Biggest Movers: XMR Moves to 10-Day High, AAVE Remains Near 5-Week Peak
Monero raced to its highest point in ten days, as the token moved past a key resistance level on Wednesday. Today’s move sees the token rise higher for a fourth consecutive day, following a rebound from its long-term floor. Aave was also in the green, as it remained close to a five-week peak.
Despite cryptocurrency markets mostly trading lower on Wednesday, monero (XMR) was one of the exceptions, as it extended recent gains.
XMR/USD surged to an intraday peak of $148.46 earlier in today’s session, which comes less than 24 hours after it was trading at a low of $145.41.
Today’s move sees monero in the green for the fourth straight session, resulting in prices hitting their highest point since October 9.
Looking at the chart, hump day’s peak came following a breakout of a key resistance point of $147.00.
Another key observation can be seen from the 14-day relative strength index (RSI), which also moved past a ceiling of its own, at 52.75.
As of writing, the index is tracking at 53.88, which is its highest point since September 12.
Aave (AAVE) continued to trade near a multi-week high in today’s session, as the token remained near its recent ceiling.
Following a move to a five-week high of $83.33 on Tuesday, AAVE/USD hit a peak of $83.19 earlier today.
Yesterday’s high saw the token marginally break out of a resistance level of $83.30, with bulls attempting to stay close to this point today.
Bullish sentiment remains high, as the 10-day (red), and 25-day (blue) moving averages look set for an upwards crossover.
Should this happen, the current ceiling of $83.30 will likely be broken, with bulls potentially targeting the $90.00 level.
The RSI is currently tracking at 60.33, which is its strongest point since mid-August, and this could give an entrance for bears hoping to push the overbought market lower.
