Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: ORN, KCS, AVAX – May 27 Trading Analysis

May 27, 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. Orion Protocol (ORN)

Orion ORN aims to solve the difficulties in performing profitable transactions associated with the lack of liquidity on the majority of crypto exchanges. This is the case for both centralised and decentralised exchanges. Orion’s solution to this is to aggregate exchanges’ order books into one simple-to-use-and-understand terminal.

The Orion Protocol’s goal is to help users get the best returns out of their investments while also lowering the risks associated with using multiple exchanges.

ORN Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ORN is ranked the 420th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$1.38. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

After a 70% retracement from its March highs, ORN found a temporary low near $1.30. A recent move above $1.50 could be the first sign of a bullish shift – but could also signal a stop run before the next drop lower. 

If the market adopts a more bullish tone, the price could run through the most recent swing high. If this bounce occurs, it would likely find some resistance near $1.65, possibly reaching up to $1.86.

However, a move below the closest support near $1.26 makes stop runs on the swing lows near $1.22 and $1.20 likely. A confluence of several levels near $1.17 could provide a temporary bounce. Still, a sustained bearish market will likely target $1.15 and even $1.06.

2. KuCoin Token (KCS)

KCS is the native token of KuCoin, launched in 2017 as a profit-sharing token that allows traders to draw value from the exchange. It was issued as an ERC-20 token running on the Ethereum network and was supported by most Ethereum wallets. The total supply of KCS was set at 200 million, and there is a planned buyback and burn until just 100 million KCS remain. Sooner or later, as the KuCoin decentralised trading solution goes live, KCS will be the native asset of KuCoin’s decentralised financial services as well as the governance token of the KuCoin community in the future.

KCS Price Analysis

At the time of writing, KCS is ranked the 40th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$15.84. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

KCS has been trading through a massive range during Q1, with the price showing mild bullishness during March.

Bulls bought near $12.20. The weekly level and daily gap near $13.90 could prompt buyers to step in again as the price challenges the swing high and resistance around $16.50. A strong move and acceptance above this level may reach for the swing highs at $18.75 and $19.66, which mark another area of resistance.

However, rejection from the current area may send the price down to retest support near $13.40. Relatively equal lows around $12.78 provide a rich target for a stop run. Sustained bearishness may reach the low near $11.90 and possibly as low as $11.14 into higher-timeframe support.

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 14th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$24.99. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

Source: TradingView

AVAX‘s gains during Q1 ended with an almost 69% retracement as the rest of the altcoin market dropped from early this month. Bulls stepped in near the 52.8% retracement of Q2’s move, creating a consolidation that ended with the bullish impulse to resistance near $44.35.

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 $35.15 to $29.45 could see interest from bulls before further expansion. Bears might capitalise on any sharp moves down in Bitcoin, aiming for possible support near the 70% retracement, at $23.70, and potentially lower to a higher-timeframe support zone between $21.42 and $20.80.

If the higher-timeframe recovery trend resumes and the current resistance near $37.35 breaks, the wicks near $49.84 and the new monthly highs may see profit-taking.
