Although gaining massive impetus, IOTA is often surrounded by news such as it is dead. Is it already? Let’s get into the YTD price movement of the coin against the greenback to reflect the current price action of the crypto.
IOTA Price Analysis
At the time of penning down this analysis, IOTA was seen trading 2 cents above $0.30 at $0.326 after a clear steep rise in the price. IOTA price action on the daily chart has been intraday bullish after ten weeks of clear consolidation and a choppy price trend.
With a steep rise in IOTA’s price, the price trend breached the upper BB on the daily chart against the US Dollar. However, if the currency continues to draw a higher high pattern, it is likely to mark another high in the first half of 2021.
However, the answer to the question Is IOTA Dead lies in reflecting its price movement throughout the year until the time of writing. The coin clearly gained in the first half of the year after the significant YTD bounce in March to as low as $0.059. However, if we reflect the growth of the coin from $0.059 to the YTD high at $0.45, IOTA has strengthened by over 650% in approximately five months, which definitely confirms that IOTA is not dead.
However, the intermittent dips and lack of traction might draw bearish crossovers in between, but the current steep rise is necessarily hinting at a bullish divergence on the MACD chart. The RSI is also seen breaching the overbought zone due to price lead spiked demand, lying at 70.19.
