UNI/USD: 12-hour chart

As observed in the 12-hour (12H) chart, Uniswap has confirmed a classic rising wedge breakdown on Wednesday and since then it has been in a bearish consolidation phase.

The horizontal 100-simple moving average (SMA) at $3.10 has saved the day for the UNI bulls, for now, as the bearish Relative Strength Index (RSI) has recovered from the troughs and turned flat, currently at 45.83.

A breach of the 100-SMA support could intensify the selling pressure, exposing the measured pattern target at $1.068. Alternatively, acceptance above the bearish 21-SMA at $3.68 is critical to negate the near-term downside bias.

Despite the recovery attempt, the downside in Uniswap appears more compelling amid downbeat fundamentals, in the face of a slump in network growth, as indicated by Santiment, a leading provider of on-chain metrics.

“In the last seven days, the number of new addresses decreased significantly. The addresses topped 2,300 on November 17 but slumped to 1,146 by November 26, representing a 50% decline. The downtrend in network growth is a red flag for price growth in the short term,” FXStreet’s Cryptocurrencies News Editor John Isige explains.
