When looking at the chart above, it could be seen that MKR is nearing a Golden Cross. The 50-day MA (purple) is approaching the 200-day MA (orange) from below. If these two lines were to cross, a Golden Cross could happen and MKR could drastically rise. However, the RSI indicator reads 69.49 on its scale and is almost at the overbought region, hence, the market could correct the prices and MKR could drop.
In December 2021, both the 50-day MA and the 200-day MA came within close quarters, but they did not intersect, hence, the Golden Cross did not happen. When comparing the 2022 pseudo-Golden Cross approach and the present approach, there is one similarity that could be spotted. Notably, on both occasions, MKR hit the upper Bollinger band. Hence, could this be another pseudo-Golden Cross?
But, what if the golden cross actually happens? We will search for answers to this criteria by comparing the previous golden cross with the present. The build-up to the Golden Cross in August 2022 was quite drastic, however, the prices did not really get going even after the intersection of the two lines, as it touched the upper Bollinger band. In fact, there was a drop in prices and MKR resorted to assistance from the nearest support.
When considering the approach to the present golden cross, the build-up before the golden cross looks promising. Nonetheless, MKR has touched the upper Bollinger bands like the previous time, hence, the market could correct the prices. In the event of the market correcting the price, MKR could seek support close to $690-$700. If this happens, this would present an entry point for traders.
Moreover, widening Bollinger bands suggest that there could be more volatility in the market. As such, scalpers and intra-day traders should be vigilant to make the most when the opportunity presents itself.
