Avalanche price action has remained bearish on the chart at the time of writing. AVAX has maintained the price above its support line of $22. Right after the coin surged and revisited the $24 mark, it started to retrace on its chart.
This is a price correction as Avalanche price showed appreciation over the last two weeks. At the moment Avalanche is witnessing a profit booking which has caused buying strength to fade away over the last few days.
Incase Avalanche price manages to push above the $25 price zone, the bullish force might gain strength. Buyers can again find their way back to the market if AVAX falls on its chart which in turn could trigger another rally.
Broader crypto market strength also remains low with BTC crawling below the $23,000 price mark. Ethereum too extended losses over the last 24 hours. Most altcoins followed the same price trajectory.
For Avalanche price to reclaim its immediate resistance of $24.8, strength from buyers remain crucial. The global cryptocurrency market cap today is at $1.1 Trillion with a 2.5% fall in the last 24 hours.
