Technically, the price is in the hands of the buyers. Moreover, IOTA has continued to increase the gap above the moving averages. Meanwhile, the 200-day SMA is ready to function as a support area in case of a reversal targeting $0.20. The 50-day SMA is moving fast towards the 200-day SMA. If the short term moving average cross above the long term 200 SMA, IOTA price could spike even further towards $0.30.

For now, the language the chart is speaking is mainly bullish, especially with the price above the green Ichimoku Kinko Hyo. In addition to that, the RSI is back in the overbought region as the MACD trends higher within the positive region. A break above $0.30 would pave the way for gains towards $0.40; which would be a great milestone for IOTA bulls.
