Avalanche [AVAX] Price Ready for a Bullish Breakout?
The volatility in the AVAX market is up, so is the trading volume which can support the ongoing uptrend. The price has been oscillating between the trendlines of a descending parallel channel which could mean a potential bullish breakout in the near term. If the current price candle manages to climb above the 50 daily moving average [Pink], all the bearish cues will be invalidated.
The 100 DMA [Blue] and the 200 DMA [Yellow] continued to hover below the AVAX candles supporting the price from an event of a market downturn.
Sellers’ dominance is dwindling as depicted by the upward-sloping daily Relative Strength Index [RSI] that eyed for the 50-median line. The MACD also demonstrated a similar sentiment as it poised for a bullish crossover after two weeks.
The overall market sentiment is optimistic and Avalanche [AVAX] appears to be headed for a serious bullish spin.

Besides, Avalanche Bridge, which transfers assets to and from Ethereum, is yet another factor that could have contributed to the rising TVL. Not to forget, the 180 million liquidity mining incentive program called, ‘Avalanche Rush,‘ seemed to have driven the growth of Avalanche, AAVE, as well as Curve networks. Hence, it is not surprising that a rise in terms of total value locked [TVL] paved the way for positive price implications.
