Terra price has joined selected altcoins like Solana. Litecoin, and Terra Luna Classic in posting significant gains in the first week of 2023. LUNA is up 4.2% over the last 24 hours and exchanging hands at $1.33 at the time of writing.
Following renewed interest among investors, trading volume jumped 54% to $35 million. Terra Luna is by far at the beginning of an uptrend, likely to explode 222% to tag $4.15.
Terra Price Embraces a Falling Wedge Pattern Breakout
Terra is one of the few cryptocurrencies starting the New Year on a positive note. Bulls started throwing their weight behind the token in December thanks to the slightly oversold conditions.
However, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) position in the neutral zone affirms that buyers now have the upper hand. The uptrend in LUNA might stay intact if the RSI continues with the steep climb to the overbought region.
A falling wedge, as illustrated on the daily timeframe chart, reveals that Terra is on the way to accomplishing a 222% breakout to $4.15. This is a bullish chart pattern that signals the end of a consolidation phase in the wake of an extended downtrend. It signifies the effort buyers are putting into the market to build interest ahead of a northbound pump.
Think of this pattern as a the “calm before the storm.” Traders generally look for a break above the upper trendline – one that must be confirmed by a daily close. Some traders will enter a long position immediately after the daily close, while others typically wait for a potential pullback in which the price retests the broken resistance.
In Terra’s case, the price is above the wedge pattern, awaiting a daily close. Short-term buy orders may be entered at this point, but investors wishing for a sustainable breakout, possibly leading to the 222% target might have to wait until LUNA steps above the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) (in red) at $1.54.
Traders who are not in for the long haul may aim to book profits at the 100-day EMA, currently holding the ground at $2.53. However, the falling wedge pattern recommends exiting at $4.15 after a 222% bullish move.
A glance at the four-hour timeframe chart adds credence to the bullish outlook, especially with Terra price trading above two major moving averages: The 50-day EMA at $1.29 and the 100-day EMA at $1.33.
LUNA also holds above the lower falling trend line (dotted), signaling the possibility of further gains. The RSI on the same chart reinforces the bulls’ grip on the price, although its arrival into the overbought region might call for a retracement before the uptrend resumes for a second leg.
Bullish traders could fire up their buy orders as soon as Terra price makes a four-hour to a daily close above the 100-day EMA. Such a move would pave the way to gains eyeing the upper trend line (continuous line). The next rendezvous bulls would be looking out for after this is the 200-day EMA (in purple) at $1.45 and the major resistance at $1.70.
On the flip side, Terra price may be in for a pullback if support at the 100-day EMA fails to hold. Traders who might be looking forward to shorting Luna must wait until the price confirms a daily close below the 100-day EMA. However, a break below the dotted trend line and, by extension, the 50-day EMA would signal a profound trend correction.
It is worth mentioning that Terra price may have bottomed, as it has stayed above solid support between $1.18 and $1.24. Therefore, a pullback should not scare investors since it may be an opportunity to pick up more liquidity, while allowing previously sidelined investors to get a piece of the cake before the forecasted move to $4.15.
