  • Ontology price has defined a two-year base.
  • Impressive recovery from the December 2020 low driven by heavy buying.
  • Handle development is removing the extreme overbought condition.

Ontology price, over the last two years, has carved out a cup-with-handle base with significant upside potential in the short and long-term. Strong volume and an extreme overbought condition demonstrate the upward momentum off the December lows.

Ontology price nearing a Golden Cross

From the December 2020 low to the February high at $1.66, Ontology climbed almost 700% and formed the right side of the cup-with-handle base. The handle may take some time to complete in order for the symmetry of the base to be aligned.  

A daily close above the handle high at $1.66 will alert traders to the new opportunity. The immediate upside potential is the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level at $2.57, representing a 55% gain. A Golden Cross of the 40-week simple moving average (SMA) above the 100-week SMA would further confirm the breakout.

From a longer-term perspective, the outlook is equally bullish with a measured move target of $13.23 exceeding the all-time high of $12.21 and representing a 700% gain from the handle high.
