Following Argentina’s shock defeat to Saudi Arabia at the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the country’s fan token ARG dropped by as much as 30%.

Affected by Argentina’s 1:2 upset loss to Saudi Arabia in the World Cup, the Argentine football fan token ARG fell by more than 30%, to a minimum of $4.56. The “Saudis” NFT project saw a 15% rise in the floor price. https://t.co/JdhsTMPh63

According to CryptoSlate data, the token traded for as low as $4.96 before rebounding to above $5.

This was a direct impact of the South American team’s poor performance in its opening match. The Lionel Messi-captained team was the firm favorite to win the game and also one of the favorites to win the tournament.

The price movement reflects how sports team performance could impact the value of fan tokens linked to such teams.

The token was launched in July 2021 and peaked at $9.19 on Nov. 18, 2022 -when the current World Cup started.

Saudi NFTs rise

Meanwhile, the Saudis NFT project, a collection of 5,555 NFTs, saw its floor price increase by 15% after the match to 0.258 ETH, according to NFTgo data.

Data from the site showed that the floor price was up by 38% within 24 hours, while trading volume have increased by 1,694% to 43.43 ETH.

  • UNI could reach the 50% Fib level in the next few days or weeks if BTC maintains its uptrend 
  • UNI’s open interest is rising, which is a bullish outlook for derivatives markets

Like the rest of the altcoins, Uniswap [UNI] also rallied after BTC regained the $16,000 level on 22 November. At press time, it was trading at $5.80 and was in an uptrend. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) also gave investors a buy signal through its bullish crossover. 

However, the price rally faced significant resistance, which cautious traders should watch out for before going long on UNI.

We have a buy signal, but can the uptrend last?

In October, UNI  witnessed a major rally that extended into November before the FTX saga put the brakes on it. Subsequent recovery attempts after the market crash established $5.28 as solid support for the bulls.  

At press time, UNI was poised for another rally after BTC attempted to reclaim $17K. A bullish MACD crossover provided buying opportunities for UNI traders. However, the question was: Is the buy signal solid and could the uptrend continue? 

A key technical indicator showed that the uptrend could sustain momentum. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) retreated from the lower part of the selling range with a steep rise. This showed that the selling pressure had eased, and the bulls were able to prop up UNI’s price.  

The On-Balance Volume (OBV) also showed a rise in the upper range despite an almost flat profile since 21 November. This showed that there was a significant trading volume that could increase buying pressure.  

If the bulls maintain the above leverage, they could break the 38.2% level ($5.89) and target the 50% Fib level ($6.25). However, an intraday close below the current support at $5.28 could negate the above inclination.

UNI sees an increasing Open Interest

Source: Coinglass

According to Coinglass, UNI saw conflicting open interest trends in November. After the market crashed in early November, UNI’s open interest rose steadily, only to drop again starting in mid-November.  

At press time, a rising open interest could be seen towards the end of November. This showed that money was flowing into the derivatives market of UNI.

Furthermore, this also indicated a bullish outlook in the derivatives market, which could soon spill over into the spot market. In this case, the upward momentum of UNI could continue if BTC continues to trend upward.

Biggest Movers: LTC Nears 6-Month High, As Near Rebounds From Recent Lows

Biggest Movers: LTC Nears 6-Month High, As Near Rebounds From Recent Lows

Litecoin has been a notable mover on Nov. 30, as the token edged closer to a recent six month high. Following yesterday’s gains, cryptocurrency prices remained in the green on Wednesday, with the global market capitalization up 2.07% as of writing this. Near protocol also surged today, as prices rebounded from recent lows.

Litecoin

Litecoin (LTC) moved closer to a six month high on Wednesday, as the token rose for a second straight session.

LTC/USD rallied to an intraday high of $79.73 earlier in today’s session, less than 24-hours after trading at a low of $75.21.

The move saw LTC climb to its highest point since last Wednesday, when the token hit a high of $83.43.

LTC/USD – Daily Chart

This was the strongest point litecoin was trading at since May 10, and comes as the relative strength index (RSI) rebounded from a recent floor.

As of writing this, the index is currently tracking at 65.48, which is above a support point of 61.45.

Earlier gains have somewhat eased, with LTC now trading at $78.04. Despite this, bulls likely will still be targeting a move above $80.00.

Near Protocol

Near protocol (NEAR) was another notable gainer on Wednesday, as prices continued to move away from recent lows.

Following a low of $1.59 on Tuesday, NEAR/USD surged to an intraday high of $1.73 earlier today.

As a result of this, near protocol moved away from its long-term support point of $1.50, and is now nearing a resistance point of $1.75.

NEAR/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, the RSI is now hovering slightly above a ceiling of 35.00, and is tracking at 35.07.

As of writing this, NEAR has fallen below earlier highs of $1.73, and is currently trading at $1.70.

Should price strength continue to move above its current ceiling, we will likely see the token race past the $1.75 point, and edge closer to $2.00.

Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC Moves Above $17,000 On Wednesday

Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC Moves Above $17,000 On Wednesday

Bitcoin moved to $17,000 on Wednesday, as markets continued to digest the U.S. consumer confidence report. Confidence amongst consumers fell to its lowest level since July, despite inflation easing in the world’s largest economy. Ethereum remained higher, edging closer to $1,300.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) briefly rose above $17,000 in today’s session, as traders reacted to the latest U.S. consumer confidence report.

Despite falling to a six-month low, the decline in confidence was less than expected, which was a relatively positive sign for markets.

Following a low of $16,366.66, BTC/USD rose to an intraday peak of $17,021.67 earlier in the day.

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

However, following the breakout of $17,000, which has also been a long-term resistance level, some earlier bulls moved to secure gains, exiting their positions in the process.

As of writing, BTC is trading at $16,832.07, with the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) tracking at 45.72, below a ceiling of 46.00.

Should price strength continue in an upward direction, and move beyond this upcoming obstacle, then bitcoin could extend today’s rally.

Ethereum

Like BTC, ethereum (ETH) also moved higher on Wednesday, as prices surged for a second success session.

Advertisement

ETH/USD hit a peak of $1,276.55 earlier in today’s session, which comes less than 24-hours after trading at a low of $1,205.78.

As a result of today’s gains, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency hit its highest point since November 15.

ETH/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, the move has pushed the 10-day (red) moving average closer to its 25-day (blue) counterpart, with an upward crossover imminent.

In addition to this, the RSI is now tracking at 51.27, which is above a key resistance level at the 50.00 mark.

The target for ETH bulls appears to be the $1,300 level, which was last hit on November 11, when the coin was at a peak of $1,307.
