SUSHI/USD daily chart

On the daily chart, bulls have defended the 26-EMA once again, which has been a robust support level since November 13, 2020. The digital asset faces practically no resistance until $7.79 and aims to hit $8.

SUSHI IOMAP 

This bullish perspective is corroborated by the In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) model which shows only one significant barrier between $6.69 and $6.89. A breakout above this range can easily drive Sushi price towards $8.

However, the model also indicates that support below $6.5 is fairly weak. If bulls cannot push Sushi above the only resistance area seen on the IOMAP, the digital asset could fall towards $6.
