  • IOTA’s rejection from $0.25 could be the key for a run-up to $0.30 as it helps to create demand at lower price levels.
  • US tech giant Intel new patent describes IOTA’s Tangle technology as a possible solution for fog computing.

The cryptocurrency market is finally in the green for the first time this week. However, the green has only been made possible by a selloff that took place during the European session on Thursday. Bitcoin tanked after hitting a wall close to $10,000. The fall extended towards $9,000 dragging the entire market with it including IOTA. IOT/USD was also rejected at $0.25, encouraging more bears to enter the market. A weekly low at $0.2201 slowed down the momentum, giving the digital asset balance.

At the time of writing, IOTA is has made a shallow recovery from $0.2201 to the prevailing market value of $0.2273. Interestingly, the price is still above the moving averages. Moreover, a possible cross by the 50 SMA above the 200-day SMA would signal incoming bullish volatility, likely to pull IOTA upwards.

In addition to that, IOTA is also trading above the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo. As long as the price maintains in this position, bulls will also stick to the controls. The RSI in the daily range is also recovering from the dip while the MACD is sitting comfortably in the positive region. For IOTA, the dive to $0.2201 could be the best move made to clear the stubborn resistance at $0.25. Fresh demand created at the lower price levels could also give way to higher seller congestion zones including $0.30 and $0.35.
