UNI/USD technical analysis: unstoppable bullish trend – UNI is heading towards $15

UNI has been in a strong bull trend since late December, with price pushing up with more confidence in 2021. After passing the $10.89 mark three days ago, UNI took a whole day to consolidate and confirm its position above this level before pushing further up. This made the upswing more healthy and more reliable, which could, in turn, result in a stronger push or a much smaller retracement.

Uniswap’s push towards the upside is most likely not over yet, as the vast majority of analysts are calling for a $15 UNI in the short-term.

UNI’s immediate support levels are mostly shown on smaller time-frames, while its first strong support shown on the daily time-frame is the 21.6% Fib retracement, sitting at $10.89. On the other hand, its upside is guarded by the ATH level of $13.714, while the zone above it doesn’t have any resistance levels set.

If we zoom in to UNI’s hourly time-frame, we can see the final stages of its uptrend, where the price bounced off of the 50-hour EMA two times, and pushed to the upside with heavy volume both times. The most recent surge has brought UNI’s price to a new all-time high of $13.714.

UNI is currently consolidating right below the all-time high level, and still has a chance of going further up. On the other hand, its downside is well-protected by the 21-hour and 50-hour EMAs.
