Given the sideways trading, IOTA’s native token has formed a pennant pattern. This could very well be broken in the near-future. The price is trading ever so tightly to the supporting trend line and the above descending line of resistance. In proximity to current levels, sees the 50DMA, which is also containing any upside breakout, for now. The bulls will need to push above the mentioned resistance, tracking at $0.58. This could be very inviting for some further buying pressure. Eyes would then naturally be on the above supply area, seen from $0.75-$0.80. The price has not been seen in this territory since the back-end of August – early September. This range of supply would need to be cleared for $1.00 to come back into the picture again. In terms of support, as mentioned that sits very tightly to current levels. The lower part of the pennant, which is seen at $0.54 area. Further south sees a demand area, $0.45-$0.40. An area where the price bounced on 14th August, to start a trend of recovery from the falling market.
