A layer 1 smart contract platform, Fantom (FTM), has been outperforming the market this week, going from a low of $0.16 to nearly $0.25, a move of more than 50%. With Bitcoin breaching $17,000 further upside for FTM can also be expected in December.
The token is currently trading slightly under major resistance – its 200-day EMA is situated at $0.275. It has taken several intense rallies to get here, which means it is now in overbought territory and likely to reject from these levels.
But an impulsive move as the one it had this week also suggests that follow-through is likely. We may see sideways consolidation before another push all the way to the .618 retracement of its recent downtrend – located at $0.32.
FTM has already been rejected from this level previously, but if the crypto market remains positive, this level can be breached. Especially since it is trading above its 50-day EMA – a short-term bullish signal. Investors looking for a swing long should buy on dips, especially at support near $0.225 to $0.207, and look to take some profits around the $0.32-0.36 target, the expert suggested.
Support: $0.22, $0.208
Resistance: $0.26, $0.275, $0.31
