Key Takeaways

  • The PUPS memecoin surged 30%, nears key descending resistance.
  • A recent low at $32 might signal end of downtrend.
  • It is has recovered in the short-term, so there is the potential for a breakout.

In the ever-volatile world of cryptocurrency, the Bitcoin-based memecoin PUPS surged on April 24, spiking by 30%. As investors and crypto enthusiasts turn their attention to this lesser-known asset, PUPS approaches a crucial descending resistance level. 

With its price being in a downtrend since it hit the market, today’s development poses a question. Can PUPS maintain its upward trajectory, or will this resistance curtail its newfound momentum? 

PUPS Price Analysis 

When it entered the market, PUPS reached an all-time high of $150 on April 12. It quickly fell to $50 on the same day, decreasing by 66%, and recovered to $100 the next day. From April 13, we saw the formation of a descending triangle, which it still is, and whose descending resistance interaction we see today, April 24.

Analyzing the wave structure in the descending triangle, it is most likely a corrective WXYXZ sub-divided into three wave moves at each wave. This leads us to believe that its April 23 low of $32 could have been the completion of this stage as the Z wave ended. 

To further support this, we can see the hourly Relative Strength Index and MACD indicate the beginning of a new uptrend. However, considering the limited price history, it is still unknown whether this uptrend can be major, or just a short-lived recovery. 

Is a Breakout Ahead? 

Zooming in on the 15-minute chart and examining the structure further, we see that rejection took place at $43. PUPS is still in the confinement of its ascending channel. The support is being tested after the price spiked down to it in a 7% drop.

We most likely saw the first minor uptrend developing. The price is now forming the first lower high at the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level at $36. If the price finds higher support than on April 23, the likelihood of a breakout is very high.

In that case, we can project a target of $54 at its next uptrend. It could even go beyond $62, if this is a new, more significant, five-wave impulse.
