possible support on a retracement. If this support fails, bulls might also step in near $0.8713. However, a drop this far increases the chances of a stop run to $0.8105 and possibly into support near $0.7825. For now, continuing recovery market conditions could help $0.7510 become support.

The swing high around $1.10 gives bulls a reasonable first target, with $1.18 also likely to draw the price upward. Higher-timeframe resistance beginning near $1.29 or $1.37 could cap the move or trigger consolidations. If bullish market conditions continue, bulls might test probable resistance near new monthly highs around $1.45.

2. 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 also 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 15th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$20.16. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

AVAX‘s gains in Q2 ended with an almost 75% retracement as the rest of the altcoin market dropped from early last month. Bulls stepped in near the 62.8% retracement of Q2’s move, creating a consolidation that ended with the bullish impulse to resistance near $30.35.

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 $18.15 to $17.45 could see interest from bulls before further expansion. Bears might capitalise on any sharp moves down in Bitcoin, aiming for possible support near the 75% retracement, at $16.30, and potentially lower to a higher-timeframe support zone between $15.72 and $14.80.

If the higher-timeframe recovery trend resumes and the current resistance near $24.35 breaks, the wicks near $28.84 and the new monthly highs may see profit-taking.

3. Polygon (MATIC)

Polygon MATIC is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building multiple types of applications. The MATIC token will continue to exist and will play an increasingly important role in securing the system and enabling governance.

MATIC Price Analysis

At the time of writing, MATIC is ranked the 18th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.5669. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

Since its Q1 highs, MATIC has been in a steady bearish trend, retracing nearly 75%. The price found support near $0.3820, at the 65.8% retracement level.

Last week’s sharp impulse up might have marked the start of a new trend. If so, higher timeframes suggest that $0.5139, near the 45.8% retracement and the 9, 18 and 40 EMAs, may see interest from bulls. The price could reach lower, near $0.4720, and still find support.

Currently, the price is contesting a region between $0.4539 and $0.4325. Closes over this level could confirm it as new support, leading to a move higher.

However, bulls are contending with probable resistance near $0.6931, while $0.7530 is also likely to be sensitive with the nearest support and resistance this close together.
