OMG succumbed to the increased selling pressure leading to significant sabotage to the progress made in August. From the high traded in August at $9.50, OMG Network plummeted to $3.30. At the time of writing, the crypto is trading at $3.80.

OMG Network technical analysis

After trading highs of $9.50, OMG/USD embarked on gains trimming exercise. Support at $5.00 was just, but a pit stop as the price quickly continued with the downtrend below a descending trendline. Support established at $3.30 cushioned the cryptocurrency from sinking deeper into the rabbit hole.

A recovery ensued following the support pulling OMG above $3.50. The formation of a descending triangle delayed the uptrend. However, a breakout above the triangle suggests a big chance for a massive flight, eyeing $5.50.

From a technical perspective, the breakout is well supported and, therefore, likely to occur. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has commenced a gradual move towards the overbought region. This indicator is standard in technical analysis because you can tell the strength of a particular trend (bearish or bullish) with it. For now, the trend is strongly bullish. If the 50 Simple Moving Average resistance at $4.00 is overcome, the price will quickly climb to the next hurdle at the 100 SMA ($4.70). Some more seller congestion is expected at $5.0 before OMG completes the leg up to $5.0.

OMG/USD price chart

The weekly chart still highlights the presence of both buying and selling pressure. However, buyers have a fighting opportunity and could take back control. Consolidation is likely between the recent support at $3.40 and the resistance at $4.0. The price is trading above the moving averages, suggesting that all is not lost for the bulls. Besides, the Elliot Wave Oscillator continues to print a bullish session supporting the recovery push from the bulls’ camp. In other words, the eventual winners of this tug of war are likely to be the bulls but expect a gradual recovery in the near term.
