KAS token has been on a remarkable ascent since October 15, surging by an impressive 265%. Yesterday, November 16, it reached its pinnacle at $0.148, but a rapid descent to $0.12 followed, resulting in a significant 15% wick on the daily chart.
Its last rise was made parabolically and with strong momentum, without consolidations. The abruptness of this climb raises questions about potential resistance and whether it signifies the early stages of a reversal in KAS’s positive momentum.
After reaching its last all-time high of $0.052 on August 5, KAS made a 37% retracement to $0.033 on September 5. From there, it returned to revisit its highs and started moving sideways and did so for 50 days straight.
Upon reaching the apex of the ascending triangle, a breakout to the upside was made, leading it to its next all-time high, close to $0.15. This last uptrend for KAS started on October 15, and with no signs of encountered sellers, pressure could have been completed.
This is also indicated by the RSI, which reached the overbought zone on November 4 and peaked on November 9 at 90%. But the November 9 high only caused a minor retracement, with the KAS price further headed to the upside for another 87% increase from the November 15 low of $0.079.
Was this the end of its upward trajectory for now?
Zooming into the hourly chart, we can see that Kaspa’s rise from November 14 is also subdivided into five waves. This indicates that it likely ended or is near completion, especially as we saw it encountering intense seller pressure.
The end of this advancement marked the completion of the higher degree that started from its October 15 low, so we are now primarily expecting a more significant descending move. Measuring with the Fibonacci retracement tool, we came up with a price target of $0.082, where the 0.618 level is.
However, if our count is correct and yesterday’s high was the end of the larger uptrend, we could see the price heading into a sustainable downtrend below $0.082.
