The Netflow chart  shows a larger dip of 3,7 million FTM being withdrawn from exchanges into private wallets. This indicates accumulation activity, and with today’s price spike, investors believe the price will rise further. 

FTM Price Analysis 

Fantom initiated a new bull cycle after bottoming out at $0.17 on October 18, 2023. Subsequently, it reached its yearly high of $1.20 on March 22. This peak was followed by a significant 55% drop to $0.56 on April 13.

The pattern of Fantom’s price movements included a three-wave corrective phase after a five-wave uptrend, validating the notion that the price was in a correction. This was confirmed by a 38% recovery to nearly $0.80 by April 21.

The breakout above the descending trendline further verified the onset of an uptrend. On May 20, the price reached a new high of nearly $1, surpassing the April 22 high. Its following downtrend was stopped at the April 22 high, making a sharp upturn and suggesting a possibility FTM is in a five-wave pattern. 

Should the rise continue to another higher high, we would see a five-wave move and receive confirmation that FTM is starting a new bull phase that could lead to a new yearly high above $1.50. 

However, if the price reverses below May’s high, FTM could face more downside potential, with $0.50 zone being its next likely target.
