May 16, 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 33rd cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$1.23. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

Like many other altcoins, MANA set a high during Q1 before retracing 65% to the low at $0.7530 last week.

The price broke through resistance near $1.20, which may mark an area of possible support on a retracement. If this support fails, bulls might also step in near $1.13. However, a drop this far increases the chances of a stop run to $1.05 and possibly into support near $0.9425. For now, continuing recovery market conditions could help $1.10 become support.

The swing high around $1.40 gives bulls a reasonable first target, with $1.48 also likely to draw the price upward. Higher-timeframe resistance beginning near $1.60 or $1.65 could cap the move or trigger consolidations. If bullish market conditions continue, bulls might test probable resistance near new monthly highs around $1.74.

The Chainlink Network LINK is driven by a large open-source community of data providers, node operators, smart contract developers, researchers, security auditors and more. The company focuses on ensuring that decentralised participation is guaranteed for all node operators and users looking to contribute to the network. Chainlink allows blockchains to securely interact with external data feeds, events and payment methods, providing the critical off-chain information needed by complex smart contracts to become the dominant form of digital agreement.

At the time of writing, LINK is ranked the 25th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$7.59. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

LINK‘s early April trend retraced near $7.10 into the consolidation that began the impulse before bouncing to $7.66. 

This consolidation could provide support again, although bears would first have to push the price through possible support near $7.05. The market’s structure may be shifting bearish, with $7.98 likely to provide some resistance if this is the case. A sustained bearish move could reach the swing low near $6.89 before finding support near $6.77.

However, the bullish higher-timeframe trend might prevail, with relatively equal highs near $8.79 potentially giving an attractive target to lure the price over the monthly open. If so, the price could reach for the midpoint of the Q1 wick near $10.58.

3. 1inch (1INCH)

1INCH is a decentralised exchange (DEX) aggregator, connecting several DEXes into one platform to allow users to find the most efficient swapping routes across all platforms. In order for users to find the best price for a swap, they need to look at every exchange – DEX aggregators eliminate the need for manually checking, bringing efficiency to swapping on DEXes. 1inch has launched its 1INCH governance token, and the 1inch Network began to be governed by a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO).

1INCH Price Analysis

At the time of writing, 1INCH is ranked the 98th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.9458. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

After breaking its Q1 highs, 1INCH began a range that has been whiplashing both bulls and bears.

Resistance beginning near $1.45 held the price down for the second half of April, although bulls have shown some strength near the 9 and 18 EMAs. 

A quick push to $1.13, or into the zone beginning near $1.26, could give bulls the fuel to push through the nearby resistance. If this resistance breaks, the high near $1.34 provides a reasonable target. 

A break of this level could move further into uncharted territory with the nearest probable resistances projected around $1.40 and $1.45.

More patient bulls might be waiting far below the 40 EMA with bids near the higher-timeframe range’s 45% retracement, near $0.8540.
