Near Price Outlook

From January 2022 to October 2023, NEAR underwent a prolonged bear market, falling from a high of $20 in January 2022 into a multi-year decline. However, it reversed course and began a significant rally, climbing over 886% to reach $9 on March 15, 2024. This peak continued a bullish trend that began on January 23, following a dip to $2.40.

Wave analysis suggests this rally could be the first sub-wave of a five-wave upward pattern. The subsequent corrective stage saw a three-wave decline to a low of $4.50, first on April 13 and now to $4 on July 5, a 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level. 

The daily chart’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was oversold at 25% on June 25, which typically precedes a reversal. This decline could have marked the completion of its second sub-wave, or in other words, its first bull market correction. 

NEAR is expected to enter its next upward advancement wave soon, potentially climbing above $17 for its next higher high, reaching the 1.618 Fibonacci extension level. 

It has already slightly recovered and managed to maintain trading above $4.40. However, to confirm a starting bullish trend, we need to see it rise to $6 and make its first higher low since mid-March.

Once it does so, we can anticipate a new uptrend that could potentially lead NEAR to a new yearly high above $9.
