This Tuesday, the price has bounced up from the lower curve of the 20-day Bollinger Band. Mirroring the price, the relative strength index (RSI) has gone up slightly from 35.75 to 37. The 20-day Bollinger jaw has constricted, which indicates decreasing price volatility.

COMP IOMAP

IntoTheBlock’s “In/Out of the Money Around Price” (IOMAP) model estimates that $141.75 plays a vital role in Compound’s trend. Transaction history shows that this is the largest resistance wall above the erstwhile DeFi leader that could reverse the upcoming bullish trend. In the $141.75-level, nearly 400 addresses are holding a little over 43,000 COMP tokens.

On the downside, if the bears take back control, the drop in price could be catastrophic. The lack of healthy support walls shows that the price may drop all the way down to $129.50 under selling pressure.
