STX Price Prediction: How Long Will Increase Continue?
The daily timeframe price action and RSI support the ongoing STX price increase.
Firstly, the price action shows that STX broke out from a long-term descending resistance trendline on October 16. Two days later, it broke out from the aforementioned $0.53 horizontal resistance area.
With the RSI as a momentum indicator, traders can determine whether a market is overbought or oversold and decide whether to accumulate or sell an asset.
Bulls have an advantage if the RSI reading is above 50. But, the opposite is true if the reading is below 50.
The RSI is above 50 and increasing, both signs of a bullish trend. Additionally, it has generated bullish divergence before the breakout, further supporting the upward movement.
If the increase continues, the two closest resistance areas will be at $0.82 and $1.20. The resistances are 30 and 85% above the current price, respectively.STX/USDT Daily Chart. Source: TradingView
Despite this bullish STX price prediction, failure to sustain the increase can lead to a 15% drop in the $0.54 horizontal support area.
Currently, there are no signs that this will be the case.
