Elrond price has been trending sideways with a mild uptrend since the sharp collapse in late February. The resulting ascending triangle pattern has been trying to resolve upwards since April 2. Today, EGLD is attempting to breakout for the fourth time, with a gain of 12.7% at the time of writing. It would be the second-largest daily return since the February high.

On February 8, Elrond price hit $236.55, slightly exceeding the 1.618 Fibonacci extension of the 2019-2020 bear market at $234.44.   EGLD began a decline of 60% the following day before bottoming near the 50-day simple moving average (SMA).

Today’s rally is stalling just above the 0.786 retracement level of the February correction at $191.96. A successful close above that level will put EGLD on pace to test the all-time high and the Fibonacci extension mentioned in the above paragraph.

The measured move target based on the ascending triangle pattern is $253.21, yielding a 50% gain. Aggressive targets include the 1.382 extension level of the February correction at $343.41 and then the 1.618 extension level at $432.35.
