XTZ/US: Technical picture

XTZ/USD settled above the local resistance level created by SMA50 1-hour at $1.4300. However, a stronger barrier awaits the coin at  $1.5450. SMA100 1-hour located on approach to this line stopped XTZ recovery on Sunday. If it is broken, the upside will gain traction with the next target at $1.75 (March 15 high), followed by psychological $1.80 and $1.84 (March 14 high).

On the downside, the initial support is created by the above-mentioned SMA50 1-hour (currently at $1.4300). Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $1.40, followed by the intraday low of $1.2922. The next support comes at $1.2700 and psychological $1.2000. This area will slow down the decline; however, once it is broken, psychological $1.000 will come into view.
