KSM/USD 12-hour chart

Bulls have pushed Kusama above the 50-SMA and the 100-SMA and are ready for a breakout above the upper trendline resistance level at $62. A push above this point will move Kusama up to $93. 

On the other hand, if the bulls slip up and lose both moving averages, the odds of a breakdown would increase. Losing the critical support level at $47 can quickly drive Kusama price towards $23.
