Uniswap eyes a 30% breakdown

The TD Sequential indicator has presented a sell signal on the 12-hour chart. The call to sell took the form of a green nine candlestick. If validated, Uniswap may correct in one to four daily candlesticks.

Simultaneously, the chart shows that UNI drops between 30% and 40% every time a sell signal flashes. Therefore, the current bearish call could see the cryptocurrency fall under $10 and perhaps retest support at $9.

According to Michaël van de Poppe, a renowned analyst, Uniswap is on the brink of a downswing to $9, where he says that he will buy the dip. He affirmed that DeFi is a massive sector in the cryptocurrency industry and worth focusing on throughout the end of 2021.

The network growth has been consistent since January 11, from a monthly low of roughly 1,200 addresses to 3,300 by January 26. An increase in network growth is a bullish signal for the future price of the token.

At the same time, it shows the token and network are expanding. Moreover, this metric indicates that Uniswap has an optimum token inflow and outflow, likely to give way to an increase in value.
