Kyber Network eyes symmetrical triangle breakout

The four-hour chart reveals the formation of a symmetrical triangle. This chart pattern is molded by converging a couple of trend lines that link a sequence of peaks and troughs. Generally, the lines are expected to cross at an approximately equal slope. The pattern brings to light a period of consolidation ahead of either a breakout or a breakdown.

A breakdown occurs from the ascending trendline and identifies the beginning of a downtrend. On the other hand, a breakout appears at the descending trendline and denotes the start of a bullish trend.

Symmetrical patterns tend to have precise price targets for breakouts or breakdowns, mainly measured from the highest point to the lowest points. For instance, Kyber Network is likely to swing massively north and achieve another record high milestone around $4.9 on breaking beyond the upper trend line.

The bullish outlook seems to have been validated by IntoTheBlock’s IOMAP model. This on-chain metric shows that the path ahead of Kyber Network is not laced with robust seller congestion zones.

Meanwhile, some delays should be expected between $2.76 and $2.83. Here, 712 addresses previously scooped up around 2.7 million KNC. Trading above this slight resistance would validate the breakout toward $4.9.

On the downside, Kyber Network is sitting on top of an immense buyer congestion zone, running from $2.63 to $2.7. Here, 420 addresses previously purchased roughly 11 million KNC. Other relatively more substantial support levels exist below this robust zone; thus, it would be challenging for bears to stage a significant breakdown.

Looking at the other side of the fence

Kyber Network hit a wall under $3, delaying the upswing to $4.9. A correction appears to be gaining traction, as observed with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the 12-hour chart.

The RSI also features a bearish divergence, further cementing the pessimistic outlook. Closing the day under $3 could also trigger massive losses, accentuated by a symmetrical triangle breakdown.
