Can MANA defy the odds and hit $1.5?
Although we expected the market to bounce back slightly after this week’s crash, MANA appears to have just exploded. After adding nearly 60% in value over the last 24 hours, the coin is now trying to consolidate above the crucial $1 mark.
So far, things are looking good. While some investors fear that the rally could correct steeply, if the price stays above $1, then there will be enough buyer confidence to push MANA towards $1.5. Besides, momentum indicators like the RSI appear to suggest that MANA’s recent run is far from over.
But there are some important downside risk factors to keep in mind. First, MANA has outperformed the broader market in its recovery. If there is any slight decline in crypto over the coming days, MANA losses could be much bigger compared to other major coins. Also, the metaverse token still remains pressured below its 50- and 200-day EMAs. These two points present stiff upward resistance that will make the idea of $1.5 improbable in the short term.
What to do with MANA right now?
The best thing to do would be to just watch. Yes, even though we think the coin could test $1.5, the downside risks are still huge.
If indeed the metaverse coin is able to maintain the price above $1 at the start of trading on Monday, then you can buy and cash out at $1.5.
