IOTA Price Aims For A 20% Rise

The IOTA price prediction is strongly bullish as buyers are bolstered by the positive fundamentals to push the price higher. At the time of writing, MIOTA is hovering around $1.264 on most crypto trading platforms. IOTA/USD price appears to be battling immediate resistance at the $1.30 level embraced by the 200-day SMA.

Note that MIOTA price needs to rise above this level and flip the 200-day SMA to support in order to sustain the bullish momentum. If this happens, the next logical move will be a rise to the $1.40 psychological level, indicating a decisive upward breakout. This will bolster bulls to push IOTA towards at $1.50, above the June 03 range high. This will represent a 20% rise from the current price.

Technical indicators as seen on the daily chart validate the bullish bias. For example, the upsloping moving averages, and parabolic SAR which flipped from negative to positive yesterday show that DLT token is strongly bullish.

In addition, the sharp rise of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) towards the overbought zone shows that the bears are in control of MIOTA.

Moreover, the position of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator above the zero line in the positive region adds credence to this bullish bias. Also note that the MACD sent a call to buy on the 12-hour timeframe yesterday. This occurred when the MACD line (blue) crossed above the signal line (orange) triggering buy orders that resulted in the rally experienced over the last 24 hours.

On the flip side, if the IOTA closes the day below the immediate support at $1.127, the MIOTA price will slide towards the 100- and 50-day SMA at $0.9468 and $0.9195 respectively.
