Daily chart for FTM/USDT (Source: TradingView)
The price of FTM is resting on the daily support level at $0.04248 after dropping below the 9-day and 20-day EMA lines on 8 February, 2023.
Technical indicators suggest that FTM’s price is currently in a bearish cycle. The first technical indicator that suggests this is the MACD Signal line positioned below the MACD SMA line. However, the MACD Histogram suggests that the bearish cycle may be reaching its peak.
On the other hand, the 9-day EMA line is looking to cross bearishly below the 20-day EMA line. Should this happen, then FTM’s price will likely continue to drop in the coming days. As such, FTM’s price may look to target the next support level at $0.3581. The latest flow of FTM onto exchanges may be an early sign of a sell-off for the altcoin.
